Belize has been in the travel headlines countless times recently for everything from the upcoming end of the Maya Calendar on December 21, 2012 to the high-profile royal visit from Prince Harry earlier this month.
Now, US News: Money has included Belize in on a round-up list of the top places to retire in the world. The article published on March 19th includes 18 retirement havens where “an interesting, adventure-filled lifestyle is available for a better-than-reasonable cost.”
Author Kathleen Peddicord is the founder of the Live and Invest Overseas Publishing Group. She puts Belize as the number two place to retire in the Americas and notes it is a great place for ‘reiventing your life in retirement’.
Peddicord cites the popular island of Ambergris Caye as a great option, offering the best of the Caribbean at a discount. Her other suggestion is the Cayo district, which is growing in popularity with expats looking to retire. Peddicord recommends Cayo for “independent-minded pioneers” who want to do their own thing, away from crowds and large cities.
