Belize and even Costa Rica are likely nice places to visit during winter.  Since Belize is less developed, it is even cheaper than Costa Rica, too.  I have family that has lived about 45 minutes from the Canadian border for decades.  They usually go on a vacation or two during winter to HI, FL or the Caribbean.

Reasons for choosing Belize as a second FSP:

Thanks for this post.

As I continue to inquire into my own future as a voluntaryist, the option of simply abandoning the United Police State of America has tickled the back of my mind. I keep asking myself "Is this really my country any more?"  My only real tie to the US is the coincidence of my birth.

Like you, I also see Belize as a possible alternative.

I wonder if trying to effect a Free State NH project in Belize would be worthwhile? The more expatriates, the more possibility in effecting the govt. structure, perhaps? Or maybe just a huge coopertive land buy as a freestanding community?  (I say "land buy AS IF I actually have money!).

The more I think about it, the more I realize the US is a crumbling Roman Empire that may soon (if not already) reach the point of no return. http://www.dollarvigilante.com/blog/2012/2/28/the-decline-and-fall-of-the-roman-denarius.html

Starting over seems more rational all the time. Maybe as a Costa Rican citizen with dual Dominican Republic passport? (and yes I know I am a sovereign indiviudal but I have to use labels like "citizen" in a practical sense).

SIDENOTE: Why was the final link listed as "reason not to..?" Because of the possibility of being a tourist trap?

No, of being eaten by hungry sharks.  We have lawyers here in the States.

I've always thought of a Free Nation Project as more of a backup effort, rather than the real deal.  It would be easier to retire and/or start a business there.

Extremely restrictive. You have to establish a need to get a license and even then your choices are significantly limited, they dictate the calibers available to the sheeple.

One option is Honduras which is looking at charter cities right now.

I think the key component in a freedom project such as this is the ability to affect public policy in a meaningful way. As such, it always makes sense to move to a place where most migrants could vote in a reasonable amount of time.

The single element most people need in order to move is opportunity. Are there jobs/entrepreneurial opportunities in Belize?
