Embrace a healthy, active lifestyle when you live or retire in Belize

retire in belize

Belize is increasingly becoming a popular destination for retirees. With sunny weather all year-round, an abundance of unspoiled nature, and so much to do and see, living in Belize fosters a healthy and active lifestyle for individuals.

In Belize, every day is an opportunity for a new adventure. Enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving on the Belize Barrier Reef, hiking through a pristine rainforest, climbing a pyramid at an ancient Maya ruin, or simply taking in a quiet dawn in the lush jungle. It’s easy to stay active and healthy in Belize with plenty of fresh, organic food, including lobster, conch, oranges, cashew nuts, mangoes, and even homegrown chocolate. Indeed, many expats who have retired in Belize note that they have lost weight, are in better shape, and feel better than they have in years.

The people of Belize exude that laid-back, Caribbean lifestyle that never relies on clocks or the hustle and bustle of the modern day world. With a zero risk of snow and lots of gorgeous sunshine, a retiree’s biggest decision of the day is whether to go beachcombing or head to the local farmer’s market for the latest in fresh produce and home cooked foods. Belize is the perfect country to take a stroll, do some meditating, enjoy yoga in a gorgeous natural area, curl up with a good book, or get lost finding yourself doing the things that make you happy.

When the weather is sunny, people naturally find themselves spending more time outdoors. Perhaps they’re puttering around in their garden, or cycling into town for a coffee or tea, taking a boat out in the water, or tooling around on a golf cart. With a large community of expats, it’s easy to stay busy with social events like card games, sewing circles, group sports like bowling, or meet-ups. You can drive your own car if you wish, or get along just fine without one, or call your favorite local taxi driver when you need to bring the groceries home.

Sunny and warm, nearly every day is ideal for a dip in the turquoise Caribbean Sea or a swimming pool. Climb on board a kayak and go explore the nearby cayes. Learn to ride a horse and make your way through a lush rainforest on unexplored trails. Canoe down a jungle river or simply climb aboard an inner tube and enjoy a lazy day on the water. Whatever suits your fancy is the order of the day, enjoying the bountiful blessings that Mother Nature has bestowed on Belize.
