The Best Place to Retire in Belize
Thousands of years ago, the country known as Belize was home to indigenous people calling themselves the Maya, a thriving civilization who built great communities, temples and made miraculous strides in art, science and mathematics. But all of this intelligence did not delay the life spans of men and women lucky to live to 60.
Retirement? There was no such thing. But death was celebrated within a society practicing several forms of ancestor worship and just because family members were gone, they were not forgotten. The proof of this are the many ancient sites in Belize dedicated to departed souls, especially those in the vicinity of Ambergris Caye.
Ambergris Caye: Everything in one place
Tourism officials may not agree on the reason Ambergris Caye became the vacation hub of Belize, but its popularity, due to its beauty, resources, and proximity to the nation’s most treasured natural resources, make it the ideal destination. The island grew exponentially as a result of its popularity and Ambergris Caye’s real estate market exploded. This 25-mile-long sliver of land brought celebrities, investors and ultimately, retirees.
For investors familiar with the Belize real estate market, it’s no secret that land value has skyrocketed. U.S. developers eager to build on Ambergris Caye were scared away by escalating prices. That came to a halt when Salt Life Belize, a community that is being developed along a lush 50-acre parcel was negotiated and bought by a former U.S. developer who left Missouri 30 years ago and never looked back.
Salt Life Belize: a retiree’s dream
The Salt Life Belize development team has overcome myriad hurdles to launch a community that has no equal on the island or elsewhere in the nation. Retirees are guaranteed elegant architectural design in concert with state-of-the-art infrastructure, so carefree living is literally built into every condominium and townhome.
What attracts retirees beyond quality construction? Salt Life Belize is a community, not a subdivision. Once built out completely, it will include a beach club, tour outlets, activity centers, restaurants, and bars. For retirees, this means immediate connections with residents already occupying their units, and all of them look forward to new neighbors eager to share their retirement dreams.
Retirees invited to visit paradise
Sales Director Scott Fusion loves showing off Salt Life Belize. “I act like a proud parent every time I show a potential investor or retiree around,” he says. “There is no equivalent real estate value on Ambergris Caye, and I see it on the faces of visitors whose expectations were far exceeded by the time they leave following a visit.”
“Not only are condos and townhomes built to exacting standards, but proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, mountains, rainforests, and jungles offer unlimited opportunities to see Mother Nature’s handiwork. Weather is idyllic, taxes are low and retirees find a ready-built community of like-minded people from the get-go. Retirees can go home for a visit in a few hours. This means a lot to our homeowners,” Fusion added.
Limited numbers of homes remain available for investors and retirees, but interest in Salt Life Belize has increased in direct proportion to the number of citizens reaching retirement age.
