A 70s Couple to retire in Belize

Cecilia and Robert, a 70-something couple from Michigan, have decided to reinvent their lives somewhere where they can live with peace and at the same time enjoy mother-nature. After a few years of research this couple have decided that The Jewel is the best place for them at least for the meanwhile. 

After years of research and consideration, Cecilia and Robert are focused on moving to Belize. They think this could be a place where they want to live, at least part-time. But what really attracted them to Belize, over all the other countries they considered, was finances. “We aren’t wealthy people, but we’ve managed what we have,” says Robert. “We see this new adventure as a next step in that process.”
On their first scouting trip to Belize, the couple focused on Ambergris Caye. “We loved the island and really enjoyed our time there,” says Cecilia. “Mostly, though, that first visit to Ambergris was important because it helped us to realize that we do not want to be on the beach. We’re not lay-out-on-the-beach people.” They also found the Ambergris Caye area, around San Pedro where the expat community is centered, to be noisier than they would like. "We know that we want a quieter atmosphere,” she says.
For their second visit to Belize this month, Cecilia and Robert are planning to visit the country’s Cayo District. This part of Belize is nothing like Ambergris Caye. While Ambergris is a Caribbean island, offering a quintessentially Caribbean lifestyle, Cayo, in Belize’s interior, is a rain forest with rivers and mountains. This area has a much quieter, simpler, and more relaxed way of life, perhaps just what Cecilia and Robert are looking for.
The couple is taking their time researching retirement spots that might meet their needs. “We’ve been thinking about this, researching, and planning for more than two years,” Cecilia says. “This is a process. One thing builds on another, and the next thing builds on that.
