Let us frame the reasons for the move to Belize:

    • Been there, and love it!
As tourists, we have traversed the country, from the rain forests and mountains, to the cayes. Enjoyed the lull of Howler monkeys as they claim their evening territories, stepped over tarantulas, stood with mouth agape as the toucans and parrots flew overhead. Climbed the Mayan temples and envisioned the ancient culture. Cave tubing, snorkeling with the nurse sharks and sting rays, horseback riding, hiking, and just kicking back and enjoying the locals.
What’s not to love about Belize?
Weather, eco-lots of stuff, Mayan ruins galore, "new" wildlife to get to know, warm Caribbean waters, the people!, rain forests, mountains, beaches, islands, rough roads, laid-back lifestyle, rivers, caves, cenotes. Lots of things to do—or not!

    • Empty nest!
Our children will no longer be at home with us. Our son has graduated from Belmont University and seeking gainful employment. Our daughter has signed with the US Navy.
    • Downsize!
Goes with the territory! Our house sold in March 2012. We are renting an apartment with our son. This will give us a stateside address until we settle completely in Belize.
    • Early retirement!
Woo Hoo!! Tired of the rat race, stress and wish to slow down—
