As the only English speaking independent democracy in Central America, Belize already has built-in appeal for North Americans. When you add in the assurances of a stable government operating under British Common Law and featuring the same security of titled real estate like you would expect to find in the USA or Canada, Belize emerges as the obvious choice for retirement or as a second home. With a population of roughly 420,000 in 2022, and a currency (the Belizean dollar) pegged 2:1 to the US dollar, Belize is both full of opportunity and easy to adjust to. US currency is also widely accepted.

Pros and Cons to Living in Belize


Expats save money in Belize in a number of ways. You won’t need a car in many places in Belize—and if you do, definitely only one. Most expats get a bike or a golf cart and you save a lot of money based on what you spend in Canada —although gas is expensive, you use much less than in the Canada. Property taxes are extremely low here, under $100 for most people who own a home. To be able to live on a coast with these ridiculously low taxes is a huge understated savings. Most expats do their shopping at the vast array of farmer’s markets throughout the country, which is less expensive than produce in Canada or the U.S. Although imported foods are expensive, you learn to eat like a local, everything is fresh and made from scratch.

Belize is a very non-materialistic place and people do not spend money on items like they do in the Canada. You find you don’t need the stuff you left in the Canada. There isn’t much to buy here, it is one of the greatest lifestyle shifts that I have personally experienced. Fancy things look out of place here. Socializing is done at thatch-roof bars on the water, on the beach, at happy hour, or at the vast array of community festivals, and fundraising events that are part of life here.


Most expats enjoy not having to have health insurance and paying as they go for doctor visits which can cost between $25 to $50. In some places doctors even make house calls. Expats tend to find the dental care in Belize to be very satisfactory, and much cheaper than the U.S. For more extensive medical treatment, expats go across the border to Mexico, to Chetumal or Merida. However, there is a major hospital in Belize City. There are also 24/7 polyclinics in Ambergris Caye and Placencia, and in Ambergris Caye they are building a brand new clinic that will have more substantial services.


In the tourist and expat areas of Placencia and Ambergris Caye, you will find most expats feel safe, and crime is similar to most tourism areas in the world. Petty theft is an issue, and violent crime, while it happens occasionally, is statistically rare. There are no in-home security systems so most people take measures such as security bars or dogs to help them feel secure. It is smart to be vigilant about your safety and not take unnecessary risks. It is recommended that you join Facebook groups specific to the area of Belize you are interested in. Belize runs on Facebook and there is a great wealth of free information where you can ask questions to expats who live in each area and see if it will work for you.


Belize offers summer weather all year round, throughout the country. The tropical, sunny, weather is perfect. You get great breezes off the Caribbean Sea year round. So, you can leave those boots and pants behind.


Real estate is more expensive in Belize compared to other Central American countries. The infrastructure here requires expats to learn to adapt somewhat, many expats learn to rely on a backup cistern, solar power, or a generator if the occasional water and power outages are a bother. About twice a month, there will be planned or unplanned outages, depending on what area you live in, and these can be anywhere from an hour to a working day. Belize is not a manufacturing country, so there are import taxes that make most goods and imports expensive. Those that succeed in Belize find that adapting to what is here, and adopting a less “stuff-driven” life is actually a bonus.


Belize is a young country, so things like disability regulations, special needs diets, or emergency services are still not available everywhere. For those with serious medical conditions considering moving to Belize this could be a major concern, and should be taken into consideration. There is a substantial expat population in Belize where you can find a wealth of information to help you decide if it will meet your needs.


Bugs Ambergris Caye or Placencia. Yes, there are bugs, but you learn quickly how to live with it and what to do to avoid the annoyances of tropical bugs. For example, in the summer months, when it rains, you are going to have the mosquito happy hour between about 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. You figure out what repellents work for you and where to go/what to do to avoid them. There are times where there are jellyfish in the sea, but it is temporary, and you can always find another place to swim if one area is getting the current.


Belize is not known for its sophisticated policing or legal system. There is a low rate of conviction in Belize, and it can be frustrating working with the police if you are used to the advanced criminal justice system in the U.S.


An undersea adventure awaits you...

Facing the southern edge of Ambergris Caye, Hol Chan Marine Reserve is the oldest reserve in Belize. Its name translates to "Little Channel," in reference to a coral-filled gap in Belize's immense barrier reef. Encompassing 3 square miles, this densely populated aquatic zone is a sanctuary for stingrays, eels and sharks, among other creatures. The reserve is separated into four parts: the mangroves, the reef, the sea-grass beds and the most recently added Shark Ray Alley. Because of its diversity, the reserve has flourished as a hot spot for scuba divers and snorkelers. Recent travelers said Hol Chan Marine's crystal clear waters and abundant sea life make it a prime spot for snorkeling and diving.

Deep Sea Fishing

Perhaps you would prefer some DIY "fresh catch"?

Belize has a Caribbean coastline and Caribbean islands (cayes) where fishermen can find abundant opportunities for fly fishing and deep-sea fishing. Some of the best fishing in Belize is right off the coast of Ambergris Caye, the largest of the islands, and The Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize. You can catch sailfish and tuna on deep-sea fishing trips, and you're likely to see dolphins or sharks swimming near your boat. Other common catches include snapper, bonefish, wahoo, and grouper.

Belize Xunantunich

Explore the history of the ancient Mayans

Perched on the New River Lagoon in northern Belize, this sprawling 960-acre Mayan site stands masked in crocodile art. Lamanai means "submerged crocodile" in Yucatec Mayan, which should give you a good idea of what you'll encounter here: artifacts depicting representations of the reptile, plus crocodiles (and iguanas) crawling along the banks of the New River to catch some sunlight. Inhabited from about 1500 B.C. to A.D. 1700, Lamanai is the longest-occupied known Mayan site in the world. Its dense compound features three Mayan pyramids, the remains of a 16th-centruy Spanish Church and several noteworthy plazas and temples established during Pre-Classic Mayan rule. You won't want to skip climbing the High Temple, and you'll also want to visit the Mask Temple, which includes ancient artifacts linked to Mayan, Aztec and Olmec rulers. Just come prepared with sunscreen, light clothing and plenty of water.
