My husband and I are looking for something new, and are seriously considering moving our family of 8 to Belize. We are interested in operating a dive shop/operation, riding stable, b&b or some similar type of hospitality business. Is this doable for new comers? Where would we find businesses for sale, what are the best areas? Any thoughts on raising the kids there ages 16,14,6,5,3,1???

Wow! What an amazing adventure is ahead for your family! Make sure you keep a journal (and encourage the kids too). The Cayes are nice, but you may want to look into Cayo (San Ignacio area). The duPlooy's family made the move back in the 80's with a van full of kids. Great people and they run an awesome resort up there too. Look it up.

Some day I would love to horses on the island, up north at least. Somebody needs to be the pioneer.

Good luck!

We had horses here years ago but the owner was underfinanced and failed to properly care for the horses. Eventually Barry Bowen sent them to his Gallon Jug Plantation for rehab.

Moving to Belize will be a huge adventure. #1, don't cut all your ties back home, #2 bring plenty of funds and have a sound business plan.

Lots of families take the plunge and make the big move. Probably 50% of the families stay in Belize for more than 3 years. It's an adventure, but not for the feint of heart. I was fortunate enough to move here as a child. If we had the chance to do it all over, I wouldn't change a thing. I love Belize, I am now a Belizean citizen. I have raised my kids here and I don't see any reason in the world to leave.

Good luck. Enjoy. And when you narrow down the area you are going to move to, tell us all about it. This board is a wealth of knowledge.

You'll have absolutely no trouble at all finding all kinds of businesses that are ready willing and eager to sell.
