Hi there,

I'm new to this forum. I'm very interested in traveling to Ambergris Caye to check out Belize and possibly retire in this area and purchase property. I have never traveled to a foreign country alone and would love to meet some new expats upon my arrival.

I live in West Palm Beach florida and would like to hear from any expats that could meet up with me to show me around and i would love to hear your experience in Belize.

Best wishes,

Bird

I've made my plans to travel to Ambergris Caye, May 24 - June 1. I am so excited and scared at the same time. I'll be traveling alone for the first time in my life abroad. If anyone is interested in getting together for drinks or dancing....please email me. I love to have fun and am looking to meet some friends here in Belize. Happy Easter Belize, here I come.

Do yourself a favor when you get here and don't advertise the fact you have never traveled alone before ....... you may attract a creature or two that thinks they can take advantage of you. Just relax and enjoy.
My suggestions for a safe and happy visit - go snorkeling as often as you can, stay out of the roughneck bars, get up for the sunrise and go to bed early, volunteer to walk some dogs for Saga Humane Society, attend the wine-tasting at Wine de Vine, bring some excellent books for hammock-time reading, take some classes at Zen Arcade. I hope you have a fabulous time ....... !!

Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I won't announce i'm by myself. I did book a nice secure Condo in the heart of San Pedro...so, i'll be close to everything and near other expats to help me along. Best wishes, Robin (bird)

Hello Bird - I sure hope you are for real. Why do I say that? Because we have rascals who like to post misleading stuff here.

I'm intrigued because the name of my place is Birdland and yes I would be interested in meeting you.

You have had some good advice here and believe it - the land sharks will be all over you if they know who you are. Do not tell ANYONE you are looking to BUY ANYTHING except a reputable relator who has an established office.

Just be careful. I have lived here 10 years and love it but I came 8 times before I made the move.

Hi there, I assure you i'm real. I have always wanted to travel to Belize for many years...and just decided a few months ago to Just "DO It". I'm only starting my research for property as a retirement/rental income venture...but that is in the future. I live in West Palm Beach and work as a Systems Manager for Palm Beach County...so i still have several years before retirement. I'm just looking to meet some new friends and go from there.

Robin "Bird" is my nickname from High school! You may send a private email and I will give you my personal email address and FB info. Best wishes, Bird
