Here's Your Live And Invest In Belize
Home Conference Kit

Congratulations on your purchase of the Live and Invest In Belize Home Conference Kit!

From the white-sand beaches of Ambergris Caye in the Caribbean to the long mainland coast (offshore which lies the second-longest barrier reef in the world) and the hilly rain forest interior, Belize serves up natural beauty in abundance. This country's islands, beaches, mountains, rivers, caves, and waterfalls make for some of the best adventure travel (snorkeling, diving, boating, fishing, hiking, river-rafting, mountain climbing, and spelunking) on earth. 

And that's only the start of the reasons why you should be taking a close look right now at this little English-speaking country. Belize is also one of the top (and, importantly, intentionally, under-the-radar) offshore, asset-protection, and tax havens in the world today.

On top of this, Belize offers a user-friendly foreign residency program (the QRP) that allows for what friends in the country refer to as "virtual residency." You can take advantage of the advantages of permanent Belize residency even if you're physically present in the country as little as four weeks per year.

The result, depending on your circumstances, can be a fully tax-free life.

Plus, Belize is affordable, welcoming, safe, and home to an interesting, eclectic, engaging, and friendly population that includes a well-established expatriate community of like-minded adventurer-retirees who would love to have you join them.

The advantages, appeals, and attractions of Belize are many. But is Belize a place you want to spend your time or your money?

Our goal with the Live and Invest in Belize Home Conference Kit is to provide you with all the information you need to make smart decisions, whether you're looking to live, invest, or retire in Belize. The high-quality information and contacts we'll introduce to you below should give you complete confidence as you explore all your options.

The audio clips below are part of the complete collection of recordings and presentations from our recent Live and Invest in Belize Conference. To fully enjoy the audio presentations, we recommend wearing headphones.

If you encounter any difficulties with any of the programs, we're standing by to help any way we can.

Welcome To Belize

One Of The World's Top Lifestyle, Investment, Offshore, And Retirement Havens

Belize is a safe, friendly, welcoming, unassuming little country where the English-speaking population values personal privacy, self-determination, and freedom.

Belize is also one of the easiest places in the world to establish foreign residency. You can maintain your residency status by spending as little as four weeks per year in the country. And, once resident, you can live tax-free (even if you're an American).

Belize is an entrepreneur's playground, a frontier of great potential. Belize is rain forest, reefs, rivers, and Mayan ruins. Belize is quintessential Caribbean—white sand, azure water, and swaying palms.

Below you'll find ten resources that will help give you introduction to both Belize and the idea of an overseas lifestyle in general. The first six resources are PDF reports that make up our Belize Starter Kit, while the four last ones are audio presentations from our recent Live and Invest in Belize Conference.

To access the information, simply click the download or play button for each component. When available, click the PDF button to access PowerPoint slides so that you can view the presentation along with the audio.

Your New Life In Belize

This Is One Of The World’s Cheapest Places To Retire Well

Belize is a beautiful, sunny, friendly country whose currency (the Belize dollar) is pegged 2:1 to the U.S. dollar (meaning Americans have no currency-exchange risk). Plus, Belize is a stable, peaceful nation where they speak English.

Belize's Qualified Retired Persons (QRP) program is perhaps more straightforward than nearly any other retiree residency program. You can be as young as 45 to qualify, and the associated red tape is remarkably controlled. You must provide an authenticated police record from your most recent place of residency; certified copies of your birth certificate and passport; a medical clearance certificate; and proof that you have a minimum income of US$2,000 monthly (US$24,000 annually) from outside Belize. This can be from any source. You can include your spouse and children up to the age of 18 in your application.

Once you've qualified for QRP status, you can import your car, boat, and household goods tax-free... and you pay no tax in Belize on any income generated outside the country.

In other words, through the QRP program, you could establish yourself as a resident of Belize and avail of the no-tax-in-Belize-on-foreign-earned-income benefit... while taking advantage of the foreign-earned-income exclusion in the United States to offset tax due Uncle Sam. Talk about tax-efficient.

