Belize City, Belize

I've been from the U.S thru Mexico, Panama ,Costa Rica, Honduras, Columbia and now in Belize looking for a place to live and what i can tell you is Belize is the only place i've felt really safe, although Belize city was a bit rough and i wouldn't live there anyway. I've purchased property in the sanctuary Belize gated area between Placentia and Hopkins . The other thing i can verify is that the local Belizians have welcomed me everywhere ive gone and i feel the friendliest people in Central American live in this country .

Wow... well, you just helped me decide Belize is OFF the list. You really should read what you wrote. You effectively validated all the bad things being said about your country in this one sentence, let alone your entire post.

"Four races that despise each other?", "most Creoles hate Americans?" - give me a break! As a Belizean I can tell you we're the ones who should be complaining. Americans buy sic.(swindle) up all the land from poor desperate Belizeans, sell them at exorbitant prices that over 90% of the population would never be able to afford and then have the nerve to still complain about how "bad" they've got in Belize.
As for crime and corrupt cops I don't deny that they're out there but let's be realistic for a second - there are umpteens of Americans that go to Belize to set up drug smuggling operations, molest our kids and rape our natural resources. As far as I'm concerned if a few white trash get ripped off from time to time that's not injustice - that's our just desserts!
I see locals are jealous of outsiders makeing money. Locals should start own business and make money. False that Americans molest kids and smuggle drugs.

Ok, so living in amerika where a cop will fine you for not protecting your self with a seat belt then arrest you if you dont pay, then kill you if you will not go to jail.. This is freedom??

You run the risk of being robed, raped or killed in any big us city. Besides, our crime reports are GREATLY under reported!!

That is what we are talking about, Belize has several times the rate of crime compared to the inner cities of the United States based on its size an population.

Read the Belize newspapers and go to the crime sections in those papers, see what is being talked about. They admit this in the papers, some papers going so far to call call the country crime ridden and immoral.

Getting a seat belt ticket is a wee little bit better then getting your head cut off by a machete.

I have my place in Belize for many years. Have been there about ten times for vacations, usually three weeks each time. People are very pleasant.
Sure if you like to run your life in Belize the way you run it in US ripping and cheating everyone on your way - they will do same to you.

Please let me know "How do Belizeans feel about Canadians"?
Thank you for all the info and your time.
They dont care if your Canadian, if your white and they will hate you too! Stay in Canada where you people say everything is better ok, just because your Canadian doesnt mean crap to a murderer!

Is it possible to live amoungst the Amish or Mennonites and be safe? Would you be welcomed to buy farmland, say as in Orange Walk and farm amoungst them and be safe? We are farmers and did consider buying farm land in Belize because we are sick of the politics in America and want to carry a dual citizinship (U.S. & Belize). Would surely appreciate your comments! Help us out because we are not sure where a safe place to live outside U.S. would be? I understood they also needed teachers and would like to teach there ...
...

TRY, URUGUAY FARM LAND NEAR MALDONADO, SAN CARLOS, ATLANTIDA, ANYWHERE BETWEEN PUNTA DEL ESTE' AND MONTEVIDEO.....VERY SAFE,VIRTUALLY NO DISEASE, WE SEARCHED ALL OF THE CENTRAL AMERICAS,MEXICO AND SOUTH AMERICAS IN ALL AREAS,

MEDICAL,CRIME,WEATHER,POLITICS ,RELIGION, DISEASES,AND THEY DO WANT AND LOVE TEACHERS TO TEACH ENGLISH OR EVEN TUDOR.

TO WORK HERE YOU NEED A "CEDULA". WE MOVED HERE IN MALDONADO 3 YRS AGO HAVE 6 ACRES AND LOVE IT..

MONTEVIDEO IS A LARGE CITY 1.5MILLION 1/2 OF THE COUNTRIES POPULATION....THERE IS FARM LAND EVERY WHERE OUTSIDE OF THIS CITY.

THE ONLY THING IS ELEC. IS EXPENSIVE.....BUT YOU CAN DO SOLAR, IF YOU PLAN TO STAY LONG ENOUGH TO BALANCE OUT THE COST.

YOU CAN DO A WELL, AND USE WOOD STOVES FOR HEATING IN THE WINTER WHICH NEVER FREEZES HERE, BUT IT DOES GET COLD AND WET JUNE,JULY,AUG....AND IN THE 80F'S JAN,FEB.

WE GROW OUR VEGETABLES AND HAVE LAYING HENS AND SELL THE EGGS.:)

A truer statement i have not seen on these Belize over USA posts..Those who seek to leave USA purely for the cost I understand.. but those such as myself that want freedom from tyranny and a fine tropical weather too..I will give Belize and her people a real good chance..

America was once free but back then it was not so safe..One had to be prepared..Are you saying you want the freedom of Belize to be replaced by the tyranny of so many other micromanaged and insanely taxed nations..?..Speaking in caps is shouting..about something you have no real experience with..?
