There are pluses to either way you go. With A/C you cut down on the dust blowing into the house. The A/C reduces the humidity in the air. On the other hand A/c is expensive to run. I have friends that have a foam house. They have A/C, and because of the insulation factor of […]
Though A/C may be nice, in my case it would put a hit on the budget. I leave my windows open all year. I only close them because of rain. The breeze that flows through the windows is delicious. Even when it’s 85 outside, the breeze keeps things cool. Most homes have ceiling fans to […]
Most homes in the Corozal area and probably Belize are not air conditioned. There are several things to consider pro and con about A/C. Homes are not insulated, so it takes more energy to cool homes here. Electricity is not cheap here. There are two kinds of A/C units available here. One uses less power […]
The men I have seen do concrete work are true masters. There is a new gas station just built close to me. The concrete area is huge. The men poured the concrete using a commercial cement mixer. Not a truck mounted cement mixer. They poured bag after bag, and sand to mix up a batch. […]
I have yet to see carpet in a house in Corozal and maybe Belize. With the humidity and dew points so high, carpet would mildew quickly. If a house had full time A/C, carpet could be a possibility. A while back I saw an add for carpet cleaning here. It must have been a joke! […]
Corozal Bay is the catalyst for providing a wonderful breeze in the Corozal area. Having a home with windows facing the bay or the wind, and windows on the other side of the house will provide a cooling breeze all year through. If you are looking to buy or build, keep wind direction in mind.
The Corozal Area has almost any living style you could want. Living in Corozal Town puts you right in the middle of the action. There are many homes and subdivisions around Corozal Bay. There are two fresh water lagoons, both named Four Mile Lagoons. One is between Corozal Town and the Mexican border. The other […]
Corozal area is a great place to live. Corozal Bay is ever changing and is easily taken for granted. Corozal is located in the northern part of Belize yet very accessible by road or boat. It is very easy to go to Mexico, the Free Zone, and cities to the south.
If you come to Belize, speed bumps are everywhere. I counted 32 bumps from Corozal to Belize City, and I think they added more since I counted them. Because there are very few Police cars on the road, speed bumps are used to reduce speed. The usual places for speed bumps are at schools and […]
What type of buyer are you? Do you jump in the pool, or do you put a toe in? Most people here will say to come and rent for a year before you buy. A lot depends on your mindset. Checking to see if you like it, is the way to go for many. On […]
