Where to Live in Belize

where to live in belize

Corozal District is one of the best places to live in Belize.

With more than a third of the country set aside as a nature reserve or national park, Belize is one of the last remaining places on the planet with stunningly beautiful places to visit and to live. Thanks to a combination of balmy year-round weather, pristine nature, delicious food, friendly locals, and retirement-friendly laws, Belize is rapidly becoming one of the hottest markets for expats and retirees.

One of the best places to live in Belize is Corozal District located in the north of the country where it meets the Mexican border. Thanks to favorable breezes from temperate latitudes and a number of other factors, Corozal District was chosen by AARP as the top spot to retire in Belize.

Expats and retirees living in Corozal District benefit from the best of both worlds. Just a few miles over the border lies the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, home to the popular resort of Cancun as well as familiar low-cost retailers like Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart. Residents of Corozal can get their medical check-ups, do some shopping, and fly to the United States with ease from the airport in Cancun.

Corozal District is also located right across the beautiful Chetumal Bay from Ambergris Caye and the town of San Pedro, the popular tourist gateway to the splendors of the Belize Barrier Reef. With its own spectacular Maya ruins nearby, beautiful parks, and close access to top attractions like Belize City, the Placencia Peninsula, and San Ignacio, residents of Corozal are ideally situated.

Corozal District in Belize enjoys very pleasant weather all year-round. Daytime maximum temperatures range from around 83 degrees Fahrenheit in January to a maximum of around 90 degrees in June. Nighttime lows in Corozal range from about 63 degrees Fahrenheit in February to a comfortable 70 in July and August, with plenty of cool breezes to keep humidity and insects at bay.

One of the best waterfront communities for expats choosing to retire is Cerros Sands in Corozal District. Named for an ancient Maya site located just a few miles away, Cerros Sands is a master-planned, gated community on Chetumal Bay, the perfect place for expats looking for a primary home, second home, retirement, investment, or recreational property.

Created and built by an American developer who lives on-site with his family, Cerros Sands offers a fantastic opportunity to live, work, and play in one of the premier communities in Belize.
