My wife and I will be traveling to Belize in September for vacation and retirement planning. Although we will be primarily visiting Abergris, we plan to make a visit to Corozal as well. We are open to and looking for any recommendations regarding our travel, ways to get the best look at the country to determine if it's the answer to our dreams, and possibly an expat group or tour guide to get into the "pineapple pipeline". Thanks in advance for any help or advice. Cheers,

Hi Eric - You will be coming during a time that can be challenging for a traveler ...... we tend to take September off.
Hotels closed, restaurants closed ..... but the party is ON. Two major holidays that month.
Weather is also uncertain - can range from lovely to very wet.
Please forgive the mosquitoes which will probably be very prominent at that time. Most of the year we have none at all.

Hey Diane,
Thanks for the info! Mosquitoes we can handle after living 10 years in the coastal low country of GA, SC. And weather shouldn't be an issue as we need a mental break more than anything. Now the restaurants being closed... my stomach has an issue with that. They don't close the bars do they!?! I can make a meal out of cherries and limes in the bottom of my glass I guess.

What time of the year would be for a first visit? I am an Artist and thinking about staying for six months to get the feel of the land.
thanks, DD44

Come in May ..... Beautiful weather, not too busy end of dry season. Stay through Sept. You'll have a chance for a reasonable rental and get to see our "seasons".
