The Cost of Living in Belize

If you are someone who is used to prices in the U.S., Canada and Europe, retiring in Belize can be a real bargain.  Housing in Belize is generally a lot  less than comparable housing in the U.S., Canada or Europe.  Also hiring a housekeeper or a cook to help around the house is quite affordable, with a full-time housekeeper costing around US$15 - US$20 per day.  Utilities are relatively less expensive as well, about 25% less than in North America.  Belize's tropical climate significantly reduces expensive winter fuel bills and the sea breezes of Belize equate to less air conditioning.

 

If you learn to live as Belizeans do, such as buying produce locally, you can reduce your expenses even more.  A retired couple in living in Belize with US$2,000 per month can live in style.
