Does anyone know of a good engineer that I can discuss house plans with? thanks warren bailey webailey@telus.net

Stephen Miller, a residential architect, who lives in Ohio, is quite familiar w/ Bz building laws, etc, having been heavily involved in a pvt island project just off the SP area. I met him 2 years ago and feel he is competent and honest. I am sure he would welcome discussion of his abilities and your needs. smiller@residentialsunlimited.com

Is it easy/safe to bicycle in Belmopan?
bobbyveee replied on March 23, 2015 with:
In truth cycling in Belize is not a good idea. The standard of driving and road surfaces do not make for safe cycling

Is there a place to meet up with expats as a solo traveler for exploring? Want to pick 2 weeks to come down. I work at a college and winter break, which is busy time there I know, is 3 1/2 weeks. I'd also entertain coming at a slower time to perhaps save and see more since less crowded. Thanks for reading........???? Cloudy in Cleveland

Moving-to-Corozal
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Research, Research, and more Research. Then do a spread sheet on three "Time and Cost" scenarios for a final decision on whether getting here by Land, Sea, Air, or a combination will be more effective. (Continue)

Are there apartments in Corozol by the water. Are the insects bad. How much a month for a retired person to expect per month?

We did our permanent move In Jan. to the San Ignacio area. We drove from North Carolina to Miami, Florida, put the car onto a freighter to Belize, used a customs broker in Belize City and had an incredible easy time with the with the whole process. Would strongly advise shipping with a broker.

Look back at some of the other posts. People have done it so it is not impossible but requires planning. I think a lot of your questions may be answered if you look at the older posts.
