The Perfect Spot for Expats in Belize

The Perfect Spot for Expats in Belize

One of the fastest growing destinations for enterprising North American expats is Belize. With fabulous weather year-round, a relaxed lifestyle, and plenty of healthy outdoor activities, it’s easy to see why so many expats feel right at home in Belize. The only country in the region where English is the official language, Belize has a low cost of living, oodles of Caribbean charm, and a well-established expat community that welcomes newcomers with open arms.

In contrast to other countries in the region which are suffering from high property prices and inundations of tourists, Belize has successfully managed to maintain its rustic charm. Approximately the same size as Vermont with a population of just over 360,000 people, Belize is predominately a rural nation with dozens of large national parks and nature preserves. Life in Belize is dictated by the ancient rhythms of village life, the gentle crash of the waves on beaches and tropical islands, yet the modern luxuries of urban life are always close by, especially for residents of Corozal District.

Corozal District

The Perfect Spot for Expats in Belize

The northernmost region of Belize, Corozal District serves as the gateway to the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. Residents of Corozal District have easy access to a host of modern services and conveniences across the border in Mexico, including the airport at Cancun and familiar low-cost retailers like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club.

Corozal District lies just across the beautiful Chetumal Bay from the popular Belizean island of Ambergris Caye, a popular tourist destination and jumping off point to explore the world-class scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, and fishing opportunities on the Belize Barrier Reef.

Orchid Bay, a master-planned, gated community located in Corozal District, has waterway villas, beachfront condominiums, and undeveloped lots ideal for expats wishing to retire or move to Belize.

With a well-developed infrastructure and thriving expat community, Orchid Bay offers modern conveniences and luxuries in a setting close to all of the most popular attractions in Belize. Residents of Orchid Bay can enjoy a gourmet restaurant at the popular Tradewinds Restaurant, relax at the Orchid Bay Beach Club, or explore the sheltered waters of the Bay of Chetumal.

Orchid Bay is conveniently located close to exciting activities, including bird watching, wildlife spotting, exploring ancient Maya ruins like Cerros and Santa Rita, enjoying the excitement of urban life in Corozal Town, or heading further onward to popular destinations like San Ignacio, Placencia, and Dangriga. With finished homes starting in the mid $300s and attractive homesites still available, Orchid Bay is the best place for expats to enjoy the good life in Belize.
