Why Belize?

Belize is a tropical gem on the Caribbean Sea where expats go to soak up the sun, find outdoor adventure, and buy low-cost homes in paradise. Unlike neighbors Mexico and Guatemala, many people in Belize speak English. With a population of only 400,000 and per capita GDP in the bottom 10% of nations, infrastructure is not Belize’s strong suit. Many choose to overlook such niceties to enjoy a simple, peaceful life. Belize does have a very high murder rate that primarily affects gang members in specific neighborhoods. Overall, Belize is an inviting, warm country that welcomes Americans with easy-to-acquire residency.
