Where is Ambergris Caye, Belize? Why Is It's Location Important to Real Estate Investors?

Ambergris Caye is basically at the southern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. It sits inside the second longest barrier reef in the world which stretches from Mexico down to Honduras.

The reason Ambergris Caye is becoming the new hotspot for those looking for their own place in the sun is in part due to its prime location and proximity to the U.S. and Canada.

Belize is very close to North America. You can wake up in almost any state or province in the U.S. and Canada and be down here eating fresh seafood overlooking the Caribbean Sea by the time the sunsets. Most of my clients find this is very important to them when considering which part of the world to buy and invest in.

It's close location means it also very attractive for those looking to relocate to a tropical location. Most of my clients plan to spend 3-9 months a year here but they also have family and friends and in many cases houses back up north. So its very easy to hop on a plane and make quick or long trips back home whenever the need arises.

In a recent poll I asked my clients why they were looking at Belize compared to other countries. By far the most common answer was "Belize is so close to the U.S. and Canada and that is important to me".

Ambergris Caye is the largest island belonging to Belize. It's where most of the tourism and growth is taking place. One trip here and you'll realize why Ambergris Caye is called "The Jewel of Belize". Come on down, we are closer then you think!
