Hello everyone,

My family have been thinking of relocating to belize. At first glance Belize sounds like the perfect place to relocate. Currently i live in california, riverside county. My biggest concern is how peaceful it is there and laid back according to much of the advertisements. But doing some reseach, crime appears relativly rampant in belize. Murder, rape, robbery per capita is many times higher then the area i live in the USA and its not the best area.

We are considering purchasing 50-100 acres in south belize, small ranch 15 miles from town. Are their any Americans that relocate and purchase small ranches without problems with crime.
