Must you be a millionaire to buy a winter home in the Caribbean so you can jet back and forth as soon as the weather becomes impossible to navigate? Not these days. Buy an affordable winter home in Belize, where convenient flight schedules posted by major airlines can transport you to sun and fun in just a couple of hours.
You can be back home fast if you get an invitation to a family gathering, class reunion or you just want to see friends and family. Everyone speaks English, so no translation app or guide is necessary. And Belize has become the MVP (most favored place) for U.S. ex-pats delighted to discover a retirement program (QRP) that does everything but offer the keys to the kingdom to northerners eager for more manageable lives.
The secret to having a successful winter home experience is having likeminded people in your universe, so whether you decide to stick around all year or just stay during the winter months, you move to a place with a ready-made community. That place is Corozal and the community is Cerros Sands where winter is just a few pages on a calendar.
Consider this amazing property
The American developer whose ideas and creativity helped shape the Cerros Sands community named one waterfront property “The Mariner” for obvious reasons. For northerners eager to live off the grid, this affordable two-bedroom, two-bath home is sublime. Solar power, an efficient sanitation system and 26,000-gallon water tank are the epitome of efficiency.
Add more room by making this a two-level abode with a flat roof for entertaining or keep the house as is for the sake of simplicity. Of course, there’s nothing simple about a waterfront home with a roomy side patio and boat slip ready to accommodate your water craft. Ready for occupancy now, you can buy this property before the first snowflake lands on your current roof.
A community awaits
Whether you prefer The Mariner or The K’inich Ahau, a 2-bedroom, 2-bath condominium, you get a thriving community in return for your investment. U.S. retirees and couples who are still working can afford winter homes within the Cerros Sands community because financing is readily available, too.
What usually sells snowbirds on moving to Cerros Sands besides affordability? Proximity to everything from Mexico to retailers like Walmart and Home Depot, plus readily available state-of-the-art healthcare facilities. But as those who currently reside at Cerros Sands attest, it’s the “community in the country” environment that welcomes newcomers into a world of Caribbean relaxation that includes every modern convenience necessary to enjoy a carefree life.
Sound like the lifestyle you’ve been searching for? Seeing is believing and a Cerros Sands visit will convince you that life is too short to put off making this decision. Winter is coming. What are you waiting for?
