You might also check the Living in Belize section of our Web edition of Belize First Magazine (http://www.turq.com/belizefirst
). It has candid, ad-free information. Our News Round-Up section also has news on recent developments in retirement residency and worker permit laws in Belize.
My new book, Live Well in Belize, covering relocation, retirement and investing/property purchase/business start-ups in Belize, will be published by Avalon next year (they also do the Rick Steves Europe Through the Back Door and the Moon Handbook Guides).
I've interviewed a large number of people who have bought property in Belize or who have started businesses there. Their unvarnished views will be included in the book.
