Retire to Belize

Yahoo news may not be the best but bits and pieces prove "useful"...

Take this story for example, it is about a couple who retire and move to Belize and live off of a measely $1500 per month.

I found this little section of the story to be of particular interest:
Quote:
One of the most appealing things about Belize as an overseas retirement choice is that it can make sense even if you're nowhere near conventional retirement age. Through Belize's Qualified Retired Persons program you can establish foreign residency as young as age 40.
Retire that cheap, at only age 40? What do I need to qualify?

In case others wonder the same, here is where you can start looking:

Re: Retire to Belize

Belize. All that seems to glitter is not always gold.
I have been there a few times, from north to south and east to west, and I am not talking about the cayes.
Belize really needs to be given a lot of thought. It really is a country that is still experiencing a lot of trouble. The capital, Belize (City), is nothing short of a crime ridden cesspool that should be avoided at all costs, and that is their capital.
The people, or the ones not trying to rip you off, are beautiful and warm like people everywhere but it will be hard to tell who they are and regardless of where you are physical and property security will always be an issue.
IMHO a move to Belize really needs to be scruntinized carefully.
