msrmg7 initially posted:
I plan on visiting Belize in the near future and I need input from you all. I will be retiring at the end of 2016. I have a friend from Belize and she suggested that check out Orange Walk, Ladyville and Belmopan. I am a single female and I want to move someplace that has security or a least a safe neighborhood. I don't have to live near the beach.

I dont have much money but i think Belize is a good place from what i have experience there, you get back what you put in that's my thought.

BV I don't have a chip you have been saying for the past year and a half that Belize have a problem and you did and is still doing it comparing Belize to Texas, England ,St Lucia and Florida, you guided this forum in that direction and gave me the choice to defend a Caribbean Country, Belize is not a poor country, it is not a third world country from my point of view, the food is healthy the people are friendly its not polluted as much , Every where is corrupted just as you say Belize is , just remember you lead by example and what example has the first world shown Belize???,if you have noting good to say about a place you called home for so many years, just don't say anything.

My husband and I grew up in St. Croix, USVI, in the mid-1960's, so a laid back tropical climate appeals to us. Living in the VI these days is too expensive and crime-ridden to be an option. Right now we're in Texas. I'm looking forward to reading through this forum for experiences and tips on living in Belize! Cheers, Nina

fantastic info, thank you. i should be down in december roughly, ill look into to that. how far south is hopkins from bc? are 20 acre plots standard for any farm land or just sugar plots?
bradinbelize replied on July 30, 2015 with:
Mark, drive out toward San Ignacio and see what's available. Tons of stuff appears to be available out that way. Or you could come slightly south (I'm in Hopkins) and you can easily grab something just north of here headed back toward BC/ Belmopan cut-off

bobbyveee replied to the thread Any one looking for a good deal on Beach land Hopkins area on the Belize forum:
hannakenney initially posted:
I have 302 lots just south of Hopkins we are just now opening to the public, get in first and save lots of money? When roads and power are all in prices will go way up. Get in on the ground floor and make a killing on this investment. We have just hired a marketing company and will start selling on the east coast first. So if you are one of the smart ones and knows a good deal when they see it this is for you. Message me and get all the really good details

Fred, I just try to live by one rule. Treat others as you wish others to treat you. Its a bit like the driver you've got to watch out for is the one behind the one infront of you. !!!
FredAr replied on July 30, 2015 with:
(Disclaimer: a silly attempt at humor in this fine morning) I always make the analogy, in my mind mind you, that whenever someone wants to hand me their 'baggage' (dark past experiences or bitterness) I instantly reminds me that - 'I am not a porter, I already got more than enough to carry'.

bobbyveee initially posted:
Be aware that Belize banks are having their ties with US banks severed, the banks that im aware of include Belize bank and Atlantic International bank, I understand that all Belize banks are having their ties with US banks severed. Those expats relying on bank transfers of monies from the USA may start to have major difficulties now or very soon.
FredAr replied on July 30, 2015 with:
I hear you, your post got my attention. I too have an international and local account there.
bobbyveee replied on July 30, 2015 with:
Fred, as from 31July you wont be able to transfer monies from USA to this bank in Belize. Going to make life difficult for expats

http://www.myweather2.com/City-Town/Belize/Placencia/climate-profile.aspx This year has been very interesting. June1-15th very, very nice and calm June 16-30th windy and cloudy July has come in spurts, from boring to excellent, in 3-4 day stretches.
bobbyveee replied on July 29, 2015 with:
Your best bet is to google weather in Belize, it gives all the past yrs records, rain heavier the further south you go. Also very variable could rain every day or be in a draught , that's Global Warming for you

HI all, does anyone have any information about plans for a new hospital in the southern half of Belize?I I'm not sure where it's supposed to be built, but would appreciate any info you could provide. Thanks! MBB
bradinbelize replied on July 30, 2015 with:
Live here in Hopkins, haven't heard or seen anything in regard to this at all. Please advise if you know something
bradinbelize replied on July 30, 2015 with:
Mocha, Basically THE hospital is in. bC (and I would say most expatsnDON'T want to live there - Detroit might be more congenial. The rest of the country is great, welcoming and basically easy-going, friendly, helpful people (I think the people in Belize might be the most helpful, friendly people in any country that I have been to (which is over 30-35). With that said, there is little to NO infrastructure here. Great place to be younger or middle aged, aging but not OLD as health facilities / capabilities are limited and especially in other places outside BC, a general practitioners nurse may be a great thing to get a job, but you are OVER QUALIFIED and looking for a job that just really doesn't exist outside BC, except maybe oAmbergris Caye since so many Americans and CAnadians live there, although still no real hospital there.
