The big "Blue Hole" and the largest barrier reef in the Northern hemisphere can be found in Belizean waters.
While some families go for vacation in tropical Belize, others go there for affordable, safe, off-grid living, in this English-speaking Latin-America country. At less than half the price of U.S. living, Belize's self-sustaining resources are highly prized, and suitable for, either a primary residence, vacation home, or a prepper's safe haven.
In Belize it's not uncommon to have a year-round garden growing in the front yard, along with a variety of free-range animals in the backyard. Everyone saves captured-rain-water in cisterns, and many take advantage of grid-free solar power from the equatorial sunshine (and it's not illegal either).
If this lifestyle is beckoning you and your family away from the poverty of over-taxed high-rise city dwellings, expensive food, water, and electricity, or you just need to feel free again, consider this your personal invitation to paradise~

Horses can provide emergency transportation, and they will mow the lawn.
