Belize is a wonderful place to live and retire – largely because it’s favorable for North Americans who want to invest in foreign real estate. Here’s a quick glance at what makes Belize attractive to investors:
“If you look on a map, you’ll see that Belize faces the Caribbean in roughly the same part of the world as the world-famous Mexican resort towns of Cancun and Tulum, so the geography is similar. However, you won’t see any of the big hotels in Belize you see in Mexico. What you will see is unspoiled jungle, stunning, transparent, light green and blue, calm, warm water with world-class snorkeling and scuba diving. There is very little industry, so most areas are pristine. There are several beautiful and navigable rivers to explore, some of which go through caves.”
“Although Costa Rica and Panama get all the publicity, Belize is renowned as one of the easiest countries in Central America for foreign buyers. There are no restrictions on noncitizens owning property, no capital gains taxes and low property taxes. The country operates as a member of the British Commonwealth, with English as the primary language, and the Belize currency is fixed 2 to 1 to the dollar, providing a measure of stability to the money market.”
“After decades of keeping a low profile, Belize is suddenly seeing the opening of standout upscale properties that put you close to the country’s diverse attractions, while still honoring the pristine environment and under-the-radar vibe.”
