What About Belize?

“You look out your window, past your gardener, who is busily pruning the lemon, cherry, and fig trees…amidst the splendor of gardenias, hibiscus, and hollyhocks.

“The sky is clear blue. The sea is a deeper blue, sparkling with sunlight.

“A gentle breeze comes drifting in from the ocean, clean and refreshing, as your maid brings you breakfast in bed.”

You may think this is from an old “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, ” but it’s not. It is how International Living magazine greeted me on a recent advertisement campaign.

If I told you this lifestyle was within the reach of many Americans who have invested well during their working years, would you believe it? Have you considered living overseas in retirement? Think about Belize – most people don’t even know where it is, yet it is an English speaking country in the Carribean within 5 hours flying time from Philadelphia.

Hint: You may remember this country by its former name – British Honduras.
