Buying a home in Belize - 4 of the most popular places

Belize may be a small country, but it has a lot going for it. Known for its friendly locals, delicious cuisine and impeccable scenery, it’s a charming place to live. However, like all places, some areas are more popular than others.

Here, we’ll look at some of the most popular locations to invest in Belize real estate.

Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker Belize cannot be beat for its relaxing, laid back attitude. There are zero cars on the island, giving it a remote and peaceful setting. Many of the properties to buy are situated on the beach or waterfront, providing majestic views over the ocean.

The nearby barrier reef attracts snorkelers from all over the world. The locals make their living from the sea, catching and serving up the freshest seafood. The streets are made from compacted sand and fewer than 2000 people live on the island.

If you are looking for a slower pace of life in a beautiful setting, Caye Caulker is the area for you. The cost of Caye Caulker Belize real estate is surprisingly affordable.


Corozal is a large yet sleepy town in north Belize. It dates back to early Mayan times and evidence of this is left behind in the Santa Rita and Cerros ruins.

The area has become popular with expats, largely thanks to its beautiful crystal-clear bay and proximity to Mexico. The nearby Chetumal city on Mexico’s border, provides many American Franchises which Belize doesn’t have. So, it is a great area for those looking to enjoy island living while still being able to enjoy the old comforts of home every now and then.


If you enjoy an active lifestyle, consider the former fishing village of Plancencia. Cave tubing is popular in this area, and Mayan ruins offer prime spots for hiking. The Placencia lagoon is the perfect place to kayak, as well as see wildlife like crocodiles and birds. On the other side of the village, a pedestrian-only sidewalk that runs a mile along the shore allows for incredible views of the beach front. If you want to catch a glimpse of marine life, take advantage of activities like snorkeling and diving in Gladden Spit and Silke Caye Marina Reserve.

It’s easy to get around this area on foot, and many residents also bike to and from the shopping district. There are plenty of delicious restaurants and cafes to enjoy, as well as nightlife options near the beach.

Real estate in this area is in high demand. It’s the perfect place for a vacation home or to live year round!

Ambergris Caye

Many US and Canadian expats can be found living in Ambergris Caye. Known for its white sands and beautiful turquoise waters, the area is perfect for snorkelers, divers and fishermen. It boasts breathtaking scenery and has surprisingly lively beach bars where the locals gather.

Due to its pristine location, real estate in this area is more expensive. However, those who can afford it will find the scenery alone is worth the cost.
