The Best Place to Retire in Belize? You’ve Just Found it!

For seniors living in the U.S. whose assets and home values plummeted in 2010, recovery may still not be complete, which is why not all of them feel secure about living the dream they had been planning. According to the American Seniors Housing Association website, retiring to a planned community within the U.S. not only requires upfront costs “that range from $1,500 to $6,000,” but an initial investment of $100,000 may be required in addition to monthly fees.

As a result of this reality, the relaxing life you seek may come at a cost you can’t afford to pay, which is why Belize – and especially Carmelita Gardens – could be the answer to your prayers. Investing in the Carmelita Gardens lifestyle allows you to live the life you dream of for less money than you would spend in the U.S. and the environment is so relaxing, healing and welcoming, you might even live longer!

Why Carmelita Gardens?

For starters, retirees don’t necessarily want as much structure in their lives as many senior planned communities promote, leaving residents little space to “do their thing.” At Carmelita Gardens, residents control their lives within an environment best described by the communities ethos: “Independent Together.” Sprawling across 98-acres of farmland, Carmelita Gardens is as beloved by city refugees as it is by residents from rural areas.

Retirees who have moved to Carmelita Gardens become part of a grander plan: living a sustainable lifestyle within a riverfront village located in Belize’s Cayo District. Known as the “Breadbasket of the Caribbean,” if crops won’t grow in Cayo, they won’t grow anywhere! So whether you’ve thought about your own veggie garden or would be just as happy buying from local farmers, it’s your choice.

Can you afford Carmelita Gardens?

You bet. By purchasing a Carmelita Gardens home you can expect and realize more value for your dollar than comparable homes in the States. Houses of all sizes feature inspired architectural design, solid construction, and because residents embrace a sustainable lifestyle, off-grid utility packages (solar and rainwater systems), high-speed Internet and access to all of Belize’s aquatic, natural and cultural wonders are included.

Whether your idea of the perfect retirement home happens to be a rustic nest or a luxury villa, floor plans are already available, though you’re encouraged to customize your home so it’s unique. Expensive? You decide. Lots cost between $35K to $75K and houses are affordable , which means retirees spend less on living costs and more on having fun and enjoying life.
