Moving to Central America - where to go??

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 with 2 small children that want to move to a central or south america!
We have decided to do a 6 week trial run on an island to see if we actually can handle it.
Not having visited all countires in the area, can anyone recommend an area for us to check out. We do not want anything too touristy but with small children we still want good health care and the basics.
This is what we are specifically are looking for:
- 2 bdrm apartment with pool for under $800 a month
- safe (family) neighborhoods - low crime rate!!
- walking distance to beaches and markets
- good bus system (or reasonable car rental rate)
- nice snorkel and swim beaches
- clean water
- english preferred but not necessary
We are open to suggestions of countries and specific areas in these countries!
Any thoughts on this or direction to other forum threads is MUCHLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
