Do you spend the long, cold winters dreaming of when you can escape to a warmer climate? Well, in Belize, you can enjoy “summer” all year ’round. Even in the height of the “winter” months, the weather in Belize is perfect for relaxing on the beach, enjoying a nature hike, or enjoying some snorkeling.
In Belize, owning property is both affordable and simple. For far less money than a comparable location in the States, you can enjoy living in paradise. But you’ll have to act fast as the real estate market in Belize is red hot. Many savvy investors are now using their properties as rental units or as an AirBNB in order to accommodate the double-digit growth in tourism. In fact, many experts are predicting that real estate prices will double in the next five years.
Best of all, the government of Belize is working hard to make sure that the country remains an unspoiled slice of paradise. In December 2017, the government banned all offshore oil drilling, an important step in preserving the reef. And on the mainland, the government has declared more than half the country’s territory a protected nature reserve, wildlife sanctuary, or national park.
And when you live in Belize, there’s always plenty to do and see. Many people move to Belize full-time simply because of all the great outdoor activities like bird watching, horseback riding, nature hikes, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing. Belize is also home to hundreds of ancient Maya sites, many of which are still in the process of being excavated.
The yearly calendar in Belize is packed full of fun festivals, holidays, and events. Exciting sporting events like the La Ruta Maya canoe race and the Holy Saturday Cross-Country bicycling race draw huge crowds. And festivals like the Costa Maya beauty pageant and Lobsterfests ensure there’s always something to do.
One of the best places to retire or invest in luxury real estate is Cerros Sands. A true “community in the country,” Cerros Sands is a master-planned, gated community located in Belize’s northern Corozal District on the shores of Chetumal Bay. Amazingly, waterfront properties start at just $17,770, but you’ll have to act soon in order to lock in these prices.
Cerros Sands is a self-sustainable, “green” community that offers investors and retirees the chance to enjoy the good life in a beautiful Caribbean setting. Your little corner of paradise is waiting for you at Cerros Sands.
