I think that is a bit harsh ... 2 months. I don't think so. Like anywhere in the world, one needs to aware of what is going on around them. The bigger question is getting work permits. You need to find a sponsor / contact person. Make sure this IS what you want to do. Living on an island and not changing living habits can be EXPENSIVE, electricty is expensive ... so a/c in a house can cost a bunch of bucks. Can't eat out all the time either ... might need to do some fishing etc. It is a different life style...which can be good or bad .. all depends on the person. We are all different. I know i could live there and love it. But i would need a/c every so often just to cool off during the really hot months.

Good luck on your adventure

I would come and spend 6 months here and in other places in Belize before committing to moving permanently. Island life isnt for everyone. Crime exists everywhere in the world and you need to use common sense just like you would at home.

Yes, of course there are police on the island. Crime isn't any worse on the island than anyplace else in Belize. It sure is a lot better than Belize City...for true.

You need to spend some time on the island. Make up your OWN mind. Talk to the people.

Good Luck ... life is an adventure, not a guided tour afterall

When planning to live in Caye Caulker, I believe that lots of things will have to be considered in terms of jobs etc. I just need to point out that as compared to other countries, we are living in a good country so it is not so nice to actually blurt out that Caye Caulker is a haven for criminal matters.

Have a heart!!

I had a heart. Caye Caulker took it away. It left when I learned that the moral integrity of the men can totally disrespect the what most people hold dear. Husban, watch your wife. Wife watch your back. As far as law enforcement, thieves wear many different clothings. I agree, come to the island. See things as they are. The caye is everthing there is in the world good and bad. If you came to make money there is a saying. To make a small fortune in Belize, bring a big one.

Dimples is a pessimist with personal problems. Personal [Man / Woman] relationships have nothing to do with life in Caye Caulker or anywhere else in the world, thus the term 'personal'.

Caye Caulker is an ideal destination to retire, however, I agree with other posts, (a) it is not for everyone (b) if you want to make a small fortune here, bring a big one...

What Caye Caulker offers is a personal (if not so private) life - quality of life. There is excellent balance here: excellent lifestyle at affordable costs. So you don't really need the small or large fortune, if your focus is on living a good 'quality of' life.

I'm happy.

I Love Caye Caulker! I don't have to work too hard (about 1 hr/day) for the past 8 years and still make enough to live comfortably. I go snorkelling at the reef a lot, fishing when I can, I have a few good friends, the weather is mostly good, the crime is petty and manageable, the new people (some ex-pats who feel they are the know it all of the island) suck and ruin the local vibe, but some blend in and manage to co-exist peacefully with the locals- not easy to get a job or make money if you are not connected somehow unless of course you are a land speculator and have $$$ to invest (land is still relatively cheap) whereby you could be rich in the next decade if you are not in a hurry for a return on your investment.
But all in all, the multitude of girls that come here open there legs immediately to the local casanova's and fall for their wonderful "lyrics" almost always get burned because before they are on their plane headed home, there is already somebody else warming the bed. Casanovas are everywhere in the world not just Belize.
But otherwise, be cautious before moving here, only because if you are planning on moving here with an attitude you might encounter a lot of resistance along your journey get chewed up and spat out by the locals. Anybody got milk?

What do you do for an hour a day to make a living these days? Still selling on the street? I haven't seen you around.
