I think sosmary is sosfullofit. San Antonio, TX is a city with about 1.6 million people and had 116 murders in 2008.

So lets see that is 116/365=.32 per day. Hardy the 1-2 murders that sos states. I have to ask again. What is your point? Are you an American troll or a Belizean troll?

Belize is lovely, but it is not a Crime free Utopia.
I have owned here for years (but am still a "part time" resident)
I have been robbed several times.
Like any Country - there are some areas that are better than others.

If a low crime rates is your sole criteria - there are far more "virtually crime free" areas in the U.S.

The Crime stats. in my Midwest Home Town:
Offense 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006
Murder, Man-Slaughter 0 0 0 0 0 0
Forcible Rape 0 0 0 0 0 0
Robbery 0 0 0 0 0 0
Aggravated Assault 4 3 0 0 0 2

(the cut & paste is a bit askew but you can see my point)

The crime rate in Belize is one of the most heated topics. You'll find every different opinion imaginable. Some people feel perfectly comfortable, others are extremely cautious. But what it really comes down to is like what DrSteve and bonbon said: Some areas are better than others, and you really have to try Belize out and decide for yourself whether you feel comfortable enough to bring children down.

Some people regret moving to Belize, others regret not doing it sooner.

Good luck!
