Hearing the capital city be classed as an “underrated” destination isn’t something you’ll often hear, yet it’s a given in Belize. Centrally located and the answer for those fleeing crime, congestion, and cramped spaces, Belmopan is also one of the safest and most peaceful places to live in Belize. It’s a fairly young city at only 52 years established and a population of 20,000+ at last estimates, but most government businesses and embassies can be found within the city limits. Take it from a Belmopanese herself: this gem is filled with cozy cafes, quiet neighborhoods, and cheery residents — it’s likely the closest thing to suburbs that Belize has. So when trusted realtor Vista Real Estate dropped the price on two move-in-ready Belmopan homes, savoring suburban life in the tropics became that much easier.
Recently remodeled, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom beauty holds a wealth of potential with its excellent location and spacious residence. On pineapple street, the fully-fenced 50ft x 80ft property covers 1,500 sq. ft. of clean comfortable open living with its open living room, kitchen, and dining area. Garages aren’t a common occurrence in Belize; instead, you’ll find covered carports, as found with this property, while the double pane sound reduction windows are a treat.

It’s a 5-minute walk to green space Mae Gordon park and another 15 to the University of Belize; two primary schools flank its street’s perimeter, with a medical lab one block over. Another benefit of tiny but mighty Belmopan: almost everything you need is within walking distance! This home sits at a reduced price of US$175,000.
Found inside an up-and-coming neighborhood, this 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom corner home has serious curb appeal. Tiled driveways lead you past the fenced property’s electric gate into the home, complete with a large living area, recessed ceilings, and in-lighting. And though there are four bedrooms, the Master Suite includes a walk-in closet, air conditioning, and a ceiling fan, as well as an en suite bathroom. Meanwhile, the bathroom has a walk-in tub with a hot and cold shower and a single marble-topped vanity.

It’s on the corner of Victoria Peak & Ben’s Buff Streets, which means restaurants like CocoGardens, Chon Saan Palace, and the vegan Spice Life are all within walking distance, as are grocery stores and the central Ring Road.
Ultimately, the decision to move to Belize will depend on personal preferences and lifestyle choices. Being just an hour away from the coast and the international airport in Belize City, Belmopan is the bridge between a quiet suburban lifestyle while still staying in close proximity to every ‘token’ perk of the tropics (like say, the beach)! The need for more space and more privacy during the Coronavirus pandemic are two of the main reasons why city dwellers are choosing to move to the ‘burbs, even now. With a price adjustment lower and a trusted full-service local realtor like Vista Real Estate, it’s time to take a closer look at making your move to Belmopan, Belize.
