I am looking for long term housing options and information. I am retired at 31 and not looking for work but might eventuly volenteer work. I need information on what I need to do to prepare myself for the move. Also can I set up direct deposet to Belize banks for my retirment checks? How much cash should I bring to set up? Should I fly or drive? Do I bring the microwave and stereo? Do I just need a passport? ect.

At first blush, it appears ,to me at least, that you have not done your "independent" reseach. Have you lived abroad before? Have you even traveled before? You may want to consider a visit to the island BEFORE moving. Use your own judgement not opinions of others.

For real, that is what I was wondering, retired at 31 and moving to Belize, just like that. Well good luck to you, how did you do it though? I only have 4 years on you and I am willing to learn real quick.

I am retired due to 2 war's and a training accident in Bolivea with the US Army. As far as independent homework that would be what this is I think. I have traveled abraud every major land mass and most of CA but you are right this is the first time outside of the border without Uncle Sam, and being in the middle of the jungle running and training with CA Soldiers. I am a Retired Airborne Ranger.

If you have not even visited , what makes you think that Belize is where you want to be?

Spend some time on the "search" button of this board....tons of info - do's dont's

BUT whatever you decide, you owe it to yourself to make a visit first, probably for a month at least.
