Belize has been attracting people across the globe to its shores for years now. Some are attracted by the warm climate and the picture perfect tropical beauty, while the relaxed pace of life is the key attraction for others. Living in Belize is what you make of it.

The Freedom of Choosing Your Own Lifestyle

Whether you are a fan of off the beaten track living and laid back beach lifestyle or an adventurous scuba diving and sports fishing lifestyle, Belize is an ideal choice. Here you are free to live life at your own pace. With its cayes, barrier reefs and beaches, Belize exudes natural beauty that is rejuvenating for sagging spirits.

Many Things to Explore

The wide variety of flora and fauna found here can take a lifetime to explore. Adventure lovers are sure to be delighted with unlimited boating, kayaking, fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving options. If you think that living in Belize is all about sun, sand and beaches, prepare to be surprised. The country has a lot more to offer apart from the stunning natural surroundings.

Sub-Tropical Weather

Belize is a picture perfect tropical retreat right from coconut trees to the warm climate. While the humidity is often high, it is not oppressive. It is felt most in the coastal areas. The cool sea breeze helps overcome the humidity. The average temperature is 79 degree Fahrenheit, ranging between 50 and 95 degree Fahrenheit. The rainfall in most regions is heavy. October and November are the peak rainy months.

Cultural Diversity

Although the permanent population of Belize is small, it is extremely diverse. While living in Belize you are likely to come across people from a wide variety of religions, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. The best thing about the country is that in spite of the differences, people blend in seamlessly and exist in harmony.

The culture in Belize is closer to the Caribbean than Central Americas. The local cuisine reflects cultural diversity with elements from the Caribbean, Mexico, the US and the UK. The staples include rice, beans and corn tortillas. Traditional exotic preparations include venison, fried gibnutt, green iguana and armadillo.

Ease of Owning Property

In Belize there are no restrictions over the ownership of land by foreigners. Unlike in most other countries, the process is simple and does not involve lengthy paperwork. You can either invest in raw land or a ready property. In both the cases, it is possible to acquire legal ownership. It is advisable to shop around before making an investment as the prices of properties vary significantly based on the location and the amenities.

Friendly People

Belizeans are inherently polite, peaceful and hospitable. They are known to be the friendliest people in the world. Unlike city dwellers, who prefer isolation, islanders go out of their way to make new comers feel welcome. The warm gestures and friendly smiles ensure that regardless of how far you are from home, you never feel alone while living in Belize.
