This article tells the story of a couple who retired and moved to Belize.
Fifteen years ago, Diane and David Hisle took a vacation from the Caribbean island of Nevis to visit a friend in the interior of Belize. At the time they were living on a 65-foot schooner called The Alexander Hamilton. Life on board was good, and the couple had no plans for a change. Yet what they found in the small riverside town of San Ignacio enchanted them so much that they never left.
“Traveling inland to San Ignacio opens the door to a totally different experience. Iguanas, toucans, and Mayan ruins are as much a part of Belize as the diving, snorkeling, and fishing that the country is known for,” says Diane.
