Buying Property in Belize & Living Among the Belizeans

Whether you buy property in Belize to enjoy as your little piece of paradise, or use it as an investment option, living among the Belizeans is a beautiful uplifting experience.

Different from the American or other cultures, Belize is not so much a melting pot of cultures as it is a salad where each element lends a certain flavor to the mix!

Belizians are proud of their culture and it shows in the way they interact with others in a mild unspoken way. When you visit Belize to view investment properties or to buy property in Belize for yourself to reside, you will see a mix of Creole, Garifuna, Mestizo and Maya who live united as Belizians.

During my last visit to Belize I was intrigued by the mix of people and realized it was hard to tell exactly what a Belizian is supposed to look like making it difficult to descriminate and providing me with a very welcoming experience.

When you buy property or investment real estate in Belize you will notice that this little Caribbean Island located in Central America is different from other caribbean islands.  Belize has a British heritage rather than a Spanish one which means when you buy property in Belize you won't have a language barrier because English is the official language.  

And with an increasing influx of Spanish speakers you will be able to practice your Spanish or easily reside in Belize if you are a speaker of the Spanish language.

Belize's beautiful mix of cultures and influx of newcomers make this Central American Caribbean Island paradise a great opportunity to buy property and live amongst a peaceful all encompassing community.

The Beauty of Living in Belize

Living in Belize, Central America is a magical experience.  Two key things contribute to its beauty: the people and the weather!  Both are important if your final goal is to purchase a home in Belize or invest in real estate. 

Let's take a look at what you'll want to know about Belizian people first and then a snapshot of the year round weather.

Belize is home to about 310,000 people and is considered one of the most diverse places in the world- culturally, ethnically and linguistically.

The Mestizos - a mix of Maya and European of mostly Spanish blood- make up 40% of the Belize population.  They are a mild mannered laid back people who are delightful to talk and interact with.

The second largest population - the Creole - descended from the mix of early British setlers and African slaves brought from Jamaica.  Spanglish, a mix of English and Spanish is spoken by the Creole.

In addition, there are the Black Carib, also known as the Garinagu, who are a cultural and racial mix of Carib Indians and African slaves who arrived in Belize early in the 19th century.

East Indians, Chinese, Lebanese and Mennonites also comprise the Belize population.

Given the diverse ethnic mix it is important to note there is very little racial tension in this beautiful country. 

The weather is also an important factor that contributes the beauty of living in Belize.  With a subtropical climate and only two seasons, it's easy to enjoy all this country has to offer.

June to January is the rainy season while February to May is the dry season.  While many people visit Belize during the winter months in the Northern climates, divers enjoy visiting during the Spring when the water is clearer and perfect for diving!

The temperatures can range from 55 to 96 degrees farenheit depending upon the time of year and day.  Inland areas can be hotter while mountainous spots can be cooler.
