Belize Real Estate Properties: Why This Is the Perfect Place to Retire In Belize
Thanks to an awesome location with proximity to Chetumal, Mexico, generous tax exemptions and permanent residency permits for qualifying foreigners, Corozal in Belize is one of the best places to retire anywhere in the world.
The lovely area of Corozal in northern Belize enjoys all of the fabulous tropical weather as the rest of the country along with refreshing breezes blowing in from the east that keep excessive humidity and heat at bay. And while there’s an average rainfall equivalent to Florida during the rainy season, Corozal receives less rain than the rest of the country. With sunny weather and warm temperatures (mid to high 80’s during the day, 70’s at night) all year round and a steady breeze keeping you cool and insects away, Corozal is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you’re interested in gardening, bird watching, sailing, bike riding, Mayan Temples, hiking or fishing, there’s always plenty to do in Corozal.
Probably the best feature of Corozal is its strategic location at the intersection between pristine wilderness and modern conveniences. There is a well-established expat community in Corozal and a wide range of modern shopping options are located just across the border in the town of Chetumal, Mexico, home to familiar favorites like Home Depot, Sams Club, WalMart and The Americana Mall with a multiplex movie theater.
A master planned community right on the bay, Cerros Sands is an excellent place to purchase or buy a vacation home, investment property or retirement home. Finished properties are available as well as choice undeveloped parcels with a beach view or direct access to deep waters, ideal for owners of private boats. With sea-view parcels starting at just $17,700 and channel parcels starting at $29,000, and sea-fronts at $79,000 now is the perfect time to consider Cerros Sands. Nowhere in Belize will you find comparable properties for these prices.
Designed and developed by Mark Leonard, the community of Cerros Sands is rapidly becoming one of the most popular destinations for retirees. Just eight miles from Chetumal, Cerros Sands is also perfectly situated just a short distance from the island of Ambergris Caye, the towns of Corozal and Orange Walk, and some of the best preserved Maya ruins in Belize.
With fabulous weather, an established expat community, government policies that welcome foreign retirees, and some of the most beautiful nature found anywhere on Earth, Corozal is rapidly becoming one of the most popular places to retire.
