That's a weird statement...

When do you plan on moving down, do you know where you're staying?

agreed! You should have no expectations of anything or anyone "returning the favor" especially moving to another country.

Were you under the seemingly pervasive impression that Belize is cheap? I've noticed a lot of folks announce they are coming and that they expect it to be inexpensive. It's not. It's likely more expensive than your current situation. Where do you live now, what do you do to support yourself?


I hope that someday we can put aside our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

i'd suggest a year's worth of money in the bank before you go. as they said, regardless if you are well rounded or willing, if a belizean is qualified for any job you apply for, they get first dibs. better to be prepared than not.

do you have a unique skill? one that a local couldn't do? that would be a real plus. otherwise i think you have to live a year as a resident before getting working papers.

am i close here, or off the mark, guys?

I wouldn't move to another country, let alone one in Central America, without having something lined up. You will get to Ambergris Caye, find a tonne of great people and parties and not much work for a gringo who isn't operating his/her own business.

I wish you good luck, but I would come down with a great deal of back-up money and a plan.

Does anyone remember the guy a few years back who insisted that he didn't need a work permit to get by here. He was coming from Cancun I think. A few months after arriving here he was a crack head living off the streets and ended up in Hattieville.

The same as everyone elses. If you can't support yourself don't bother.
