Belize is a beautiful friendly and extremely safe country in Central America, on the Caribbean coast. It shares the same time zone as central US (Mountain time). The primary language in Belize is English, which is perfect if you are just visiting on vacation or thinking of relocating.
At times, the pristine beaches or jungle may seem remote. However Belize is very connected to the modern world: There is good infrastructure in the financial sector, professional services, telecommunications. Wifi is freely available for staying connected to friends and family, or even working remotely in paradise. Belize is a member of the Commonwealth.
If you are 45 or older, Belize offers one of the world’s most attractive retirement incentives: the Qualified Retired Person program includes tax free income on all earnings from sources outside of Belize. To qualify you only need to show proof of pension or other monthly income of $2,000 or more and you must live in Belize at least one month out of the year.
