Recently, Forbes ranked Belize one of the top three places to retire or move to post-pandemic. Why? Firstly, the fact that the country is English-speaking and in the CARICOM are big pulls. Not to mention, the flight times from major US cities are relatively short; we haven’t even started to cover the abundance of natural beauty within the country. You can choose to live amongst the lush rainforest or beachside with views of the Caribbean Sea.
