What do I need to know before moving to Belize?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Belize, they said:
"I’ll give the same advice everyone else gives, come by and stay a couple of months, visit different parts of the country THEN make your decision,"
mentioned another expat when asked about moving to San Pedro.
"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,"
commented one expat who made the move to Corozal.
"Don't. Come here and spend some time first, find out the in's and outs. Cee if you can put up with the bugs that will eat you alive. Or, no doctors or hospitals for miles. They will tell you if you get sick take a flight back to the States. Check on the duty to bring anything there. It's 100 percent that's why you can't find anything there to buy. Car's are all old and rusted out. You used to get two to one on your dollar, but that didn't mean anything when everything is three times the price. Most all that cheap farm land you see is cheap because it is low with water standing on much of it and it won't grow anything. The cows in the country are all sick, due to blow fly's which you're not suppose to use for meat, but they sell em anyway. Don't believe the hype on this place, and don't listen to me, go there and spend a few months and you will soon find yourself flying out as fast as you flew in,"
remarked another expat in Belize City, Belize.
"Do you research, feel free to contact me at [email protected] - I am now the Relocation Expert for Belize-

said another expat in Belize City.
