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

I am originally from Belize. I now live in Toronto but will move back in about 4 years. I might be able to help with some of your questions

Hi Bruce,
English is the primary language. Spanish is a nice to have to not necessary. We have been going to Belize for 13 years and have recently purchased a property in Sittee (also from Toronto). The process is relatively painless but trying to transfer funds proved challenging. There are quite a few Canadian/ American real estate agents down there. We used Remax. I would highly recommend visiting the country before settling on anything. Although small, there is a lot to Belize. We eventually narrowed down the area, booked a 5 day trip and had prepared a list of all the listings we had found. Our agent took us around and also added a few properties that weren't on our list. I would also encourage you to look into the Retiree program they have

Hope this helps

In which area do you live now?

We are from Hamilton Ontario and purchased a home and 4 acres on the hummingbird highway between Belmopan and Dangriga in Nov of 2017 This stretch of highway is the most beautiful part of Belize in my opinion. Crime seems to be the Worst in Belize city and In Corozal district because it is close to the Mexican border. The Islands in the north attract a lot of the bad elements because of the amount of tourists. We are in a rural area. about 15 minutes from the coast and about 30 min. from Hopkins Beach. we have had very little problems with crime Petty theft but that is to be expected in a third world country. English is the legal language of the country and all documentation pertaining to purchase of property is in English. It took us about 7 months to receive title on our property from the government after purchase of the property. There is a little more rain in the south but it also helps to keep it cooler we are at the edge of the mountains so the elevation also helps with the heat.

Welcome to the forum.
If you are considering 'mainland' Belize, then probably Hopkins or Placencia, or somewhere in between. The south has 'better' water than the north. However, Consejo, Sarteneja and Corozal can all give you water views of the northern bay. It will depend on your liking of the specific areas. Good luck in your search.

"ocean view without being next to the ocean" is a tall order in belize..  all the coast line I know consists of coastal flats. with minimum elevation.    there are inland hills with a distant view, but no facilities,
         Happy to hear if you are successful, Good luck with your search.
