Why An Increasing Number Of Expats Are Moving to Corozal

Belize has always been known as an idyllic place for expats to settle, but lately the northern district of Corozal has been making a distinct impressions on visitors and permanent residents alike. With all the conveniences and benefits of Mexico just a short drive over the border, Corozal is a shining slice of paradise. Whether to share the warm, tropical breezes or the laid-back social atmosphere, Corozal’s approximately 35,000 people eagerly welcome expat visitors and long-term residents alike.

The Best of Both Worlds

Many expats know that life in Belize can be somewhat expensive sometimes. Although residents enjoy the unspoiled nature, the lack of a manufacturing base means that many goods and products are imported, at a high price. Corozal’s close proximity to the border, and town of Chetumal, Mexico, means that residents can quickly and easily drive over and stock up on a wide variety of quality goods at far lower prices.

While many expats have first settled into other, more popular, areas of Belize, they quickly realized that the weather was less than truly ideal. While a tropical climate and lack of winter are desirable, many of Belize’s bigger cities receive quite a lot of rain over the course of a year. Corozal, nestled in northern Belize, receives far less rainfall than the rest of the country.

Get the Service You Deserve

Many expats appreciate their lifestyle in Corozal because of it’s relaxed, slow pace and easygoing way of life. For a relatively low price, (around $15 US dollars), it is possible to hire locals to come and clean your house, do repairs, landscape your property, and provide many other services. With help so affordable, expats can free up their time in order to enjoy the finer things in life.

Real Estate Prices in Corozal

The good news is that real estate prices in Corozal are generally far less than other places in Belize. Other destinations like Placencia and Ambergris Caye have outgrown their popularity, and now real estate prices have suffered as a result. But Corozal is on an upward trend, and there are plenty of good deals for residential developments, single-family homes and unimproved land.

The shining jewel of the Corozal district is the neighborhood of Orchid Bay, offering a variety of villas, condominiums and undeveloped land for sale. See http://orchidbaybelize.com/ for more info.
