Whether you’re looking for a place with balmy temperatures and abundant sunshine or simply want to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern America, few countries are as welcoming and easy to move to as Belize. Located just a few hours by plane from the United States, Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language.
Lots of people consider moving abroad, but get put off because they think it might be too expensive or require a lot of complicated paperwork and visas. While it may be under the radar for many folks, Belize has quietly become one of the top destinations for retirees and expats thanks to its liberal residence requirements, fabulous weather, delicious organic food, and laid-back Caribbean lifestyle.
Belize is a small country about the same size as New Hampshire but with a staggeringly diverse landscape ranging from pristine jungles and enormous forests to sun-kissed beaches and tropical islands. Best of all, the government of Belize offers generous allowances for qualifying individuals aged 45 or older as part of its QRP program, including the tax-free importation of personal items and vehicles. You don’t need a visa to visit Belize for up to 30 days, and the QRP program only requires you to spend one month a year in the country.
The international airport in Belize has non-stop connections to major cities across the United States and Canada. And residents of northern Belize have access to the Cancun Airport just across the border in Mexico which has even more flights to North America, making it easy to stay in touch, obtain medical treatment, or manage businesses back home while enjoying the good life in Belize.
“I’ve been living with my family in Belize for more than a decade, building Cerros Sands as the ultimate community for retirees and expats,” said Mark Leonard, developer of Cerros Sands. “As the property market is rapidly heating up, now is definitely the right time to get in Belize.”
Cerros Sands is a master-planned, gated community located in the north of Belize just a few miles from the border with Mexico. Featuring beautiful custom homes and prime waterfront lots, Cerros Sands is becoming the finest community in Northern Belize!. Park your boat in your own backyard.
