Discover Latin American Retirement Communities

Luxury resort and retirement communities in Belize, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico and Panama are not only for retirees. In fact, they're also ideal destinations for those who want to relocate and continue to work remotely from their new upscale Latin America communities.

Why choose to live in a Latin American community?

Have you long dreamed of living in a seaside home or condominium where the days are always sunny? And where you can play golf, go fishing or hike a wilderness trail anytime you want? And where the living costs are low, but the quality of local healthcare is high? And perhaps most importantly, where real estate prices are very affordable and tax breaks are offered to those who make the move? That dream is a reality in modern Latin American retirement and residential communities

What are the benefits of living in a Latin American community?

  • Belize. English is the official national language in Belize, where new resort and retirement communities have been built in recent years along the beautiful Caribbean oceanfront. Best of all for new residents age 45 and older, Belize does not tax any income from sources outside of the country. Exploring ancient Mayan temples and and sport fishing around the many offshore islands are popular year-round activities.
  • Costa Rica. In addition to being Central America's oldest democracy, Costa Rice has a thriving economy and a world-class healthcare system. Cell-phone and Internet connections are fast and reliable, which is especially appreciated by remote workers who don't pay local income taxes on their first $100,000 earned from foreign sources. Costa Rica's model national park system includes hiking trails along unspoiled Pacific beaches, through lush rain-forests and up to cool mountain peaks.
  • Ecuador. The South American nation of Ecuador is an emerging resort and retirement destination with a long Pacific Ocean coastline, plus mountains, jungles and the famous Galapagos Islands to explore. Significantly for many new residents, Ecuador offers the region's most affordable lifestyle, including low property taxes, food costs and healthcare expenses.
  • Mexico. Like the Riviera Maya on Mexico's Caribbean coast, the Los Cabos region on the country's Pacific oceanfront is home to luxurious resort and retirement communities. The year-round comfortable climate, generally low living costs, high-quality healthcare services and access to top-flight recreational amenities make the Mexican Pacific coast an attractive lifestyle destination for retirees and remote workers.
  • Panama. With wide beaches on the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, plus a famous canal through rain-forests and highlands in between, Panama features resort and retirement in a variety of locations. Healthcare is very good and affordable, while living costs are low, especially for utilities, food and the delicious locally grown coffee. Importantly for remote workers, Panama City is an international hub of cultural and business activities.

Compass Premier Realty Ambergris Caye

San Pedro, BLZ

Belize is as romantic and charming as it sounds. And, Ambergris Caye, is indeed the cream of the crop. The island is considered the #1 tourist and retirement destination in Belize and is one of the top retirement destinations in all of the Caribbean and Central America .

While Belize feels like that dreamy place you could never actually live, buying in Belize has never been more affordable, or more accessible.

The land title system in Belize is very similar to that of the UK, USA or Canada. There are no restrictions on foreign land ownership, and
there are plenty of English speaking lawyers ready to help you with your property purchase.

There is no capital gains tax, no inheritance tax, and property taxes are a fraction of what they are in Canada or USA.

Asset protection through creation of IBC (International Business Company) is very similar to the British Virgin Islands or The Bahamas. You may open an offshore bank account effectively protecting your assets from Tax Authorities and litigation.

And, Belize has an excellent retiree program. Under Belize’s Qualified Retired Persons program, buyers over 45 are eligible for tax benefits, including exemptions on retirement income. When moving to Belize, qualified retirees can import motor vehicles, boats, aircraft, and personal effects, duty free. For details visit www.belizeretirement.org or call 1 (832) 848-2812.
