An Expat Talks about Moving to Corozal, Belize

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.

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.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

Concrete single family home 1500 to 2000 sq ft.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

Originally San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, but after 4 years it got over populated and prices went way up. Moved to the mainland Northern Belize were there is less rain and humidity and 15 minutes from Chetumal where you can get low cost everything!
