I am a 42 single female and am considering purchasing a place to live in AC Belize for when I retire at 67 or 70. I went to Belize a couple of years ago (Turnafee Flats) and loved Belize. I have already logged in hours and hours of research on the internet but there are so many options - I thought it would be best to ask people who actually live in Belize (or go there very often). My preferences include easy access to snorkeling, a nice beach with easy access to the ocean for swimming, a gut renovated/or to build new interior situation, an amazing pool, access to restaurants (taxi/bike/walking/golf cart good enough), other people around, and I would like to have a dog. I am hoping for a combination of a sociable/exciting area but also somewhat quiet and peaceful area at night. I only need a 1 bedroom/1 bath but would prefer a large shower and either soaking tub/jacuzze. I can put $150,000 down and would prefer that to pay off the entire deal as I am not rich and would need to save quite a bit going forward for eventual living expenses when I retire. I looked at the Captain Morgans and Coco Beach sites and that set up looked nice but I am sure you can not have a dog. I also looked at Tranquility for their amazing beach but did not see availability to purchase anything. Thanks in advance for all your suggesstions/thoughts!

Best,
Judy from MA, USA

AC is a great place and I think everything you just described can be found there! We have a place on the island and visit as often as possible. ENJOY!

Just to make sure you don't get too many messages that say the same thing...most people will tell you to spend as much time here as you can. Try out all the different parts of the Island, and that's easy as there are rentals and resorts everywhere. Your price probably won't allow you to build or renovate, but there are nice places at that price. It's different living here than visiting. All right, what usual pithy bits of advice have I missed? Oh, research is good, but staying here trumps all the research.

Judy,
Have you figured out how to read your Private Messages? Just sent you one that might be some help.

I first visited in 2000, and have seen what the last 10 years have w(b)rought. Can't wait to see what it looks like 25 years from now, when JudyB comes down.
