If Home is Where the Heart is, You’ll Leave Yours at Belize’s Cerros Sands Community  

by Larry Waight

Folks who have had their fill of stress, congestion, and inflation are adopting new post-COVID lifestyles. If you’re one of them, moving to a quieter, more peaceful place can feel more doable. But if you’ve looked abroad and concluded that too many barriers stand in your way when you factor in a long-distance move where language mastery is required and the cost of visits back home is prohibitive, you’re not looking in the right place. Achieve the idyllic lifestyle you would design were you asked to create a perfect place by considering Belize. It’s close to home, everyone speaks English, U.S. currency is welcomed, and your recreational cravings can be met without having to leave home. Get in on the ground floor by exploring the opportunities at Cerros Sands, Corozal’s premier planned community where even a small income gets you a big lifestyle.

“By the Sea”: More than just a catchy tune

Because Cerros Sands was engineered by North American planners who understand the importance of infrastructure and design features in a home, everything about this development meets the criteria you look for in a U.S. home. But unlike housing developments along the Atlantic, Pacific, and Caribbean, you won’t have to liquidate your financial holdings to afford waterfront living.

At Cerros Sands, beachfront and channel parcels are available at affordable prices: $89K USD gets you a slice of oceanfront, and $29K gives you a place on the channel where a private boat dock for access to the Caribbean Sea awaits. This remarkable new community is still in its growth stage, which is why pricing remains affordable, but once the major road and two bridges linking Corozal Town with Sarteneja are completed in the near future, that’s going to change.

A place to live. A place to thrive

In addition to owning a home that gives you waterfront access, the number of Internet service providers has increased exponentially so seamless communication prevails thanks also to two local cell service providers. Your access to this technology is assured, you can retire, launch a business, or telecommute seamlessly. Importantly, the Cerros Sands master plan is a study in sustainability, conservation, and off-grid living.
