Living, Retiring or Investing in Belize

Whether it is living, retiring or investing in Belize, the country is a haven that offers all three. Enjoying explosive growth in the number of vacationers coming from North America, Belize is poised to challenge Costa Rica for visitors wanting to experience fantastic weather, delicious food, and spectacularly beautiful nature.

Belize is blessed with hundreds of offshore islands along the second-largest barrier reef in the world. The tourist hotspot of San Pedro on the island of Ambergris Caye or picturesque uninhabited islands like Tobacco Caye that are world-renowned for their sailing, fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving opportunities provide an entire world of Caribbean adventures and fun. On the mainland, over a third of the country is set aside as nature preserves and national parks where activities like bird watching, hiking, and horseback riding are popular activities.

Beyond the abundance of natural resources, Belize is known for its incredibly friendly and unparalleled hospitality. Locals are proud of their heritage and country, eager to welcome visitors into their homes or to share meals made from fresh organic fruits and vegetables. Belize is also the only country in the region where English is the official language, making it easy and comfortable to get around for North American visitors and expats alike.

Belize enjoys a stable and peaceful parliamentary democracy. Belize inherited a robust legal system from the British where property rights are strictly enforced following laws written in English. The local currency, the Belizean dollar, is permanently pegged at 2 BZD to 1 U.S. dollar, making it simple and easy to manage prices.

 Belize also offers unique advantages to retirees through its Qualified Retirement Program (QRP) that give permanent residents the ability to bring in personal goods and vehicles (including boats) duty-free. Real estate is affordable and foreign ownership is encouraged. Top airlines like Southwest, American, and WestJet offer regular and affordable service from North America to Belize, making it very easy to travel to and from the country.

With lots of sunshine, fresh air, delicious food, and tons of things to see and do, it’s no wonder living, retiring or investing in Belize is becoming one of the top places!
