Why Retire in Belize?

  • 2 years ago

With the country of Belize being rich in culture and having unspoiled beaches, pristine reefs and much more, it is no surprise that it has become the preferred resort enclave for tourists from all over the world.

In addition to the endless adventures, Belize has one of the finest retiree programs in the world which exempts qualified persons from paying taxes on all earned income or passively generated outside of Belize. Other benefits making the QRP Program known as one of the best in the world, include not having to pay customs or tax on imported items throughout their first year as a QRP resident, as well as being able to include their dependents in the program.

Prospective retirees should also consider Belize for many other reasons. Firstly, the predominant language is English. Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America bridging the gap with any language barriers. While the official language is English, many locals speak Spanish. In addition to the language, the conversion of US currency is not needed as it is accepted everywhere. Belize has a consistent $2 BZD to $1 USD exchange rate. Additionally, the weather is also mostly tropical, so individuals who enjoy outdoor adventures can take advantage of the great outdoors on just about any day. Another great feature for retirees is that there are no taxes on income earned outside the country which translates to a lower cost of living. The country is also relatively safe and within close proximity to the United States, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.

All these factors make for a very easy and enjoyable retirement in Belize. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you with the move and get you set up to start enjoying an amazing retirement in Belize.
