They can thrive here while Angus and such can’t make it. The beef here is very healthy, but very tough. It is hard to find a cut of […]

A/C or Windows

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 […]

No A/C for Me

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 […]

A/C or not

Never have seen carpet here

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! […]

The Breeze Makes all The Difference

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.
