You know even with the electric being high in the summer, I forget there are two of us, so we do live for a lot less than the States. As Lara points out about low taxes, golf cart vs car, eating local style food most of the time, and things have to be cooked from scratch; those things save a lot. If the house was paid, and our house in the States were sold, it would be quite cheap.

This post is for Dane, I am inquiring about the house you have built. M wife and I are planning to retire to AC and we are starting to plan for this now and one of the big decisions is wether to build a home or buy a condo. If you do not mind could you pm me with a way that I could contact you.

Thanks, Greg Hebert

There are three economies..period. Local. Gringo. Tourist. Tourists cannot manage the gringo way for long etc.. It is the for long part that trips up most folks. the Belizean oligarchs will share in your pecking order. You may move down a peg but rarely move up. If you plan to retire here well bring lots of money. Locals never really retire. Gringos die off pretty fast or move off faster, wiser, more patient and have left a ton of money behind. To be happy here you double down day one and cope. It can be done on $2,000 USD a month but that is relative comfort in a third world country. Come because you can afford to do so and are not trying to recreate 'home' on the cheap. Be a part of the community and if you et to really crossover you will be happy. Ex-pats are just that. Looking to have some fun and become part of a new community that is foreign to them and MAY take a lifetime to ever really understand.

Well, Timmy, I read your post...let it sit, read it again, now would like you to explain yourself, whichever Tim you are. First it sounds like you are drunk. Second it doesn't make sense. Third, try again if you have something say.
