“Is there a reason no Caribbean destinations are on your radar???? asked a reader I met recently. “Take a look at this photo [the one above]...Caribbean and on my radar,??? I replied.
But this Caribbean is different—it comes without the high price tag. Plus it’s the friendliest and quirkiest place I’ve visited.
Little Belize is my #1 Caribbean buy today—$159,000 buys you a casita in a community right on the water. For $164,000 you can buy a garden condo on an idyllic Caribbean island. The beaches are picture-perfect. The diving, world-class. In thick jungles, jaguar and scarlet macaw still live among hidden Mayan ruins.
But the people are Belize’s biggest draw. English-speaking Belize is a melting pot of descendants of pirates, slaves, and conquistadores.
Belize received its independence from Britain in 1981—and inherited the British legal system. They have no army. Why would they? This country has never been at war.
Belize might just be the perfect tropical paradise.
I first visited Belize over four years ago at the invitation of friend and real estate developer Phil Hahn. He wanted me to see his project…but most of all he wanted me to experience Belize.
Phil had a vision for a high-end community right on the water—with walkable streets, shops, restaurants, and activities on land and sea—which, today, is becoming a reality.
Phil has extended to Pathfinder readers the same invitation to visit Belize I received four years ago. He’s so confident that you will enjoy this country, he’s even willing to cover some of the cost of your visit—your three-day trip includes luxury beach accommodation, a tour of ancient Mayan ruins, even a pig roast on the beach…for just $299.
