Retire to Belize
Retire to Belize
With today's economy many people may be wondering if they can afford to ever retire. According to http://www.belizeretire.com./ you can retire to Belize for $450 per person per month.
Belize is located in Central America just south of Mexico. Belize was formerly a British colony and has gained its independence (sound familiar), consequently it is an English speaking country. Belize is about the size of Massachusetts and has year round high temperatures in the 80's.
While Belize is a third world country, it still has pretty good health care due to the fact that it was a British colony until the 1980's. There is also daily mail service to the U.S. and U.K. You can live in Belize and be a citizen of Belize but still keep your U.S. citizenship.
There was a recent story about an elderly woman whose husband had passed away. He had left them deeply in debt and it took all of her savings to pay his bills. All she had left was $750 per month in Social Security. She decided to move to Belize. She rented a house just a few blocks from the beach, hired a maid, gets a weekly massage and dines out whenever she wants...all on $750 per month.
I don't know how true this story is, but if you are thinking of retiring and are strapped for money, Belize may be a place to consider.
