Belize is an extraordinary place to call home. With plenty to do and waterfront properties up and down the sandy shoreline, it is no wonder that so many have chosen to relocate to the country.
You can live in a community that is filled with friendly people and close to everything you could ever want for fun and entertainment day or night. Here are just a few highlights for those who may be considering a move to Belize.
The Beach is a Great Stress Reliever
With beautiful water all around you, stress can be put out of mind for days on end. You can lay out in the sun and get a good dose of Vitamin D. Be sure to take your sunscreen if you plan on staying out long. The beach is the perfect place for snorkeling, swimming, boating, fishing and other water fun including skiing, sailing and even collecting unique shells. With clear waters, this is a place you can sit and forget your worries and troubles for hours at a time. Simply put, the beach is a great way to relieve stress whether you are sitting on the sand alone of enjoying the company of others.
Laid Back Atmosphere
Instead of the usual 9 to 5 shuffle and bustle that you may be accustomed to in your busy life, Belize provides a comfortable, laid back atmosphere. You already know how peaceful the beaches are, but you can also take a quiet stroll through the local parks or have a little fun while shopping the local markets. It’s easy to feel like time stands still as you take time to just relax and enjoy the scenery around you. Even the people you meet will usually be friendly and easy to get along with no matter where you go.
Whether you want to find a pre-built villa right on the beach, or build your own, there are plenty of options for you to choose from that allow you to live right on the beach where you can enjoy all that living by the sea offers. Coastal communities offer a closeness with others not always seen in busier areas and it’s nice to be able to be part of these tightly knit communities. It isn’t difficult to make your dream home become a reality right on the beach.
Fresh air, fresh food including freshly caught seafood keeps everyone in good spirits as well as good health. With a laid-back atmosphere coupled with healthy living, everyone in Belize has better overall health and wellness. This is a balance you may not be able to get back home because of unhealthy eating habits, stress and a busy lifestyle, but it is one that welcomes you when you live in Belize. Belize is a safe country for residents as well as visitors and it is easy to find a safe area to live. This should be enough to convince you to make the move.
Moving Your Household Can Be Easily Done
While many people move to Belize with a backpack and a suitcase or two on the plane, others choose to bring along some household goods and bulkier items that simply won’t fit in an overhead luggage rack. To import home goods, you will need to hire an overseas mover. You will be required to show some important paperwork to customs before your items will be approved for entry. This paperwork may include some of the following:
Paperwork for Household Goods
- Inventory of Items
- Residence Visa
- Bill of Lading
Most people won’t have a need for a personal car while living in Belize as shopping is close to housing communities and public transportation can be found easily at affordable rates. Some however, may want to travel more than others and depending on the location of your home, a personal car may be ideal to import.
Paperwork Necessary for Vehicle Imports
- Photo Identification
- Title and Insurance Proof
- Bill of Lading
- Original Sales Invoice
- VIN paperwork to show car ownership
