Retire Here, Not There: Belize
After putting in your time on the job and being careful with your savings, you’re looking forward to retirement. But now comes the biggest question of all – where should you retire?
It used to be that retirees would choose a new home primarily based on what the climate was like. Today, other factors are in play, including housing costs, health, and medical care. Retirees also want a place where they can enjoy a healthy lifestyle, including an active social life, good food to eat, and interesting things to do and see.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a place that checks all these boxes? A land of nice weather, a low cost of living, and exciting things to do? Well, no place is perfect, but we believe that Belize comes pretty darn close.
Belize offers retirees a great way to make a fresh start. The country is now served by non-stop flights from major cities across the United States and Canada. Belize is also the only English-speaking country in Central America and has a fantastic Caribbean climate with year-round balmy temperatures, abundant sunshine, and an incredibly pristine natural environment.
For many, Belize is the perfect mix of the excitement and conveniences of modern life and the relaxed, human pace that a Caribbean lifestyle can bring. Fresh organic produce is available widely, and it’s possible to enjoy fresh-caught seafood every single day. Belize has beaches, mountains, jungles, and rivers to explore, and there’s always something new to do and see.
One of the finest places for retirees to start their new life is Orchid Bay, a master-planned, gated community in northern Belize that is located on the sunny shores of Chetumal Bay. This retirement community has homes, casitas, villas, condominiums, and undeveloped lots for sale at very attractive prices. Residents enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle, enjoying modern comforts in one of the most beautiful natural areas of the country.
Residents are also within a short walk of beautiful green areas teeming with exotic birds and pristine nature. As for shopping, health care, and the excitement of big city life, that too is just a short distance away for Orchid Bay residents. The Mexican city of Chetumal is just 10 miles away, making it easy to zip into town for a day trip.
