Belize tourism and the Belize real estate opportunities

Why visit Belize and the Belize real estate market. Belize is an awesome travel location but you can also become a permanent tourist if you explore the local real estate market in Belize and buy a property there. 1st let’s discuss about a few attractions in Belize and we will end with some tips about becoming a permanent tourist by buying a property in Belize.

Just off the tip of the Yucatán Peninsula, laidback Ambergris Caye is the largest of Belize’s 200 cayes and a prime tourist destination. Off the coast, Hol Chan Marine Reserve is one of Belize’s most visited diving and snorkeling sites. It’s named after the Mayan for “little cut” and is one of seven reserves within the Belize Barrier Reef system, which is the second largest in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Top attractions in the reserve include a cut in the reef with steep coral walls; Cat’s Eye, a crescent-shaped sinkhole; and Shark Ray Alley where divers can enjoy close encounters with nurse sharks and southern stingrays. The island’s main town is the fishing village of San Pedro, a colorful jumble of clapboard houses, stray dogs, and clucking chickens, with cute cafés and hotels. Golf carts and bicycles are the most popular modes of transport, although these days an increasing number of cars and trucks zip along the sandy streets. The Ambergris Museum and Cultural Centre traces the island’s history from the ancient Mayan traders to the present day. Saltwater fly fishing enthusiasts come to Ambergris Caye to cast their lines for bonefish, tarpon, permit, snook, and barracuda.

The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the biggest, protected destinations in Belize. The reserve was founded in 1990 as the first wilderness sanctuary for the jaguar. Although roughly 60 of Belize’s 700 jaguars are believed to live in the sanctuary, your chances of seeing one are very slim. However, it’s an ideal environment for plant-spotting, bird viewing or seeking out other wildlife, and the trail system is the best developed in any of Belize’s protected areas.

Continuously excavated since the late 19th century, Xunantunich continues to reveal its secrets to archaeologists. In 2016, a team discovered the largest royal Maya tomb ever discovered, a ruler buried alongside hieroglyph-inscribed tablets that detail the long history of the mighty Snake Dynasty that once ruled southern Belize and parts of neighboring Guatemala. The name for the site is Mayan for “Stone Woman” as visitors have reported seeing a ghostly woman haunting the site for more than a century.

Belize attractions and climate makes purchasing a property here a sweet idea. Imagine living permanently there… the joy. As Ambergris Caye, San Pedro and Belize continue to grow at an unprecedented rate, as so the opportunities for Real Estate investment does as well.
