Good morning to all of you!
My husband got a job offer in Belize and we are now considering all the pros and cons of moving to Placencia. We have a 3-year old daughter and have been already living abroad for many years.
We spent many years in Asia (Maldives, Thailand, Bali) and returned to Italy (I'm Italian and my husband is Swiss) 3 years ago, then moved to Switzerland almost 2 years ago.
My husband will be working all day while I will be home and doing some free lance graphic design jobs from home.
I'd like to understand how is life there... and I have few questions :-)
- is there a good community? How hard is to make friends?
- Does anybody have any feedback about the Montessori school? How is the hospital?
- we'd like to find a nice house/apartment not too far from the school. Have you got any contacts/advice to give us?
- could I stay without a car? My husband would have one and use it for work, while I want to understand if I would need one or not...
- cost of living? taxes?
I lived for several years on a small island in the Maldives, therefore isolation doesn't scare me. I'm mainly concerned for our daughter, I want her to be happy and to grow up in a place that is safe and inspiring. I want to understand if Placencia could be it.
Any info is more than welcome.
Thank you very much in advance for your kind replies.
