  1. Hi Tacogirl, my name is Sierra and I am a florida native. My husband and I want to move to belize. Any suggestions before we take the plung. How is the medical field? law enforcement? Do you suggest saving any amount of money to move with? Thank you ahead of time from one dream liver to another!

  2. Will do Michele – be seeing you soon.

    Hi Sierra – best thing to do is plan a scouting trip then you can check into all areas you are considering first hand. Many jobs here are not high wages or would go to a Belizean first and often people opt for starting something up or buying an existing business that is for sale already. Hope that helps.
