Locals and visitors alike quickly bond over their abiding love for Belize. Whether it’s appreciation of the pristine nature, the exciting adventure opportunities, or simply the people-friendly pace of daily life, Belize is quickly becoming one of the top places to emigrate or retire.
Here are 10 reasons why you should quit your job and move to Belize:
1 – Stunning nature abounds
More than a third of Belize is set aside as a nature reserve or national park. Belize abounds with a stunning landscape of waterfalls, mountains, beaches, and jungles brimming with wildlife.
2 – Great healthcare is affordable
Minor issues can be easily and affordably resolved with a quick trip to one of Belize’s many clinics. For more serious issues, residents can travel to neighboring Mexico or fly to North America.
You’ll never have to worry about snow, ice, and freezing rain in Belize as the country enjoys lots of sunshine and balmy weather all year long.
4 – Proximity to North America
Airlines like Delta, United, Southwest, WestJet, and American Airlines offer non-stop service to Belize as well as the airport in Cancun just across the border from Belize’s Corozal District.
5 – An established expat community
In places like Cerros Sands in Belize’s Corozal District, a well-established expat community organizes social events, games, and activities.
6 – A healthy lifestyle
The weather alone allows people to spend more time enjoying the great outdoors. Fresh, organic, locally-grown food, a relaxed lifestyle, and people-friendly attitudes are ideal for promoting a healthy lifestyle in Belize.
7 – A stable government and economy
Since gaining independence in 1981, Belize has enjoyed a stable and prosperous parliamentary democracy. The local currency is permanently pegged to the U.S. dollar, insulating it from strong fluctuations in the global economy.
8 – Outdoor adventure opportunities
Whether you like to sail, swim, fish, hike, bird watch, hike, kayak, canoe, raft, snorkel, scuba dive, mountain climb, or simply relax on the beach, there are plenty of outdoor adventure opportunities for everyone.
9 – Laid back lifestyle
Belizeans take full advantage of their Caribbean coastline to emulate the laid-back, people-friendly, relaxed lifestyle that makes visiting and living in the country so enjoyable.
10 – A generous local culture
Whether you’re interacting with established expats or locals, Belize is home to very friendly and open people. No matter where you come from, you’ll soon feel right at home in Belize.
Located in Belize’s scenic Corozal District, Cerros Sands is a master-planned, gated community offering retirees and expats affordable finished homes, seaview lots, beachfront lots, and lots with deep water channel access to the nearby Chetumal Bay.
