Where to Live in Belize? The Answer, of course, is Corozal


Chances are, your job or family dictated where you wound up living when you were just getting started in life. You felt comfortable picking up your household and moving to a new city or state. But now that retirement is looming, your reasons for putting down roots are different, which is likely why you’re seeking a destination that’s conducive to providing the life of leisure you’ve dreamed about over time.

Where to move? Belize, of course. This Caribbean destination outshines its neighbors because English is the nation’s first language and ex-pats are treated like kings and queens. Visit Belize to learn more about a nation so committed to new residents it has put into place a unique Qualified Retirement Program that includes tax breaks and myriad other incentives.

But once you target Belize, which destination makes the most sense for a retiree? That’s no mystery: it’s Corozal, a small, manageable, welcoming district that’s both off the beaten path and full of the resources you seek. Corozal is ideally situated just 89 miles from Belize’s airport where major carriers (United, American, Delta and Southwest) offer daily flights so you can return home often thanks to competitive airfares.

Corozal is also close in close proximity to Mexico (just seven miles away), but if you’ve no desire to stray across the border, plenty of Corozal sites and attractions will keep you content, from the Shipstern Nature Reserve and ancient Mayan temples to wildlife, as well as ocean access for recreational fun.

This diverse area happens also to be a delightful patchwork of the many cultures found in Belize and therein likes its charm. The area’s bustling town center features a splashing water fountain at Central Park where ex-pats and other Corozal residents meet up to socialize. Find banks, a library, churches, eateries, shops and a produce market nearby and with more people moving here, future business start-ups are on the horizon.

Corozal has plenty to recommend it that transcends proximity, commercial resources and beauty: for retiring home seekers, nothing surpasses Corozal’s fully-developed and appointed residential community: Orchid Bay. This gated, master-planned village pairs modern construction and infrastructure with a romantic Caribbean vibe that’s both safe and a great example of ecological responsibility.

Purchase a beachfront condo, waterway villa, house or vacant lot in the Orchid Bay community and you can customize your residence to create the perfect retirement home. Belize’s Qualified Retirement Program recognizes ex-pats who are as young as 45 and you won’t believe the tax breaks to which you’re entitled as a Belize homeowner. And wait until you meet the ready-made community of ex-pats with whom you will fit right in.

Is there more? Of course there is. Which is why you owe it to yourself to visit and see for yourself why so many of your fellow countrymen have fallen in love with Belize. Come for the beauty and the easy lifestyle. Stay for the retirement experience of your dreams!
