Belize is still one of the world’s most underpopulated countries, so people thinking of retiring here have the rare luxury of choosing the type of geography and community that suits them best. Whether you’re looking to live in a retirement community, out on your own ranch with perhaps a few horses, on a sandy beach along the Caribbean Coast or one of our many cayes, the lifestyle choices are almost endless.
So once again, retirement in Belize may not be for everyone, but it certainly is for us. We find it’s easy to stay active and healthy, and it’s affordable enough that we enjoy a great quality of life without the stresses we had up north, but it’s close enough that we have plenty of visits from friends and family. Add in my freezer full of fish and our garden full of fruit and vegies, and you’re looking at a couple of very happy Belize retirees.
