Living in Belize

Moving to Belize

  How can I move to Belize?

Wondering if you can make the move to Belize. Your not alone. Many other Americans, Canadians and Europeans are seriously considering making the move to Belize for a number of reasons. First, Belize is an amazing country with a unique culture and a fabulous climate. Second, the average cost of living in Belize is well below that of North America. Third, Belize is only a short flight from home and is a great place to retire. These reasons will be expanded upon in the article below.

Belize life is calm and peaceful, at least in comparison to the hustle and bustle of North America and Europe. Belize is a country of less than 300,000 people, a very small country by world standards. However, the country is more than 9,000 square miles in size. A small population with a relatively large area makes for some very beautiful and untapped natural habitat. This includes some of the world’s most beautiful coastal beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and the Maya mountains in the countries southern region. As well, the Belize coast is lined with coral and actually is home to the world’s second largest reef, the Belize barrier reef (Second only to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef). This reef makes for some of the greatest deep see diving and snorkelling in the world, and is a far cry from snorkelling the Texas coast. The Belize climate is subtropical with warm temperatures and moderate Belize annual rainfall.

Secondly, the average cost of living in Belize is much lower than the averages living costs in many other countries. This is one of the primary factors that makes moving to Belize such a great option, especially for retirees. Imagine, you’ve earned all your life in American dollars and now you can enjoy that financial nest egg you’ve built up in a country where your dollars can figuratively stretch for miles. You should consult with your financial advisor or accountant to discuss your own personal situation. You may also wish to discuss this with your local or offshore banker or your real estate advisor if you plan on purchasing a home in Belize.

A third reason to considering living in Belize is Belize is only a short flight from the continental US and Canada making return visits home easy and affordable. As well, Belize is only approximately a four to five hour drive to Cancun, Mexico. Cancun is a major hub for international air activities. All things considered, Belize may be the perfect spot to hang up your hat in the near future.
