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

to discuss this with your local or offshore banker or your real
estate advisor if you plan on purchasing a home in Belize. To learn
