You'll enjoy Belize First if you ...

Are interested in living or retiring on the Caribbean Coast, where the sea is blue, the language is English, the price of land is still affordable (would you believe as low US$100 an acre?!?!), and the cost of living is surprisingly low.

Love diving, snorkeling, or fishing ... on the second-longest barrier reef system in the world.

Are intrigued by Mayan ruins, rain forests, and exotic wild life including the jaguar, ocelot, mountain cow, and howler monkey.

Enjoy traveling in an undeveloped, unpopulated land (fewer than 270,000 people in an area the size of Massachusetts) where the official language is English.

Love exploring and eco-traveling in a friendly, multi-cultural, peaceful, and democratic country still unspoiled by mass tourism.

Enjoy staying in small personality inns, jungle lodges, remote island resorts, and B&Bs... eating fresh local seafood and drinking ice-cold local beers and rums and other drinks (and, YES you can drink the water).

Expect your magazine to be literate, candid, and full of solid information.
