This small country in Central-America is famous for its beautiful environment and options for adventure. For many people, a holiday in paradise is as far as their adventure goes, but living in Belize is definitely possible and people who do never look back.
The country offers a diverse landscape and you can choose to live in different areas with different price tags. Inland housing is really cheap and while closer to the beach you pay a bit more it is generally still affordable and the really low property tax (as low as $25 a year) helps too. A lot of food is grown in the country and so local produce is cheap, which helps to keep the cost of living down.
In 2014, Belize’s largest island ‘Ambergris Caye’ made it to the top of Trip Advisor’s ‘best islands in the world’-list. You can also explore Mayan ruins in the country and visit world’s second largest barrier reef. About half of the country is covered in rainforest, of which the government protects 80%.
The lifestyle in Belize is laid back and unpretentious and immigrants who are looking for a change of pace often find exactly what they wanted in Belize.
