Once a little-known backwater difficult to get to, Belize is now a thriving tourist destination experiencing double-digit increases and a growing reputation amongst Hollywood’s elite as the perfect getaway vacation destination.
More than a decade ago, the government of Belize began charting a course to open the door towards foreign investment, including ownership of real estate. Today, foreigners enjoy the same rights and privileges of locals when it comes to buying, selling, and renting property, which opened the door to a real estate boom. As the least densely populated country in Central America, it wasn’t long before savvy investors began to snap up prime beachfront properties.
The government of Belize also has strong asset protections in place. A respected tax haven, Belize does not impose any capital gains taxes, and foreigners are permitted to set up offshore corporations to manage property, making Belize a very secure way to protect hard-earned assets.
Now that the floodgates have opened and more and more tourists are flocking to the area, all of the biggest airlines in the United States and Canada have stepped up to offer non-stop flights from major cities across North America. This has made owning property even more advantageous.
Cerros Sands is a gated, master-planned community designed by an American developer who lives onsite with his family in northern Belize. Located on the Cerros Peninsula, all properties in Cerros Sands enjoy beautiful views and easy access to Chetumal Bay and beyond to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Belize Barrier Reef.
