The Four Corners Of Belize

Expat Community - Las Islas Bonitas

The Cayes – La Islas Bonitas

Belize’s most developed Caribbean island is Ambergris Caye. Our top choice there is Grand Baymen.

The Grand Baymen expat community consists of the Baymen Gardens Development on four acres, San Pedro Fitness Club on the adjoining two acres, and 175 yards due east is Exotic Caye Beach Resort giving you beach access.

You can go here to learn more about Grand Baymen.

Expat Community - Corozal

Corozal – Peace & Seclusion

In Corozal you’ll find yourself secluded and free to live at peace between Mayan ruins and the Caribbean tide. Our top choice in Corozal is Orchid Bay.

The Orchid Bay expat community boasts over 4,000 feet of uninterrupted frontage on the Caribbean waters of Chetumal Bay and will be home to under 500 private residences ranging from seaside Casitas and condominiums to half-acre estates.

Expat Community - Cayo District

The Cayo District – Back To The Basics

The appeal in the Cayo district of Belize isn’t sand and sea but wide-open spaces, a back-to-basics lifestyle, and really cheap, sustainable land. The best opportunity in the Cayo is Carmelita Gardens.

The Carmelita Gardens property is 450 acres, with more than a mile of riverfront and a spectacular view of the Maya Mountains. It is within this pastoral setting that Phil Hahn, with seven years of experience developing land and doing business in Belize, is laying out his “New Ruralist” community.

Expat Community - Placencia

Placencia – Caribbean Retreat

Placencia is today a bona-fide beach town. In and around Placencia are condo beach developments, lobster shacks, souvenir huts, waterfront bars, karaoke bars, dive shops, and boat launches. Our top choice in Placencia is Sanctuary Belize.

Sanctuary Belize is a 14,000-acre property, of which fewer than 3,000 acres will be developed. The rest–jungle and rain forest–will be held aside as a preserve. The developed land will be consolidated along the ocean and river boundaries. Amenities include equestrian, dockside, marina, large and private estate lots, even airfield lots if you’d like to access your Belize beach getaway by private or chartered plane.
