The Central American region has long been a popular destination for individuals from the United States, Canada, and elsewhere to retire to. Many of these retirees end up settling in either Costa Rica or Belize. If you are considering joining them, you may be wondering which of these two countries is right for you – so let’s read on to find out how they compare.
One of the primary concerns that many retirees have is that they should be able to easily make new friends, carry out business, and interact with local governments in their new home. However, this can sometimes be a little tricky for English speakers who move to Costa Rica – since Spanish is the official language there. Luckily though, English speaking retirees who want to enjoy a Central American lifestyle without the language concerns can move to Belize – where English is the official language (and Spanish is also widely spoken).
Of course, one of the other things that retirees often want to enjoy during their golden years is a little bit of peace and quiet. This can be somewhat difficult to achieve in Costa Rica due to its high population density of around 220 people per square mile. In Belize, however, you will have plenty of space and privacy. The nation’s population density of just 37 people per square mile is one of the best in the region.
