According to the Washington Post, believe it or not, there are 78 million baby boomers in the US with an estimated combined 7 trillion dollars in savings that they intend to spend in the next few years — that’s 70% of the total net worth of all households in the US! A large percentage are looking to invest in a vacation home or investment property in the Caribbean: places like Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama… and Belize is at the top of their list. Do you know why?
Belize is English Speaking
Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America; Belize is British-Commonwealth just like Canada, and English is the official language. People who invest in a vacation home or retire outside of North America don’t want to move to a country where they have to learn a new language just to go grocery shopping.
Another advantage for Belize is its proximity to the States. People are choosing Belize because of its location. They want to easily come and go to their new home, even at a moment’s notice, and with Belize only 2 hours from the US they can easily accomplish this. They want their friends and family to conveniently visit and with such a short trip they find it easy to share their slice of paradise with their loved ones.
- Belize is home to the world’s largest living reef – and second longest to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
- Belize has only 300,000 people – 35 people per square mile and as a result the rain forests, rivers, and reef are pristine.
- Belize is world-renowned for its excellent property, privacy, and banking rights
