9 Reasons Why Belize is such a great place to Invest
1. ENGLISH IS THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE
As the only English-speaking country in Central America, all paperwork, documents and contracts are universally written to make things easier.
2. AFFORDABLE REAL ESTATE
The process is straightforward, which makes buying property in Belize uncomplicated. Not to mention, foreigners agree that purchasing real estate in Belize is cheaper compared to other parts of the world.
3. PROPERTY TAXES ARE EXTREMELY LOW
Besides being as low as 1% to 1.5%, Belize imposes no capital gains taxes and no income taxes from the property; therefore, your hard-earned investment is protected.
4. PROPERTY OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS
You will be sure to find something just for you – private islands and cayes, sea/beachfront view villas, riverfront condos, etc.
5. THE EFFORTLESS NATURAL BEAUTY
Belize is surrounded by blue seas, white sandy beaches, lush rainforest, and tropical weather making it the perfect destination for snorkeling trips, diving, fishing, and swimming. Belize also has many landscapes to offer, such as lush jungles, mountains and waterfalls, giving the country its unique identity.
6. STABLE CURRENCY
The currency conversion is 2 to 1; meaning 2BZD = 1USD. Most businesses in Belize accept US dollars interchangeably.
7. AN ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE NATION
Belize’s initiatives to protect and conserve its wildlife and marine ecosystems are impressive. After all, nearly half of the country’s landmass is under government protection, and Belize was hailed as the first country in the world to reject all offshore oil.
8. RICH CULTURAL CUISINE
Belize is a melting pot of culture. To be exact, there are seven different ethnicities in Belize: the Maya, Mestizo, Garifuna, Creole, Chinese, East Indian, and Mennonites. Each incorporates their exotic touch to local dishes for an end result that’s bursting with flavors to entice your taste buds. There’s so much to learn from each culture.
9. FLIGHT DURATION
Airlines have made Belize a common travel destination, given the convenient close proximity to North America. Being 2 short hours away from Miami and less than 3 hours from Houston, Belize also shares US time zones.
