12 thoughts on “The Bad of Belize- why life in Belize isn’t always Paradise

  1. Fabulous I love to hear the truth,, my wife and I are planning to retire to Belize. Most of the realtors ,,well all of the realtors say how beautiful it is they never tell you the drawbacks. Of course they wouldn’t ,,selling that’s their job. Stay in touch with me. I would love to hear more.

    1. Oh my gosh yes! haha realtors in Belize be like “oh yes, local school is lovely. police are very prompt with response. village clinic provides top notch medical care” NO the heck NO NO NOPE.

  2. Spot on!
    I have lived here for 12 years full time after moving down from Canada and this is absolutely 100% correct

    1. Oh wow, 12 years! I bet you could add a few more to this list with 12 years under your belt, but obviously the good is outweighing the bad for you because you’re still here!

    1. I mean, isn’t it obvious? ALL the rest of it. No place is perfect and I could probably write a hundred more posts on ‘what’s bad about Belize’ but I could also write a thousand more on what we love. People stay until the frustrations outweigh the rewards and everyone’s scale loads differently

  3. You should have written this sooner, I first came to Belize in January 2021 and it led to absolutely ruining my life, being scammed, losing everything, and becoming a hateful racist person.

    1. I was planing on going to Belize but after reading all this i think i would rather Go on a cruise

      1. haha! Well cruises ARE great (I mean who doesn’t love the ease and convenience of an all-inclusive-pre-planned-itinerary with all the bells and whistles and infrastructure and amenities) and if you just want a vacation that is 100% probably the way to go. Belize is a diamond in the rough (sometimes it can be quite “rough”) but it is beautiful and authentic and wild. It is more of a destination for independent adventures- for “travelers” as opposed to “vacationers” No place is perfect but we still call it paradise
