Dear Dreaming
Before you "pick up sticks" read the book "Don't Stop The Carnival."

i read lan suders books too before getting here. there is nothing to completely prepare you, just come with an open mind.

suffice to say, many many many of us are completely in love with the place.

Dreaming of sun, Don't stop dreaming but please - visit until your children are raised. There are no schools here for teenagers, that remotely come close to a High school in the States or Canada. Teen years are tough enough without having to deal with a different culture, loss of friends, and getting a sub-standard education.


Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

indygal - I might agree with different culture & loss of friends - but sub-standard education???? I don't know any Belizean child that has moved to the states or Canada that has been "held back". Most of the Belizean kids I know end up as A and B students if they go up to high school or college.

I grew up here in Belize and attended San Pedro High School. I may not be a lawyer or a doctor - but that is by choice not because of inability.

I am totally gob smacked that you believe the Belize education system is sub-standard. In fact I am so amazed I can't even type anymore right now!!!!!

Dreamin of the sun. Why not call the new owners of Capricorn Resort. They just moved here with 2 teens. I am sure that they would be very pleased to answer your questions - they are lovely, friendly people.
