“The sole Central American country with English as the official language, Belize offers retirees a warm, outdoor-oriented environment, including fishing and barrier reef diving. Cost of living is quite reasonable. Crime is not a problem outside Belize City. Quality healthcare can be an issue; retirees often return to the U.S.—a two-hour plane ride to Houston—for major medical needs.

“The politically stable country lures retirees with a Qualified Retired Persons program that offers permanent residency upon showing just $24,000 in annual income. Popular venues for retirees include Ambergris Caye, an island 35 miles northeast of Belize City, and Corozal, a mainland city on the Atlantic Ocean near Mexico.”
