Investment Property Options in Belize

Last week we discussed Nicaragua and, more specifically, Gran Pacifica Resort as an ideal landing pad for your Plan B and retirement dreams.

Nicaragua not quite your style? Then you may want to consider Belize!

I’ve got some exciting updates to share with you regarding the progress of a few real estate projects down there that could double as both solid investments and landing pads for you.

But first, let’s take a little refresher on why expats love Belize.

A Refresher on Belize

Investment Property Options in Belize

Ah, Belize. It’s been a popular destination among expats for years for good reason.

Perhaps the main reason Belize is so popular, aside from its warm climate and natural beauty, is that the official language is English. When you are looking at a Plan B or retirement destination, it’s definitely a plus that makes settling in much easier.

It’s pretty easy to get to Belize with direct flights available from many cities in both the United States and Canada. Yes, there are actually direct flights from Canada!

Known for its world-class scuba diving, ancient Mayan ruins, and eco-adventures, Belize is a fabulous destination for those seeking both relaxation and adventure.

It also has a well-established banking system known for the privacy it affords its clientele, making it an excellent option for your personal and business banking affairs.
