If retirement is on the horizon for you, then you might have already considered retiring in a gorgeous destination like Belize. Property in Belize is affordable, the location is ideal and just a short flight from the United States, the overall cost of living is low and the expatriate community is thriving.
Although the logistics and infrastructure are certainly important, equally as important is being able to picture yourself retired in Belize. Here are eight of the many ways that you can make the most of retirement in Belize.
1. Take an Adventure Tour
Just because you're retired, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy a dose of adventure. Guided tours depart from Ambergris Caye daily and help participants explore ancient Mayan ruins or see incredible cave systems.
2. Spend Mornings Walking on the Beach
One of the most popular ways to start the day in Belize is with a walk on the sandy, beautiful shoreline. Since the weather is warm virtually every day of the year, you can make a habit of stretching your legs first thing each day and enjoying the sound of the waves lapping the white sands of the beach.
3. Get Fit at the San Pedro Fitness Club
If you decide to retire in a wonderful community like the Grand Baymen, you will have access to incredible amenities just steps from your home. Retirement could give you more time to get fit through group classes or machines in the San Pedro Fitness Club.
4. Attend Exciting Annual Festivals
Retiring in Belize means the chance to attend a range of festivals held throughout the year. Top events include the San Pedro Carnival in February, the San Jose Succotz Fiesta in April, San Pedro Lobster Fest in June and St. George's Caye Day in September.
5. Explore the Local Culture
Although Belize offers all the comforts and amenities of home you could want, there is still lots of vibrant local culture to explore. From traditional cuisine to local music, Belize can be an exciting place to live.
6. Entertain New Friends in Your Condo
Choosing Grand Baymen as your retirement destination means the choice of condominiums with one, two, or three bedrooms.
These condos are spacious enough to entertain new friends, share meals together or just relax at home when family members come to visit.
7. Dine Out While Overlooking the Sea
Thanks to the low cost of living in Belize, even dining in an upscale restaurant can be cheaper than it is back home. This means you can splurge on great food on a regular basis.
At the Grand Baymen, two onsite eateries offer a range of traditional local and international cuisine for you to enjoy.
8. Take Up Fishing
Many retirees love that in Belize, fishing is a year-round activity. Whether you're a beginner or a serious angler, you'll love the chance to cast right from the pier or the shore as well as the opportunity to charter affordable fishing boats from the Ambergris Caye Resort Pier & Marina.
These eight exciting options are just a small portion of the ways that retirees make the most of their retirement in Belize.
