Have you ever dreamed of living in a country where you can languish in the warm waters of the Caribbean? Visit ancient wonders, view wildlife in their natural habitat at your own pace, and enjoy unique cuisine throughout the day? If the answer is yes, it is time for you to make a trip to the beautiful, lush country of Belize.
Belize is located on the western coast of Central America. The land of Belize offers you a range of landscapes to enjoy. From the pristine beaches and warm waters of the Caribbean, to the hills of the Maya Mountains, to the dense and lush rain forest reserves. The average temperature of Belize ranges from a comfortable 84 degrees along the coast to a cooler 69 degrees in the hill regions.
Do you love scuba diving? Imagine doing what you love every day of the week. Belize is a scuba divers paradise. Divers can swim with the various marine-life among the 185-mile long barrier reef, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Do you enjoy reflecting on history or visiting ancient sites? If so, after your dive, take a trip further inland and step back in time by visiting the Mayan temples built between 900 AD and 250 AD. Imagine how the temples looked back during the time of the great Mayan empire! After you experience those man-made marvels, enjoy the foliage and fauna of the rainforests where you may catch a glimpse of the colorful Toucan, the Belizean national bird.
By now, you are probably hungry. Not to worry, Belizean cuisine is a unique creation that is a fusion of the diversity of Belizean culture. Sample the local favorites like Belizean Cow Foot soup or filling Mestizo Ganarches. Take advantage of the fresh grilled seafood or enjoy some familiar favorites like fried chicken or barbecued ribs. Sip on the freshly squeezed juice of local fruits while you enjoy your meal, but don’t forget the dessert! Try some lemon meringue pie, cassava cake or maybe a little of both.
Living in Belize will not only give you the opportunity to enjoy unlimited, daily activities, but you will also enjoy life at a slower pace. Compared to other countries, Belize has a low population giving you more room to relax or explore, and unlike other Central American countries, the official language in Belize is English. Saving the best for last, the cost of living in Belize is low. The exchange rate between US dollars and Belizean dollars is 2 to 1.
Belize has so much to offer from its variety of activities to its slower pace of life and low cost-of-living. Visit Belize for your vacation, come back, and make it your home.
