Belize is a great choice for retirees. Belize offers retirees great weather, a thriving, vibrant culture, and a far lower cost of living than many other comparable places around the world.
In fact, once retirees start receiving their monthly checks, they should head down to Belize. No reason to stick around and suffer through another cold winter. Indeed, the “winter” months of Belize are the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, bird watching, fishing, and hiking.
Belize is unusual in that is located on the Caribbean coast of Central America, but English is the official language. There’s already a thriving expat society in Belize, so new arrivals are immediately made to feel right at home.
And what’s not to love? Locals are renowned for their friendliness and hospitality. There’s plenty of fresh fruit and seafood to enjoy, all at very affordable prices. And Belize has stunning landscapes ranging from white sandy beaches to lush rainforests teeming with exotic wildlife.
The top destination for expats and retirees is the Corozal District of Belize. Located in the north of the country on the border with Mexico, Corozal has everything – great weather, an amazing variety of plants and animals, spectacular views, and a laid-back Caribbean atmosphere.
Many people are surprised at just how affordable Belize is. All of the big airlines fly to the country, making it easy to get back and forth. There’s plenty of modern infrastructures, including healthcare facilities, internet, and good roads. And prices are generally far lower than in North America, especially when you include the option to shop at familiar low-cost retailers like Sam’s Club and Walmart just a short drive across the border in Mexico.
One of the best places for retirees, expats, and investors is Cerros Sands. This ” gated community in the country” is entirely self-reliant and off the grid, built to “green” principles. Cerros Sands is located on the Cerros Peninsula in Corozal District on the shores of the gorgeous Chetumal Bay.
Cerros Sands has completed homes, condominiums, and a number of attractive waterfront lots available that start as low as $27,700. Cerros Sands also offers financing at generous rates, making it very easy to buy property in this little corner of Paradise.
If you act before April 1, 2018, you can take advantage of Cerros Sands’s Fly and Buy Travel Program, which will refund all the costs of travel to the community (up to $2,000) for those who purchase property.
If you’ve ever wanted to retire in a beautiful country with lots to do and see that’s surprisingly affordable, consider Belize and the community of Cerros Sands.
