Diann, Hello from Colorado Springs. My wife & I have been to Bze twice and would be happy to visit and discuss. We could meet in Castle Rock or talk on phone. Briefly, the placencia peninsula , which we visited is veerryy intersesting for retirement possibilities. I noticed 2 things about successfull ex-pats in Bze
1] They made their money before they gpt there,as working there is a difficult paperwork SNAFU. See H. Wouks' Don't Stop the Carnival, The ex-Pat bible.
2] They were mostly sober as Bze is the real Temptation Island.
