Nestled between the gorgeous Corozal Bay in Belize and Mexico’s state of Quintana Roo (home to the resort town of Cancun), the Cerros Peninsula is one of the most popular locations in Belize for expat retirees and vacation homes. The deep waters of Corozal Bay are ideal for sailing while the year-round sun and mild temperatures are ideal for relaxing and enjoying life in the great outdoors.
Cerros Peninsula Is a Model for Investment Potential
The Cerros Peninsula is a curving isthmus of land that extends into the gorgeous Corozal Bay that forms the border between the Mexican state of Quintana Roo and the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize.
With a vibrant ex-pat community, good infrastructure, access to affordable and high-quality healthcare, and plenty of leisure activities like fishing, gardening, hiking, sailing, swimming, and social events, Cerros is rapidly becoming one of the most popular destinations for expats to retire to or invest in property.
A robust legal system inherited from the British and all contracts, deeds, and leases written in English make it reliable and easy for expats to buy property or invest in real estate in Belize. With more and more airlines adding non-stop flights from cities in Canada and the United States to Belize thanks to Belize’s rising popularity as a tourist destination, now is the time to get in on a property market that is rapidly heating up.
Cerros Peninsula Is Very Accessible and Close to Many Attractions
The Cerros Peninsula is named after the Maya ruins at Cerros (from a Spanish term meaning “hills), a site that was occupied for thousands of years as a bridge between Ambergris Caye and more northern sites in Mexico. Cerros is also close to other popular Maya sites in Belize like Altun Ha, Santa Rita, and Lamanai.
Just across the strait from Cerros is the popular tourist destination of Ambergris Caye and its colorful capital of San Pedro. Just beyond Ambergris Caye is the island of Caye Caulker, and some of the top scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing spots along the Belize Barrier Reef. The Cerros Peninsula also has plenty of wild, natural spots with some of the country’s top nature reserves and parks just a short drive away.
One special benefit of living in the Cerros Peninsula is that it lies just a few miles from the border with Mexico.
