Regardless of this interesting side adventure, the overall the location in Corozal just didn’t speak to us. So, when we finally ditched our rental car and made our way via puddle jumper to the island of Ambergris Caye, we had high hopes—but remained pretty skeptical—that it would somehow contain all the elements of a perfect retirement and investment location.
After a quick 20-minute plane ride (10 flights per day leave from Corozal as well as Belize City), we arrived on the island of Ambergris Caye, also known as “Isla Bonita” (yes, the same one from the Madonna song).
It was difficult to tell exactly what we were looking at, since the land was filled with trees, and the beachfront property wasn’t much of a “beach.” It was kind of a rock slab, with little actual sand.
Basically in the middle of nowhere, with potentially no electricity, on a piece of land that we couldn’t actually see through all the trees? We couldn’t even be certain where our property ended and the next plot began!
So we threw most of our fears aside and said…SUUURRREE. Why not? The process to purchase the piece of land was actually simple, and I’m still not sure if thats a good or bad thing. It took us all of about fifteen minutes to fill out the paperwork with electronic signatures on our iPad.
