On the flight to BZE yesterday, I met a couple who after spending 1 week on AC on holiday were all about moving down to the island.
I am a relative novice to island life--as I have only visited for 1 week at a time (on my 3rd visit now). But, I will tell you this, being a member of this forum and talking to people who live on the island full-time has really opened my eyes to how challenging living in San Pedro can be. It is a beautiful place, with many beautiful people and beautiful things, but as Natalie says...It is not easy to make a living...
I told the couple that I met several things...(that I learned from people on this forum)
- Talk to people who live down there.
- Stay for a month at a time (trial basis, we'll say) @ different time of the year so you can experience all seasons that Belize has to offer.
Also, told them to join this forum. I find it very, very informative when it comes to knowing the "real deal" about life on San Pedro.
