For a taste of everything Belize has to offer, expats, retirees, and investors alike are heading straight to the Corozal District – the northernmost district in the nation. The district, which is home to around 35,000 people, shares a long border with Mexico’s Quintana Roo state and was once the heart of Belize‘s sugar growing industry.
Since then, the region has been transformed into a stunning seafront community that offers an abundance of outdoor activities such as fly fishing and snorkeling. Every year, the district receives more than 300 days of beautiful sunshine – making it the perfect location to relax and unwind. Given that Corozal District has so much to offer, it is no surprise that so many people are choosing to purchase real estate in the area.
Of course, many expats and retirees are drawn to Corozal District because of the fact that Belize is the only country in Central America where English is an official language. This makes it much easier to communicate with locals, conduct business, attend social events, and make new friends.
For a taste of the familiar, residents of Corozal District can always hop across the border into Mexico. Here, they are able to visit American restaurant chains and shop at large American retailers such as Walmart and Sam’s Club. Put simply, life in Corozal District offers all of the comforts of home with a little extra sunshine and much lower monthly bills.
Anyone who is seriously considering a move to Corozal District will also be pleased to know that Belize makes it very easy to relocate there. Its unique Qualified Retired Persons Program requires just 30 days per year in the country and allows you to enjoy tax-free importing of your personal belongings and vehicle.
If retiring to Corozal District sounds like a good idea to you, you may be wondering where you should buy property in the region. Well, many expats and retirees in the region opt to move to Cerros Sands. This master-planned gated community is situated on the shores of Chetumal Bay and is built to the highest environmental standards.
The community offers homes, condominiums and cleared parcels beginning at just $17,700. This low price, coupled with its beautiful design and burgeoning expat community, makes Cerros Sands the perfect place to purchase a vacation home or investment property in Corozal District.
