Retire in Corozal Belize

More and more, the buzz amongst both expats and native Belizeans is that Corozal is the place to be. With real estate prices lower than many other areas of Belize, Corozal offers an outstanding location to live.

Corozal is fortuitously located in the very north of Belize, and receives far less rain than the monsoon-drenched areas in the south. Residents of Corozal enjoy warm tropical days without enduring months of tropical rain. Conveniently, the Mexican border is just nine miles away. Both the Mexican town of Chetumal and the Belizean duty-free zone offer outstanding prices on a wide variety of foods, household goods, and other items.

Corozal is blessed with a picturesque and lovely main square, offering residents and visitors alike a delightful Latin ambience. A community swimming pool, karaoke bars and art exhibitions bring together this English-speaking town located on the shore of the gorgeous Corozal Bay. Resisting the rampage of overeager developers, the waterfront along the bay is partially fronted by a delightful green parkland, offering outstanding views.

For those interested in exploring local culture, the nearby Santa Rita site offers visitors a view into the Mayan past. Many of the historic buildings in Corozal were built from stones pillaged from the ruins of Santa Rita, where the Mayans once conducted sacred ceremonies.

Many retirees in Corozal cherish the laid-back, relaxed lifestyle offered in Belize. When outstanding entertainment and dining options are available at affordable prices, life in Belize can be extremely economical. Visitors and locals love to amble through the big open-air market in town, where everything from handmade clothing to snacks are sold in a dizzying array of variety. Restaurants offer authentic Mexican food, familiar American favorites, and local Belizean dishes to satisfy every taste, all at very low prices.

Residents of Corozal enjoy the convenience of having Mexico just a short drive away, where big-box retailers, shopping malls and Sam’s Club offer super low prices on a wide variety of items. Returning to Corozal, residents indulge in a leisurely life of sailing, swimming, fishing and amateur archeology, or perhaps just a vibrant social life. A local museum offers informative stimulation and the city is dotted with lovely parks and green spaces.

With an ideal tropical climate, close convenience to low-cost material goods, affordable real estate prices, and the generous tax provisions in Belize, living in Corozal is extremely enjoyable.

One of the most exciting neighborhoods in Corozal is Orchid Bay, which offers villas, condominiums and undeveloped land in a well-developed community.
