February 20, 2016 - CNN Money Names Belize One of the Best Places to Retire Abroad in 2016


Are you like one of the many people who call our Belize law office interested in reinventing your life?

Our friendly staff is happy to provide you with a whole bunch of reasons to consider retiring in Belize.  But you don't have to take our word for it: Huffington Post, Forbes, the AARP, and U.S. News & World Report are a few of the authoritative publications who have named Belize one of the best places to retire in the world.  Now CNN Money has joined the chorus.

Belize is a sunny country that's easily accessible from most points in the Western Hemisphere.  Expats enjoy exploring Mayan archaeological sites, caves, waterfalls and forests.  Retirees have many options as far as where they will live - read more about the best places to retire in Belize.

If you’ve followed this blog, you know by now many of the other reasons that makes Belize one of the best places in the world to retire:

  • English has deep roots in the country and is the official language
  • The fixed exchange rate (two dollars Belizean currency equals one dollar U.S. currency) means you won’t have to rely on a calculator or worry about getting a fair price.
  • The political system is democratic, and the justice system is based on a British rule of law
  • Inexpensive real estate for your retirement home, vacation home or investment property
  • Low property taxes, no capital gains or inheritance taxes
  • A less stressful, less rushed pace to life

And perhaps the best point of all: Belize really wants you. You’ll be able to stay as long as you want, apply for permanent residency and eventually citizenship, and take advantage of offshore investment opportunities and programs - like the Belize Qualified Retirement Program (QRP) - that are specifically designed to lure foreigners to Belize and entice them to stay.
