What should I bring when moving to Corozal?

Live in Corozal? Answer this Question

People living in Corozal were asked what three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They wrote:

"I have lived in Corozal for 8 years+. I came with all of my tools, kitchenware, bed, and clothes. It cost a lot to bring the stuff but have not regretted it one bit. My neighbors that came here with only a tooth brush are always asking about borrowing, or do you have. I am careful to get my stuff back, but because I brought all my stuff, I am the go to person. I did not come QRP, I paid duty on all my things. Everyone is different. If you don't plan to lift a finger, than don't bring anything. If you tinker, work or house or cars, enjoy cooking, bring your stuff," said another expat in Belize.

"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," added another person living in Corozal.
