Imagine a place where the comforts of home meet the enchanting views of the Caribbean. Where your loved ones can gather, where time slows to a pace you can savor, and where you are free from the stress and distractions of daily life.

For those who refuse to accept the status quo – we invite you to discover a life hidden from the familiarity of North America. A place where dreams are fulfilled.
1. You’re only steps from the water Our Bungalows are located in the heart of our community village, which means the ocean is only a short walk from your front door.
2. Thoughtful floor plans for comfort and efficiencyChoose between a 1-bed/1-bath or 2-bed/1-bath floor plan to keep everyone comfortable and maximize the use of your home space.
3. Enjoy a patio made for paradise Each bungalow offers a spacious, covered patio so you can relax in the shade while enjoying the fresh ocean breezes.
4. Modern interior finishes You’ll get to live in a home that looks like it belongs on HGTV –in fact, our Bungalows are nicer than our home that was featured on House Hunters International.
5. All of the Orchid Bay amenities for less Save money on your home and enjoy all of our great amenities, such as the Orchid Bay Beach Club, Tradewinds Restaurant, and community pool
Most condos are designed to maximize the efficiency of smaller living spaces, which is nice, but it can leave you feeling cramped. We take a different approach, combining efficiency and comfort, which means you get a full-size kitchen, full-size bedrooms, and full-size closets.
We intentionally limit our condominium towers to a total of six units and most of our condo residents don’t live here full-time, so you don’t have to worry about noisy neighbors (or worry about being the noisy neighbor)
We will release more Beachfront Condos soon on a first-come, first-serve basis. Click the button below to get an invite to our next private release before we make them available to the public.
Our Villas offer more living space than any of our other homes, which helps you accommodate more family and friends with plenty of room for everyone.
With open floor plans, two stories of covered patios, and an optional covered rooftop deck – our Villas are a dream home for those who want to entertain in paradise
If you’re going to own a vacation home, we believe you should be able to mix business with pleasure by generating revenue from your home in paradise.

Terms and conditions apply for eligibility – speak to a Legacy Advisor today to learn more about how you can turn your vacation home in paradise into a smart investment that makes sense for your family.
Buying a getaway or retirement home is an important decision for you and your family. Let us help you explore your options to ensure that Orchid Bay is the best fit for you.
When you’re ready to test-drive living in paradise, you can book a Discovery Stay where we’ll host you for an unforgettable 4-day, 3-night tour of our community.
Once you and your family decide that Orchid Bay is right for you, we’ll walk you through the entire process of selecting and closing on your new home in paradise.
Before buying a home, you need to see our property and experience the Orchid Bay lifestyle firsthand. A Discovery Stay is an epic 4-day, 3-night vacation where we host you and a guest on an unforgettable trip to Belize as well as a comprehensive tour of our community.
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.
You’ll start your day with a sunrise over the reef before we meet up for breakfast. Then you’ll get to explore ancient Mayan ruins as we make our way to Orchid bay. That evening, you’ll get settled in before the welcome dinner and social night.
The day begins with a breakfast buffet at the Tradewinds Restaurant. After breakfast, you’ll enjoy a day of nonstop fun that includes sailing out into the Caribbean, snorkeling along reefs, and world-class fishing. The evening is yours to enjoy as you please.
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.
The Orchid Bay Discovery Stay is $1,999, which includes food, drinks, excursions, and in-country travel for you and a guest. However, the first six groups who book a Bungalow Discovery Stay will get a special discount.
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.
The perfect combination of amazing weather, luxurious amenities, and a laid-back lifestyle provide the opportunity to leave your stress and worries behind. When you’re here – you’re free to relax and live in the moment.
Orchid Bay is a master-planned community located in Northern Belize. As one of the premier communities in Northern Belize, we were featured on House Hunters International in 2010 and have since expanded to offer better homes with modern designs, such as our new Bungalows.
Legacy Global Development is an international real estate development company with properties throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. We have set forth on a mission to bring the master plan to life, expanding on the original vision to create a community our residents are proud to call home.
Located in the Corozal District of Northern Belize, Orchid Bay is located in a quiet part of the country where you can enjoy the serenity of “being away from it all.”
We have our own private beach for Orchid Bay residents and visitors that remains clean and pristine, unlike other beaches overrun with tourists.
Orchid Bay is located close to the Mexican border with bordering states that include Tulum, Cozumel, Cancún, and Playa del Carmen. If you need to do any shopping beyond the local farmer’s market, Chetumal is your best option.
Orchid Bay is close enough to the leading tourist destination in Belize, Ambergris Caye, for easy access, but far enough away that you will feel more like a local – which is part of what makes Orchid Bay special.
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:
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.
Now is the perfect time to buy a home at Orchid Bay because for the first time ever, we’re offering a Paradise Payment Program on the only new homes we have available under $200k. Plus, right now you can even save money on your Discovery Stay if you’re one of the first six groups to book your trip.
