My wife and I are keeping that one as an option.
A friend of mine checked out Belize, planning on moving there. While there he visited a church and met a number of its members. A young girl who attended the church with her dad was kidnapped and a few days later found dead. The local police barely seemed interested in investigating, and my friend decided Belize wasn’t for them.
Now, far more egregious crimes happen in America daily and there are plenty of corrupt LE departments and agencies, so who’s to say Belize LE is worse than ours?
At any rate, my friend gave up on the idea of Belize and now lives in Costa Rica.
