We just happen to run across an older post...Is there a need for a bicylce/golf cart repair shop?

Thanks,
Fanny & Zoltan

I always thought if I wanted to start a business on AC, I would open up a snowmobile sales and service. That way the end result would be like most, I would go broke, but at least I would not have to work hard while doing it. wink

To answer the original question from Fanny and Zoltan - San Pedro seems to have sufficient repair shops for both bicycles and golf carts.

I think a week doesn't go by without someone I have met visiting here asking me to help them find where can they live, what work can they do. So many people who would love to live here. Can't blame them, it is beautiful here. But as in all places, there are good things and bad things. It is not easy making a living here.

On the flight to BZE yesterday, I met a couple who after spending 1 week on AC on holiday were all about moving down to the island.

I am a relative novice to island life--as I have only visited for 1 week at a time (on my 3rd visit now). But, I will tell you this, being a member of this forum and talking to people who live on the island full-time has really opened my eyes to how challenging living in San Pedro can be. It is a beautiful place, with many beautiful people and beautiful things, but as Natalie says...It is not easy to make a living...

I told the couple that I met several things...(that I learned from people on this forum)

- Talk to people who live down there.
- Stay for a month at a time (trial basis, we'll say) @ different time of the year so you can experience all seasons that Belize has to offer.

Also, told them to join this forum. I find it very, very informative when it comes to knowing the "real deal" about life on San Pedro.

I take my bike to ElGuapo's its close to the Texaco Dock and cheap. he also does motorcycles. it would be hard to beat his price and service.
I've had the idea that a landscaping business would be big. lots of new homes that need particular services.
