There’s a growing demand for hotels and vacation rentals in the peaceful hidden gem that is Punta Gorda Town. One B&B listing by local realtor Vista Real Estate sits steps away from the Caribbean Sea, waiting for the right marketer and manager.

BlueBelize, an elegant boutique bed and breakfast nestled in an oasis of green and facing the Caribbean Sea, was highlighted by the UK Telegraph as one of Belize’s top 10 hotels in June 2019.
The property is comprised of two structures on a beautifully landscaped corner double lot that is perched atop the highest coastal land in Belize and overlooks the sea. The guesthouse conveys a light and airy atmosphere highlighted by stone walkways that lead to both structures and wooden stairs and walkways that link the two buildings.

Why Invest in Belize

The New York Stock Exchange set new records as January 2024 came to a promising end. Fears of inflation have dissipated to the point where Bloomberg’s editorial board has proclaimed: “The Federal Reserve’s Dilemma is a nice problem to have”! Even conservative investors are quietly celebrating this remarkable news, and if you’re one of them, you may be ready to consider assets that extend beyond the usual stocks, bonds, domestic real estate, and mutual funds.

Perhaps you’ve noticed an uptick in investors who are purchasing revenue-producing properties abroad. It’s become a trend, and no nation offers as many benefits as those found in the Belize real estate market for these reasons and more:

  • Belize gives expats the same rights of ownership as Belize citizens
  • There are no capital gains taxes in this easy-to-navigate nation
  • You can acquire beachfront property in Belize for very little money
  • Property taxes are so low, owners pay around $375 per annum for a $250,000 dwelling
  • Taxes in rural areas are what one investor called “ridiculously low.”
