What do I need to know before retiring in Dangriga?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Dangriga, they said...

"Dangriga is a popular retirement destination due to its tropical climate, beautiful beaches, and affordable cost of living. Before retiring in Dangriga, expats should be aware that the official language is English, but many locals also speak Garifuna, Spanish, and Creole. The cost of living is generally lower than in the US or Europe, but imported goods can be expensive. Healthcare in Dangriga is adequate for minor issues, but for serious health problems, you may need to travel to larger cities or even out of the country. It's recommended to have a comprehensive health insurance plan that covers medical evacuation. The climate in Dangriga is tropical, with a wet and dry season. It's hot and humid throughout the year, so it's important to be prepared for this type of weather. While Dangriga is generally safe, like any place, it has its share of crime. Expats should take standard precautions to protect their personal safety and belongings. The Belizean government offers a Qualified Retired Persons (QRP) program that allows expats to live in Belize tax-free, but there are specific requirements to qualify for this program. Public transportation in Dangriga is limited, so having a personal vehicle can be beneficial. However, the road conditions can be poor, especially in the rainy season. The culture in Dangriga is a mix of Garifuna, Maya, and Mestizo influences. Expats should respect local customs and traditions. While Dangriga has a slower pace of life, there are still plenty of activities for retirees, including fishing, boating, hiking, and exploring the local culture. Lastly, it's recommended to visit Dangriga and stay for a while before deciding to retire there, to ensure it's a good fit for your lifestyle and preferences," explained one expat living in Dangriga, Belize.
