We are very curious and interested in Belize and want to see if we might want to "winter over" in SP during our retirement years. We are coming a week this coming December and I have some questions that the group might be able to help me answer.

Are there any groups or clubs, etc. of Expats that we could meet with to see how retirement life is suiting others? How do you get started socially with the community? We would want to be involved and meet others so we might find "our match" in other couples and have some people to enjoy socializing with while there.

Also, have heard that most of the good rental houses are handled "by owner" -- is that correct??

Thanks to all that help me...

Answer to all your socializing questons: Go to the bars. Plenty of fun expats and from there you will get to know people of the community and perhaps form your own group of friends.
