An Unconventional Retirement in Belize


At an age when most Americans are thinking about retirement, Macarena Rose made a radical move from Florida to Belize. A single mother to two biological and six adopted children, Macarena and her youngest 15-year-old daughter left the U.S. seven years ago to launch a new life in San Ignacio.

Rose visited Belize twice before the move. She first traveled with the Sentient Temple of Florida to San Ignacio, in Belize’s interior rain forest Cayo District, to participate in a workshop in April 2003. ''When I returned to Florida, I couldn't get the trip out of my mind,” Rose says. Six months later she and a friend traveled the length of this little Caribbean nation. “Watching a local parade in Belize one day, I was taken aback by the intimacy of the event,” she says. “It was a defining moment, one I will always look back on as the beginning of this new phase of my life.”

Rose returned to Florida to tell her children that, when the last one graduated from high school, she was moving to Belize. Her youngest daughter, Chiara, responded in a way her mother never could have predicted. “Why wait?” she asked. “Why not move to Belize right away?” They both moved abroad together

Rose sold her family home, shipped a container of belongings, and boarded a plane to Belize with her daughter and two dogs in tow. ''When you make your initial announcement that you're moving to another country, prepare yourself,” Rose cautions. “The reactions will be both pro and con.”

Now she’s running a real estate company, Rainforest Realty, in San Ignacio, hosting a weekly television show featuring local Belizeans, and coaching the Cayo’s semi-professional men’s soccer team. She also serves on the boards of two nonprofits: the Humane Society and the Winsom Foundation, an organization that aims to keep children in school and help them experience the arts.

Rose has reinvented her life in a beautiful, English-speaking country. She has also discovered that there’s more to life than being connected to a Blackberry. ''Maybe what appeals to me most living here is the chance that has been given to me to leave all the day-to-day stresses of my former life far behind,” she says. “I think many of us fantasize about finding a place with that small-town feeling, and that's just what you find throughout Belize.”

Living in Belize and Cooling off with Fresh Coconut Water E-mail

 Belize Real Estate - Belizean CowboysBelize Real Estate : Belizean Cowboy give us fresh Coconut WaterBelize Real Estate - Expat from Arizona drinking fresh coconut waterBelize Real Estate - Expats drinking Fresh Coconut Water


It was a hot but beautiful day here in Belize! We were out and about investigating the Belizean land and available properties for purchase. We decided to go check out a friends farm in the El Pilar area of Belize just outside of Bullet Tree Village. And Wow are we glad we did. We were hot and tired, but anxious to see the landscape of Belize and show our friends - future expatriates from Arizona - what Belize has to offer. We had the pleasure of viewing a beautiful farm, peering over the horizon at the magnificent views, and meeting a couple Belizean cowboys who showed us their gracious hospitality.

As we were all sharing stories and getting to know each other, the rains came for the afternoon. See it is rainy season here in Belize. The rainy season begins in June and ends in November. The big drops of rain were very refreshing as they cooled us off. And then the rain came down even harder, so we scurried under the nearest palm tree for a little cover. It was then that we were offered a drink of fresh coconut water. Our new cowboy friend took his machete and chopped a coconut from the tree. He then proceeded to chop the exterior skin until lancing the coconut in such a way that a hole was exposed to allow us to drink the water from the fresh coconut. I watched as he chopped each of us a fresh coconut. It was interesting how the water was not hot as you would think it would have been given the temperatures of the day. We all enjoyed our fresh drink under the very palm tree that had produced such a gift for us all. What might be considered a small gesture from a hospitable Belizean cowboy will be remembered always as one of our best life experiences here in Belize.

Living in Belize - clock

Latest news about Belize on Yahoo - some like what they read, others do not agree with the research in the article, some are optimistic and complementary, and some are not!

Here is what Expat Belize posted:

"Speaking from Belize.....

A quote from an Expat member of www.ExpatBelize.com "Belize is not for everyone - for some people it is everything!" 

As should be for anyone moving outside their home country to anywhere in the world - do your homework. Don't leave your brain at the border!  

Time is the common currency of all in the world. We all have 86,400 seconds each day to spend. Once they are gone - you do not get a second chance. So how do you want to live your life. Keep in mind what Anne Dillard said "How we live our days is how we live our lives" 

Manufacture your dream - go and do - be happy! 

If this leads you to Belize, then welcome. If it leads you to some other part of the world or to remain in your home country, that is wonderful too. For it is your dream!

Contribute to a better life for all while living your dream to the fullest.
