I bet you guys are getting tired of reading this stuff but here goes anyway!!
Me and my better half STAR are planning to expat down to your "neck of the woods" and are STARVING for information.
We are both retired U.S. Navy and love the ocean but have found that what we are seeking is unattainable here in the U.S.
We are both in our mid 40's and ready to slow down a "LITTLE"
We are avid Harley riders and for what we understand the cayes are somewhat "off limits" and we can understand that but STILL want to be REAL close to the beach!!!
We are by NO means wealthy but at the same time we are MORE than happy to work hard for what we want.
I used to own 50% of a business building hurricane "PROOF" houses and we would LOVE to find a small lot somewhere close to or (why not dream) ON the beach WITHOUT neighbors!!! I have a U.S. patent for a "wave generator" which would put us in a position to set up "camp" off the grid so to speak.
At the same time we are NOT hermits so roads and a store not TO far away would be nice!! A bar would be GREAT!!!
ANY info or just a little chat would be VERY apreciated!
Thank you VERY much to ALL that answered our post!
We were looking at caye caulker but found that traffic is WAY to controlled and we want to come down there NOT being pains in the ...!!!!! We will be looking into Punta Gorda and the southern part as well as Corozal and Placencia!
The wave generator needs VERY little waves to support a household! It works even on a lake so,,,,
Good morning y'all! Well we just had a Tornado sweep through our neighborhood tearing trees up, roots and all, crashing down on houses and cars! The Prez is giving away Billions of $'s that we don't have to the Arabs so we are getting closer and closer to becoming neighbors!
I'd do some internet research into areas you like the sound of. Then come down and spend a few weeeks on a recce trip travelling around your several options to see your preferred areas in person and spend a week or two in each and pick one. Then live in a rented house in the preferred area for at least 6 months. If you still want to buy in that area you will by then know who is who and what is what.
