I am looking for info about staying in Belize, renting an apartment or house, at first part time but possibly full time.
All the advertisements say it is great. However, when I was checking out rentals, I see things like, flushing toilets, burglar bars, razor wire, and safe neighborhood. Someone was even talking about getting gun permits, what ????. I see pictures of houses raised up off the ground, why? Can some one who has been there help me out with info. Is there a Canadian community ? What area to be avoided? What about local transportation ? Please reply with a phone number, I prefer to talk to people rather then type.........................Thanks

51 single dude from Toronto and spend time in Miami.
Looking for a change and want to know the best place to recon. Belize.
Where is there a place like Miami... quiet but a short walk to the action, beachy but not too primitive, best looking girls, 420, good eats.  I want to go for a couple of weeks and see as much as possible to decide where to live if I decide to move there.
Air b&b?  Hotel? Private villa?  Air con, internet, TV, transportation.
Palcencia? Corozal? Cayo?  Would love a local expat in my similar situation to give some valuable intel.  I wanna hit the ground there before years end so let's start chatting.
Thanks to all in advance.

Welcome to the forum, you will get a wide variety of answers to all questions you might think to ask here. The truth is everyone's reality is different and only an extended visit away from the conveniences of the resorts will answer your questions based on your expectations and comfort level.

As a Canadian that moved here two years ago from Innisfil (just north of you), I would say good luck finding Miami here, but then most of us were looking for something a little different when choosing Belize. The closet area to fit that discription would be San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, but you will pay a premium to live there so again it will depend on budget and your personal reality. It has the beachy areas, lots of good eats, a vibrant nightlife, and as far as the best looking girls go, well that is all perspective isn't it. I find at 55 that there are less and less "so called ugly" girls in the world. lol. That been said you will generally find the people of Belize to be warm, friendly, helpful, and welcoming.

Belize has been everything we had hoped for but living in "paradise" does come with the price of giving up a lot of things that we take for granted in Canada, so again ultimately coming and living here for a period of time is the only way to really know if Belize is the right choice for you.

I would be happy to connect and share our experiences either by email or video chat to help you make an informed decision (Contact request sent) on Belize as a retirement option.

The best place to find Canadians is Canada and the best place to find Miami is Miami
