tanagnaya, you are doing it all right, girl. come down for a few months, chill, get to know this special someone and enjoy life. san pedro is a very special place and the people are what make it that way for me. apartments can be found in the $400-$700 range (and up.) food and drink are a little more expensive. don't mind any of the negative posts found on this thread. these fools are surely still living in the states worrying about the weather and traffic rather than "living the dream" (CJ) in belize.
