My wife an I are starting to plan our retirement in Belize. The question now is....where?
For now, anywhere else.
Leave your money in the bank or under the mattress. Come to Belize and revel in the glory of the cayes. Try...if you can...to NOT think of Belize as a tourist destination but as a place to live - understandably hard to do when on vacation but the reality is, it takes time for the reality to set in. You MIGHT find Belize the perfect locale. Or you might not.
Now that you made the horrid mistake of putting out how much you can put out, you'll get no end of interest around your price range. Ignore it. All of it.
Belize is a beautiful country with many delightful people, locals and expats alike but...
Eyes wide open, yes?
