Would like to know if long term rentals exist in PG and what amenities are avaiable there. Is there internet for example and can adequate food etc. be purchased there?
blueberryhill replied on October 30, 2014 with:
I an in your debt again. Thank you. I will check those websites.

I live in Placencia, and have friends in PG. Road is all paved. It's certainly a quieter place (and less touristy) than Placencia - just a regular place to live. No beaches but close to rainforest if you like to explore. Yes, the rainfall is heavier in the south, but it's not a big deal. Several hotels/backpacker places/resorts - have a look at Bel Campo for high end - just 15 minutes outside PG. Coral House Inn mid range in the middle of PG - they both have some details about the area on their webpages.

I have read articles about (potentially) a new international airport coming (eventually?) to the Placencia area, and wondered if anyone had anything they had heard about how real it was?
bobbyveee replied on October 30, 2014 with:
Theres been talk about one on the north of AC, they cant afford to build proper roads, so an international airport is pie in the sky

Hello, I' m looking for a camping trailer or a fifth wheel or even a sail boat for rent in March-April 2015?
mauricern replied on October 29, 2014 with:
Many thanks
Melissajane replied on October 28, 2014 with:
I agree with bobbyveee - trailers/5th wheels are very unusual here. To rent a sail boat check out TMM and Moorings - they both rent out boats with or without captain/crew.

Hello, My wife and I are looking for a long term rental in San Pedro. From mid-December through May/June. We are a responsible 50'ish couple looking to relocate to belize but want to rent for a while before deciding. Have been all over the country on earlier visits and decided it's SP or not at all. I'm handy and we'll take care of whatever property we rent. We could also supervise a construction project if needed Let me know if you can help me or guide me to someone who can help. Rgrds, Mike

exchiro posted Retired Chiropractor couple on the Belize forum on October 27, 2014:
We are considering visiting Belize for a year then becoming residents then possibly opening a very small part time chiropractic practice to treat tourists and locals (at better rates). We know there is no legal regulation of chiropractors in Belize but we're wondering what kinds of red tape could we run into with this plan?

pfaffy1 replied to the thread Searching for Artists on the Belize forum:
pfaffy1 initially posted:
I am searching for artists who might be interested in creating a coalition of support for a plan I have to develop an art curriculum for the elementary grades in Belize. This may involve 2 meetings a year in Belize to offer ideas and make suggestions for this project. After visiting 4 schools last October with the Belize Education Project in the Cayo District, I felt there was a need to include Visual Art as a subject in the schools. As a recently retired elementary and art teacher, I would like to move this plan forward, but need some help from the visual arts community. This year, I am returning with BEP, and am extending my stay another 3 nights with the hope of developing alliances. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
pfaffy1 replied on October 27, 2014 with:
Thank you for your interest. I just returned from 10 days in Belize, one night was spent on AC getting an updated list of local Belizean artist from a wonderful lady who ownes an art gallery there. I have submitted my proposal to an under secretary in the Ministry of Education. Hoping to hear from her soon. Things take time. Also, met a super lady in Belmopan who has opened her home to create an art school for kids. I think she will be a great help with the project. I'd love to chat with you more, my direct e-mail is I have some questions, as I am sure you do, as well.
pfaffy1 replied on October 15, 2014 with:
I will call you. Are you a working artist?

chinito1984 initially posted:
Hi, Does anyone on AC know if the 66ft reserve law applies to the lagoon side. I'm sure I've looked at houses south that are very close to the water.
Kenubelizeit replied on October 26, 2014 with:
The law applies to any water source but people get away especially if they are connected politically it would be wise though to stay away from properties that don't have this in effect as you may or may not get complications.

kittyl replied to the thread beach real estate on the Belize forum on October 25, 2014:
kittyl initially posted:
Live in Mx. Want to move to beach. Looking at Belize. Developments around Corozol don't seem to have turquoise water and are iffy. I don't want to be on a Caye or Peninsula (sea level rise). Seems Dangria is the next choice or are there any affordable BEACHES further north. I really would like to be able to shop in Chetumal where I am a single woman, permante residente.
kittyl replied on October 25, 2014 with:
Thanks, good to know.
belizelenny replied on October 25, 2014 with:
Corozal Water is Emerald, not deep enough for Turquoise. You have to be right on the sea, like a Caye or South to get that Color. Seafront is pricey, especially the Cays and Placencia. South is along ways from Chetumal, like 3 hours.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.but I didn't need a law advice.
Melissajane replied on October 25, 2014 with:
Hi - this is not legal. You are required to have a work permit to do any work - even in exchange for lodging.
