I have been interested in packing up and making the move to Belize for YEARS and finally, the start to this move is happening. I will be traveling down to Ambergris and then Placencia the first week in September to look for property and would love to get ANY and ALL advice that you guys could give me. Where to stay, where to buy and build, where to shop, where to hang out, where to eat, what should I be prepared for, what is going to shock me, etc. I can't wait to join the community down there.

This trip is simply to walk the land and see what it is all about. So I would really appreciate whatever you guys may know that can help me with the transition.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to reading, writing, meeting and partying with the new family! wink

I just moved her this week! Two of the best resources that helped me were:
San Pedro Scoop: and
Both of those blogs have a ton of info too on the best places to shop/eat/hang out etc. I also follow them on Instagram, and a ton of other Belize/San Pedro IG accounts will pop up as a recommendation to follow, so that's a fun picturesque way to check out what's happening.
