Belize Is Among the Top 20 Best Places to Live, Says Real Estate Trend Alert

by Khaila Gentle

What makes Belize such a desirable place to live for those thinking of moving overseas? According to Ronan McMahon, editor of Real Estate Trend Alert, potential for short term rental income, idyllic settings, and capital gains are at the center of Belize’s appeal. The real estate investor and scout recently compiled a list of the top 20 best places in the world for investment. Sitting at number 10 is Belize’s very own Placencia peninsula.

The list, says McMahon is the culmination of a year-long research and travel project. Destinations were chosen for their “strongest potential for profit and lifestyle benefits through real estate in the next 12 to 18 months”. Other featured locations include Algarve, Portugal; Los Cabos, Mexico; Panama City, Panama; and Italy’s historic cities: Rome, Florence, and Venice.

Belize’s Placencia Peninsula exudes a unique island charm that has enticed locals and tourists alike for decades. Known for being the home of the country’s most pristine stretches of powder sand beaches, it’s easy to see why. This 19 mile long sliver of land sits flanked by the Caribbean sea and the tranquil Placencia Lagoon. Surrounded by shimmering blues and verdant greens, it offers the feel of island life minus the isolation. That way, when island fever strikes, you can simply opt for venturing north (or south) to explore the rest of what Belize has to offer.
