Nestled between the popular island of Ambergris Caye and the southern border of Mexico lies Belize’s Corozal District. Fronting the beautiful Chetumal Bay, Corozal District is an ideal mix of laid-back Caribbean and modern conveniences with a thriving expat community. Benefiting from some of the finest weather in the country due to regular breezes coming from more temperate latitudes, Corozal District is blessed with more than 300 days of gorgeous sunshine.
The cost of living in Corozal is very affordable, and the area lies just over the border of Quintana Roo state in Mexico, and Chetumal home to low-cost retailers like Wal-Mart and further up the coast the popular resort town of Cancun with many low-cost flights to the United States. Chetumal is also expanding its airport to enable it to accept International Flights. Retirees and expats in Belize can benefit from Belize’s unique QRP (Qualified Retired Persons Program) that requires just 30 days in the country per year, duty and tax-free importation of all household and personal goods, and the right to import a vehicle (including boats and small planes) duty and tax-free.
Close to all of the popular attractions in the country, including nature reserves, the Belize Barrier Reef, the colorful island town of San Pedro, horseback riding trails, and Maya ruins, Corozal District is an ideal spot to hike, sail, swim, or simply spend time outdoors bird watching, gardening, or relaxing on the beach.
Belize is the only country in Central America where the official language is English, making it simple and easy for expats to feel right at home. Corozal District has a thriving expat community that regularly meets for social events, fun sports events like bowling night, and to celebrate American and Canadian holidays. Belize has a stable, peaceful democratic government that inherited a system of British laws, making it easy to understand and enforce contracts.
