Belize is beautiful and a popular Expat destination because English is spoken there. Sunny, tropical country where the people are friendly and fresh fruits are plentiful. but after some time, we realized Belize was not for us.
We loved Costa Rica. Wonderful people, great food, very laid back and a great Expat community. Costa Rica is especially good for folks looking to retire. Live on the beach or in the mountains, Costa Rica has it all.
