The Case for Belize
While many people love traveling and exploring new places, moving to another country as an expat can be a giant leap. It is a way for globetrotters to take their wanderlust to new levels, and to find new financial and personal opportunities.
Rachel Jensen, originally from New York, has done it more than once and has finally settled in Belize. She is now the the vice president of sales and marketing for ECI Development, a real-estate development company with projects in Belize, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.
In particular, Belize is distinct from her Central American neighbors. With a population of about half a million residents, the national language is English, and she enjoys a mix of Latin America, the Caribbean, and a British colonial legacy. These days many people from the Anglosphere go there for a new home, off the beaten track.
