I am looking to retire in Belize in 2012, Never been there but have traveled the Caribbean and Costa Rica and parts extensively. I have an employee who was born in Belize and mother stills lives there, however he lived in the far south. Any personal points of view would be appreciated. Have looked at a lot of sites and have a general overview. I will be traveling to Belize in May of 2012 to look around. Retiring in Sep 2012. Thanks,

Lloyd, You need to come down and stay for a few months before you make any permanent changes in your life. Most US citizens down here live in San Pedro but of course there are other options. The best advise I can give is spend some time in Belize and visit different areas. Find out if this is for you and if it is great.

Good luck

I very much agree...and it was how I did it (though at the age of 33). Try it for a year. Keep the majority of your things at home and rent. It sounds like you should probably try a few different locations.

I think you will like Belize...but finding the place you like might take a few months. Don't rush it.

please listen to this good advise.

I came a total of 8 times before I made the ultimate move and changed my mind several times about different areas. I totally urge you to rent - maybe long term lease to save money - for at least a year before buying anything.
