Enjoy a Slower, More Fulfilled Life When You Retire in Belize

The warm, sun-dappled landscapes and gentle Caribbean breezes are just part of what makes retired life in Belize so enjoyable. An abundance of unspoiled nature, excellent infrastructure, top-quality healthcare and plenty of fresh, organic, locally-grown fruits and vegetables truly make Belize a retirement paradise.

The government of Belize offers very attractive programs for retirees that include permanent residency rights and generous tax exemptions for the importation of personal items, including vehicles and boats.

Life Moves Slow in Belize

Although part of the Central American mainland, Belize seems to move to the gentle pace of a laid-back Caribbean island. When visitors ask locals what time it is, the most standard response is “In Belize, we don’t do time.” Retirees find themselves leaving their watches and smartphones behind as they become more attuned with the natural rhythms of nature.

Sample some of the many different cuisines that influence Belize cooking, with contributions from Mexican, British, Caribbean and Maya foods. Mingle with locals, exchanging warm and friendly greetings with English-speaking people who are never in a rush.

Just a Short Flight Away

One of the greatest advantages of retiring in Belize is just how close it is to North America. Flights leave daily from Belize City to a dozen major cities in the United States, including the new Southwest routes to/from Denver that will begin early next year.

With so many major airlines competing for routes to Belize, the cost of travel to/from the United States is quite affordable. Whether you need to fly home for a quick visit or want to welcome friends and family to your new retirement paradise, convenient and affordable flights make it easy to stay connected.

Retiring at Orchid Bay

Belize is a great country to retire in the Caribbean not only because life moves slow and life is more fulfilling but because it is affordable when compared to other Caribbean destinations. Orchid Bay, an established community popular with expats in Belize’s northern Corozal District, offers modern conveniences at very affordable prices.

An additional benefit is that Corozal District is just across the border from Mexico’s Quintana Roo State, home to Cancun and lots of shopping options, including low-cost favorites like Wal-Mart and Home Depot.

A master-planned, gated community ideal for expats looking to retire or buy a vacation home in the Caribbean, Orchid Bay is an established community offering condominiums, land, and villas in one of the most beautiful locations in Belize.
