Why Move to Belize?


Belize is a tropical paradise, small in size and population but big in heart and eager to expand its economy and population. One of the last unspoiled places on earth, it boasts mystical Mayan temples, pristine rainforests and a barrier reef. Palm trees sway in gentle ocean breezes. Sparkling cerulean waters invite swimming, boating and fishing.

Belize was part of British Honduras until achieving independence in 1981. As a result, there are many similarities to the commonwealth laws of English nations. The country is still considered a commonwealth of England. The laws in Belize are like the United Kingdom, United States of America and Canada - common law. The title system is freehold.

English is the official language of Belize, the main language used in government and education, as it is a former British colony - making retiring in Belize that much easier. The rest of Central and South America mostly speaks Spanish. Our shared language allows those from the USA or Canada to fit easily into Belize’s culture. Many retirees, vacationers and investors are finding the country an ideal and relaxed environment.
