What is a Discovery Stay?

Plan Your Trip

We’ll handle the logistics

In preparation for your trip, our travel agent will book the most convenient flights to accommodate your schedule. Once you’ve arrived in Belize City, a Legacy Advisor will greet you at the airport and handle all of the transportation while you’re here.

Day 1

Relax at Orchid Bay

Upon arrival in Belize, we’ll transport you and any other guests to Orchid Bay. You'll be free to explore the community, hang out on the beach, and enjoy the day as you please.

Day 2

Experience Paradise-Living

The day begins with a breakfast buffet at the Tradewinds Restaurant. After breakfast, we'll take you around our community and show you our homes. The afternoon is yours to enjoy, including a complimentary massage and a relaxing boat ride.

Day 3

Explore Corozal

You’ll start your day with a quick snack at Tradewind's. Then you’ll hop on a boat to check out ancient Mayan ruins on your way into Corozal, where you'll enjoy breakfast and a tour of the town. We'll return to Orchid Bay for a delicious lunch and then you'll get to relax, hang out, and do whatever you want.

Day 4

Back to the Grind

You’ll enjoy one last breakfast at Orchid Bay before we depart to the airport in Belize City. At this point, some guests decide to extend their visit so they can enjoy the amenities at Orchid Bay even longer (additional charges apply).

What to Pack

Belize has amazing tropical weather, which makes it easy for packing light. In the winter months, you can expect an average high of 75°F, and an average high of 85°F throughout the summer months. We recommend lightweight shoes, t-shirts, and tank tops for day and night.

20190407 Video #7 - The paradise retirement plan

Find your home.

Most retirees buy a home at Orchid Bay several years before retiring. This gives you time to enjoy holidays and family getaways at your home in paradise while you’re still working.

Enter our Rental Program

By putting your home in our optional Rental Program, you can generate revenue that helps offset the cost of ownership of your home until you retire. Don’t worry, you will still get plenty of personal use out of your home throughout the year when you aren’t renting it out.

Retire and move to Orchid Bay

Once you’re ready to retire, you have spent enough time here to know if you’d like to become a full-time resident in Belize. If so, you could be eligible for Belize’s Qualified Retirement Program (QRP) – one of the most attractive incentives for expats who want to enjoy life in a tropical destination with a favorable cost of living.

Otherwise, you can continue to rent your home and enjoy part-time or seasonal residence here. Speak to a Legacy Advisor for more information.

Investing in Belize

Belize is a wonderful place to live and retire – largely because it’s favorable for North Americans who want to invest in foreign real estate. Here’s a quick glance at what makes Belize attractive to investors:

invest in belize (1)

  • Low property taxes          
  • No estate tax or capital gains tax

  • Belize allows 100% foreign ownership of property and businesses

3 Must-Do Activities for Your Belize Bucket List

  • See the Great Blue Hole- As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Great Blue Hole is considered one of the world’s most distinguished diving sites. Created approximately 10,000 years ago after a cave roof crumbled in, this deep blue abyss contains underwater tunnels, caverns, and rock formations.
  • Visit Ambergris Caye- This 25-mile long island off the coast of northern Belize caters to snorkelers and divers. The island offers easy access to the barrier reef and exploring the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. When you’re not underwater, you can eat, go shopping, and enjoy beachside cocktails in San Pedro, Ambergris’ main town.
  • Explore Lamanai- Lamanai is a 960-acre Mayan site located on the New River Lagoon in Northern Belize. Its name means “submerged crocodile”and that’s what you’ll encounter when you visit, including artifacts depicting reptiles, plus crocodiles and iguanas crawling along its banks.

Why More Expats and Retirees Choose Belize

For those who want to own a piece of paradise, Belize isn’t the only option, but it is one of the most attractive options for several reasons – close proximity to the United States, English-speaking people, and a predictable exchange rate pegged to the US Dollar.

One option to consider is Costa Rica. However, you’ll find that equivalent real estate is significantly more expensive in Costa Rica, they don’t have retirement incentives, and you will need to speak a little Spanish to get around. Plus, Belize is closer to North America.

Another option is Panama, which does have a similar retirement program, but it lacks the natural beauty and desirable location of Belize. Your home budget also won’t go as far in Panama – especially if you want to live in a beachfront community.
