The 2018 IL retirement index has just been released. Out of 24 countries,Belize has dropped to 17 from last year where it was at 15. Costa Rica is first followed by Mexico. Where Belize suffers is cost of living, amenities, infrastructure and climate. Where it does well is ease of fitting in and residency. Health care was average but dropped 5 points from last year.. As for the fitting in category, it scores higher than all others except for Ireland. . So really the only advantage to retirement there as opposed to the other venues is the language. For me and most others based on the demographics of expat relocators, thats not good enough.

Gee, I'll bet, that just makes your day/year/life, doesn't it Dr. Mexico.

Seriously Dude, there's got to be more to life than trolling an expat website for a country you don't even live in and trashing it at every opportunity.

You must be so bored and lonely up there. It certainly doesn't speak well for the social and activities life available to one living in your area of Mexico, if this is, seemingly, your primary source of entertainment.

If by IL you mean International Living, I would not consider anything they have to say worth the time to read.

To blcosier and cc4me don't confuse me with the facts my mind is made up. I have vacationed in Belize for years and love it there. I have friends there and they love it. For those of you already living in Belize you don't really have many option as to what to do about the shortcomings of Belize. For those of us that are not retirement planted yet we have more options. The Good Dr and BobbyV got me to thinking a couple years ago and we have found similar properties in Mexico and think that will be our new choice. I thank them. You guys don't want to hear their side of the story so you resort to name calling, etc. They just give their views and that is what this forum is about...shame on you!

That's great that YOU have found what YOU want. I suppose you should now go to the "Mexico" thread and start providing information for those who are considering Mexico as an option.

What I don't see is you trolling the thread of a country you don't live in, and either never have (Katzgar), or haven't for over 5 years and we're basically thrown out of the country for dubious reasons (Dr. A) and taking every opportunity to trash the country and those who support it and rarely state anything positive. THAT is NOT "what this forum is for"!

There are folks in here who provide HONEST, CURRENT and "both sides of the story" information one needs as they investigate Belize as an option (BradInBelize, BobbyV, Terrific, etc.). THAT "is what this forum is about".

In regards to your scolding...No Worries, I'm not ashamed in the least for calling out TROLLS on a public forum, but Thanks for your concern.

Just came back from Mexico and looked at some property for investment. Just can't deal with The Bank Trust for holding property at this time.
