Good News For Belize
While Mexico remains mired in a violent drug crime stand-off, the Caribbean country of Belize has remained stable and peaceful. And in today’s world of war, violence, natural disasters and social strife, this is good news for Belize. Keep reading to find out why Belize should be among your top picks for vacation, lifestyle, retirement and investment.
Belize is an ‘Anomaly’
Belize has always been somewhat of an anomaly in Central America. For starters, Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America. The lack of a language barrier makes Belize easy for North Americans to adapt, to live, and to do business successfully.
Belize was originally a British colony, has no history of internal strife or war, is rarely affected by hurricanes, and offers a warm tropical climate amid crystal clear Caribbean waters.
No Island Fever!
Belize delivers the much sought-after Caribbean lifestyle without the hassle and confinement of living on an island. Goods and services are relatively easy to come by in Belize due to close proximity to Mexico and Guatemala.
Cost of Living
The cost of living in Belize is reasonable, and the style of living is eccentric and healthy. Belize is sparsely populated compared to neighbouring Mexico and Guatemala which makes for a more pristine and natural environmental setting.
Something For Everyone
The combination and timing for Belize spells opportunity for the adventure seeking expat, sun-seeking retiree, and entrepreneurs looking for unique business opportunities.
For the avid beachcomber or water sport enthusiast, Belize offers an incredible array of islands, coves, bays, coral and beaches. For the land lover, Belize is a diverse combination of jungles, waterfalls, lagoons, and rivers.
For the prospective business person or entrepreneur, Belize is relatively undeveloped, and under-represented as a location for global tourism. Belize also exhibits “emerging market” characteristics which opens a host of opportunities for new businesses. Belize has a long established offshore banking system that helps provide financial and economical stability to this otherwise agrarian economy.
For the retiree, Belize offers a laid back tropical environment with healthy food, affordable real estate, and close proximity to North America.
Flights from the U.S. are relatively short and affordable, yet Belize often goes unnoticed among the international travel and emerging market investment community.
