An Expat Talks about Moving to Corozal, Belize


Corozal, Belize

An expat who originally moved to Ambergris Caye decided to move to the mainland after the AC became overpopulated and prices on the island rose dramatically. He moved to the Corozal area and appreciates the lower cost of living there.

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Corozal

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

I wish I had brought more original copies of important documents i.e., Birth Certificate, Marriage License, Titles of assets, 5 yrs of Tax records, Medical etc...It is hard to obtain these once you have made the move. Contact info on the Businesses and Gov agencies you will need from back home in case issues come up. More family Photos.

Things I wish I left behind: Long Pants, I have ten pairs of jeans that get used twice a year. My watch, it's useless when everyone else is on a plus or minus an HOUR schedule.
