The idea of retiring to some exotic location does not have to be a daydream. It is possible to enjoy a happy retirement in somewhere as beautiful as Belize. Read on to learn about the top reasons why you should consider retiring in Belize.

It's Affordable

Retiring in Belize is a great option because your money can go further. You can easily support yourself off of your retirement checks and any investment income. You will also find many services are more affordable in Belize than in other places around the world so you’ll spend less on services like cable television, health insurance, produce, property taxes, cleaning services and even medical care.

Life is Exciting in Belize

You’ve worked hard all of your life to earn your retirement, so why not spend your golden years in paradise that offers so many things to do and to see.

You can explore the thousands of species of animals, birds, fish, butterflies, trees and flowers that flourish on the small island. If you are an adventurer, you can canoe or paddle down the various rivers in the country. You can even go scuba diving, caving or mountaineering.

You can also immerse yourself in Belize culture by enjoying the many cultural events and festivals that occur throughout the year. Of course, if the idea of lounging on the beach is more your style, you will be in heaven on the extraordinary beaches of Belize.

 A Fresh Start

One of the things that retirees most look forward to when they retire in exotic locations is the opportunity to reinvent themselves. By retiring to a country such as Belize where English is the main language, retirees can feel inspired to take on new hobbies or even return to interesting part-time work in fields that may have felt unattainable or perhaps frivolous to them in the past.

These are some of the most common reasons for retiring in Belize but you will find so many more reasons why it’s attainable and extraordinarily desirable when you begin to learn more about the country and its people.

In 1996, Michael K. Cobb and his business partner formed a company, Exotic Caye International, to provide loans to North Americans purchasing properties in Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, and throughout the region. With a strong focus on consumer need, Mr. Cobb accurately predicted the growing demand for high quality, residential product for North American "baby boomer" retirees in the region. He led the group into real estate development and created a holding company called ECI Development for several properties, including a resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Michael speaks at dozens of international conferences annually about offshore real estate finance, development, and ownership. He was a consultant to The Oxford Club, hosted a weekly radio program, contributes regularly to overseas publications, sits on the board of several international companies, gives counsel to various real estate projects throughout Central America, and serves on the Board of Directors and the President’s Advisory Group for the National Association of Realtors, NAR.
