Unlike various other countries, buying property in Belize is fairly straightforward, and there are no restrictions on foreigners buying or owning property. Property in this small country is a lot cheaper than in other central American or Caribbean countries, and foreign investors are protected in real estate transactions by the country’s government. But it isn’t just the affordable property that attracts people to Belize; the country has a pleasant year round climate, along with the opportunity for hiking, bird watching and jungle adventures, as well as water sports of all kinds along its coast. Scuba diving is especially popular and Belize is home to the world’s second longest coral reef. English is the country’s official language, and the healthcare system is thriving. Belize is also safe when compared to other nearby countries, is known for its welcoming people and has a currency that’s linked to the US dollar.
