Expat Opportunities and Green Living in Orchid Bay Belize

Taking the opportunity to move abroad in search of a comfortable retirement is an option for today’s successful couple–especially if they’re eager to create a new kind of life in a nation that doesn’t just welcome retirees but extends lavish benefits, incentives and perks just for making the move. Why not make your own list of the opportunities you are sure to discover once you make a decision to move to this laid-back Caribbean paradise?

Opportunity #1: Live a life of ease and find how it feels to kiss stress goodbye, because in Belize, your money stretches further than anywhere else in the region. U.S. currency is welcomed by so many businesses throughout the nation, you don’t even have to memorize the simple currency exchange rate of $1USD = $2BZD!

Opportunity #2: Keep speaking English, just as you did back home. This former British colony has retained its charm and language so you won’t have to waste valuable retirement time learning a new language when you could be having fun instead. On the other hand, if you’ve always wanted to learn a second language, have at it!

Opportunity #3: Take advantage of Belize’s Qualified Retirement Program. Benefits include no inheritance taxes, low income taxes, the tariff-free importation of household goods, cars, boats and even planes and the ability to continue on or start a new business without worrying about having your salary taxed either.

Opportunity #4: Live in a nation that takes seriously its obligation to Mother Nature. Conservation measures and environmentally sustainable programs are everywhere throughout Belize—even in communities like Orchid Bay in Corozal, where this ex-pat Mecca holds the highest-rated Environmental Compliance certificate in Northern Belize. From resorts to preserves, protecting the land and the sea are priorities for Belizeans who take pride in their natural resources.

Opportunity #5: Improve your health and perhaps add years to your life courtesy of Belize’s lifestyle and laid-back vibe. Fresh food, clean air, a slow pace and plenty of recreational opportunities at your fingertips allow ex-pats to create their own healthy way of life and on their own terms.

Opportunity #6: Enjoy endless numbers of intellectual and recreational experiences without having to travel perpetually to reach them. Whether you’re interested in learning creole cooking, diving the barrier reef, touring Mayan ruins or just joining a club to explore an interest you had no time for in the past, you can do it all close to home once you say yes to joining the Orchid Bay community.

Opportunity #7: Expect a stress-free home purchase experience when buying a home in Orchid Bay where beauty, convenience, modern infrastructure and an immediate community of friends await. Home prices fit most budgets, sale transactions are accomplished in English and you’ve never seen property taxes this low, leaving you with more disposable income to spend on the retirement experience of your dreams.
