In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

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.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

I am retired, so havent looked for ajob,

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.
