Hello,
I am planning on relocating to A/C sometime after January of 2002. I have sent e-mails out requesting information on long term rentals. Is there anyone out there that can tell me which of the places on A/C are better than the others. Initially I'll be staying for the 6 months required to get residency. Any info is welcomed.

As a person in the same boat..it has been challenging over email etc...b/c you can't really tell what the place is like and they seem expensive. It seems that once you are there it is much easier. The Paper (SP Sun) lists rentals in the classified section

McJen,
When is it that you are going to be in AC? I forgot your dates... Anyway, I hope you find something reasonable, and I hope you keep in touch. I just can't imagine how exciting this is going to be for you.

I know that beach front is going to be lots more expensive, but if at all possible I'd have to go for it. Can't imagine being on A.C. and not waking up to that view.

Also, I was just wondering if you had even considered staying on the mainland, where it is much cheaper. I have not explored the mainland yet, but reading Lan's reports has really made me want to do that.

Anyway... best to ya, and I hope things work out for you.

Kathy

Hey KC,

I leave the big city (Seattle) on Sept 29th! I am very excited. Yes, the mainland would be cheaper..but I fell in love with San Pedro. I am excited to spend more time inland though..who knows, maybe I will find a new love!

AWYATT, Have you been to Belize? If so, have you spent any time on the mainland? Sounds like you need to do some extensive research on the requirements/desireabilities of living there! Use the search capabilities of this board.They can be an enormous help in you decision! AC is NOT the only place in the country!!.....Good luck and happy hunting for you paradise!!...Richard

I think RickCheri are right about the 1 year for residency. Are you on sabbatical as well? That is what I am doing.

Regular residency in Belize has for a long time required a year's residency before you can apply (you can only be out of the country for 14 days during that period.) But for residency under the Qualified Retired Persons Incentive Act, there is no residency requirement. Ditto for those investing in Belize or under the Economic Citizenship program.
