Overseas investors and retirement home seekers should not overlook Belize, a country that offers a great climate, low prices, developed infrastructure and Caribbean beach access. While less known than other tropical destinations, investors who venture off the well-traveled path can find great deals on beach homes for under $200,000. See the following article from International Living for more on this.
If you are looking for a Caribbean climate, an English-speaking population, and relatively low prices—the choices are few. But, there is one place that has all of these things—Belize.
Despite the advantages of Belize, few people outside of Central America or the Caribbean area know much about the country. It’s small—just slightly more than 300,000 residents—and rarely does anything occur in Belize that makes headlines around the world.
Near the Belize-Mexico border, the Corozal District is just south of Mexico’s famous Mayan Riviera. Corozal hasn’t gotten nearly as much attention as the Mayan Riviera, but today it’s attracting a growing number of people interested in a low cost of living, a laid-back tropical lifestyle, and real estate bargains.

As you might expect in a town that’s less than 10 miles from the Mexican border, Spanish is more widely spoken than in many other places along the coast. English, of course, is still the official language.
For a close-up look at the different communities in Corozal Town, you might want to stroll around its open-air market, where the residents and visitors mingle, at least when they’re not sailing, fishing, swimming, or visiting historic Mayan sites. While not a prime destination for divers, Chetumal Bay is great for fishing and sailing.
The shore in Corozal is more rugged than it is to the south and on most islands, and beaches aren’t quite as sandy. But the coast in Corozal is beautiful. Corozal is also attractive because of its easy access to the Mexican border town of Chetumal. About 30 minutes away, Chetumal has a major airport, several excellent restaurants, bargain retailers, and good medical facilities.
Not too many years ago, this area of Belize was barely known. Today, this part of the Corozal District is the destination for a growing number of expats eager to find a charming place to live at a very moderate cost.
You can buy home sites in a waterfront community here for less than $40,000…houses for less than $50,000…and beach houses for less than $160,000.
