You must see Belize at least once and the Belize real estate opportunities. Belize is an incredible travel location but you can also become a permanent tourist if you explore the local real estate market in Belize and purchase a property here. First let’s talk about a few attractions in Belize and we will finish with some tips about becoming a permanent tourist by buying a property in Belize.
On the Vaca Plateau, 152 meters above sea level, Caracol is the largest archaeological site in Belize. The ruins of this Mayan city are tucked deep in the jungles of the Chiquibul National Park, near the Guatemalan border. It’s interesting to note that Caracol was once larger than Belize City and supported twice its population. The warriors of Caracol were known for their military victories, defeating both the powerful cities of Tikal and Naranjo. Today, visitors can see the carved altar stone depicting these victories. Another interesting feature is the 43-meter-high Caana (Sky Palace) pyramid, Caracol’s tallest structure. It’s also the tallest human-made structure in all of Belize and offers breathtaking vistas of the site and surrounding jungle from the top. Although Caracol was abandoned by its human inhabitants centuries ago, the ruins are teeming with wildlife. Cats, howler monkeys, and many birds are found in the forest here, and toucans often inhabit the pyramids. Beyond Caracol, a series of limestone karst caves are believed to be the largest of their kind in the Western Hemisphere.
Sitting high on the Vaca Plateau, 500 meters (1650 ft) above sea level, Caracol is the largest Maya site in Belize. It was once one of the largest ancient Maya cities, covering some 168 square kilometers (65 mi²). At its peak around 650 AD it had an estimated population of about 150,000, more than twice as many people as Belize City has today. The largest pyramid in Caracol is Canaa (Sky Place), at 43 meters (143 ft) it is still the tallest man-made structure in all of Belize.
A 16-mile-long stretch of golden sands in southeastern Belize, the Placencia Peninsula is rapidly becoming the eco-tourism capital of Belize where golf carts and bicycles are the principal form of travel. The eastern side of the peninsula fronts the gorgeous Caribbean Sea while the western side forms a mangrove-lined lagoon brimming with fish and other species. Whether you’re using Placencia as a jumping off point to popular destinations on the Belize Barrier Reef or simply as a great place to relax, the Placencia Peninsula is definitely a must see destination.
Belize attractions and climate makes purchasing a house here a sweet project. Imagine living permanently there… the joy. Many people often ask us why the Platinum Coast (West Coast) & Secret Beach is just beginning to undergo rapid development given its beautiful beaches and sunset views and the story goes back to when the island was first developed. As many of you already know, in a tourism destination the most coveted coast is almost always the West Coast because of the amazing sunsets. The island of Ambergris Caye was however originally developed on the East Coast to accommodate the reef and the fisherman who wanted to get out first thing in the morning to fish. The East coast of Ambergris Caye has been developed leaving the west coast to be forgotten, until now. See extra info on Mahogany Bay Belize.