Below you will find presentations from our chosen experts in nearly every aspect of establishing your life here. In addition to their presentations, each PowerPoint presentation includes contact information. We encourage you to get in touch with any of the experts should you have any questions, or to employ of their services.

Buying Property For Lifestyle Or Profit

From Caribbean Waters To Cool Rainforests, Belize Offers Plenty Of Property Diversity

Clear turquoise waters lapping gently against soft white sand. Palm trees rustling in the warm breeze. Yellow and orange fishing boats bobbing on the horizon. Birdsong and island tunes all around...

Ambergris Caye, Belize, is unadulterated, unpretentious Caribbean... the sea, sand, and sunshine of the Caymans or the Virgin Islands without the price tag.

San Pedro town, a former fishing village, is the center of activity and home to a growing expatriate community of North Americans and Europeans catered to now by dozens of restaurants, shops, art galleries, and community organizations. You could settle in here quickly and easily.

The real estate market, for both buying and renting, is developed, meaning you have many options at all price points. You can buy a condo for as little as US$100,000 or invest up to US$1 million or more, and you can rent for as little as US$600 to US$700 per month.

Life on Ambergris is relaxed and friendly, carefree and sunny. Adopt this island as your home, and you'd enjoy most all services and comforts you're used to, and you'd never want for like-minded company.

That's one face of Belize. Back on the mainland, life is very different.

Mainland Belize can be broken down into four zones: Belize City; the northern coast around Corozal; the southern coast around Placencia; and the interior Cayo.

Forget Belize City. This isn't a place you'd want to live. The city has a reputation for being poor, dirty, and unsafe for a reason. It is poor, dirty, and unsafe. But Belize City is not representative of Belize.

Following the highway from Belize City south (this is one of but three highways in the entire country!) you come to Dangriga, Hopkins, Placencia and then, way down south, Punta Gorda. This is perhaps the most culturally diverse part of the country, home to the Garifuna, black Carib Indians known for their pounding and sensual song and dance. It's really something to see, alone worth a visit to this region.

Following the coast north from Belize City brings you to Corozal, where life couldn't be more laid-back. This is a part of the world where you can still arrange a home of your own directly on the beach with nary a neighbor around... if that's what you're in the market for.

The fourth face of Belize is our favorite. Inland, in the rain forest, is the Cayo District, a land of mountains and Mayan ruins, rivers and waterfalls. This is Belize's frontier, a land where a man (or a woman) comes to stake a claim and make his own way. The wide-open spaces of Cayo appeal to the adventuresome and the independent. Living here, you'd enjoy lots of elbow room, far-reaching vistas, and a clean slate. You could start over and rebuild your life entirely.

You'd have a higher level of support than you might expect. I was surprised and delighted during my most recent visit to Cayo to find more shops and services than existed when I was in this part of the world last. I found my favorite haunts, including Eva's, the café and expat meeting spot in the heart of San Ignacio, Cayo's main town. Today, though, Eva's is hardly the only place for an expat to connect with his fellows.

Alas, development is coming to Cayo. I acknowledge this with melancholy exuberance. Cayo is one of my favorite places on earth. Now it's easier than ever to spend time here more comfortably than ever. I'm happy for this unsung region of this largely misunderstood country to begin to get a little recognition. At the same time, I can't help but want to keep Cayo secret.

Belize's Cayo District is one of the top choices worldwide for getting back to basics and going off-the-grid. The good news, as you’ll find out below, is that going off-the-grid today does not have to be as challenging nor the lifestyle as rugged as it was even 10 years ago. Today, here amidst Cayo's rain forest and rivers, you can live off-the-grid in style and good company. Life here could be incredibly affordable.

Below you will find presentations from our chosen experts in the field of real estate. In addition to their presentations, each PowerPoint presentation includes contact information. We encourage you to get in touch with any of the experts should you have any questions, or to employ of their services.
