People are diverse, expats, locals, mayans, spanish etc.

Yes, they are very friendly and accepting of differences. It's a tourist town, when the cruise ships come in once or twice a week. So, there are always loads of strangers about town, speaking different languages etc. Most locals are very friendly and welcoming of strangers.

I am retired, so havent looked for ajob,

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Work

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Always travel to Belize first before you move here. Never try to make Belize just like it was for you back home... just accept Belize for what it is and enjoy it. It's an emerging third world country.... not the USA, so keep your expectations in check and go with the flow.

I VISITED BELIZE CITY, BELMONPAN AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS ABOUT 5 WEEKS AGO. (SEPT. 2010) THIS IS AN ACCURATE REPORT. THE PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY, BUT IT IS DEFINITLEY NOT THE USA. BUT I STILL THINK IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO RETIRE IF ONE IS NOT DEMANDING
