Belize is an eclectic, sun-kissed country located in Central America just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. As the only nation in the region where English is the official language, Belize has emerged as one of the top vacation and retirement destinations. Now with all of the biggest airlines in the United States offering non-stop flights from major cities across the country, the Belize real estate market is starting to really heat up.
Some expats move to Belize after enjoying a lovely vacation while others are drawn to the gorgeous properties available at affordable prices. The Belize government has many programs in place that encourage foreign investment, including a generous residency program that allows retirees and investors to import personal goods (including vehicles) completely tax-free.
If you’ve been looking into retiring or buying property in Belize, Cerros Sands can help. A gated, planned community in Belize’s northern Corozal District, Cerros Sands was developed by a Californian man and his family that live on site. Cerros Sands is located right on the shores of the beautiful Chetumal Bay across from the popular resort island of Ambergris Caye. Cerros Sands has completed homes and waterfront lots starting at just $25,000.
Belize is a relatively small country, but expats generally are drawn to Belize’s northern Corozal District just a few miles from the border with Mexico. Blessed by favorable trade winds that ensure pleasant weather year round, Corozal is the right mix of small town community and pristine nature.
Beyond the sailing, swimming, scuba diving, and snorkeling opportunities in and around Chetumal Bay, Corozal is just a short distance from popular destinations like Belize City (and its international airport), the ancient Maya ruins of Altun Ha and Lamanai, and the huge nature reserves of central Belize.
One of the best features of living in Corozal District is its close proximity to the border town of Chetumal in Mexico. Because Mexico has a far more advanced industrial economy than Belize, shoppers in Chetumal can take advantage of familiar low-cost retailers like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club.
Whether you’re looking to purchase a completed home or want to develop your own land, the possibilities are nearly infinite in Belize. Cerros Sands has years of experience in welcoming expats and retirees into their growing community, and the rising popularity of the tourism market in Belize ensures that property will continue to maintain its value.
