The Remax VIP Relocation Guide

Ten years ago, I started writing this relocation guide with the hope of helping North American ex-pats make an informed decision on their retirement plans. The original guide was published in 2012, and through the years it made it into different households in different countries, spreading the word about beautiful Belize. Ten years later, our team has met and helped families from every corner of the world start new lives in this beautiful country we call home.
