Yes, welcome aboard Philip. There are many threads on this site concerning finding a good boat at a good price
, including boats in the Caribbean
. As to learning to sail, Stillraining makes a good suggestion. Further, since there are often cruising boats that stop in Belize
, you may wish to make the acquaintance of some cruisers and offer some free labour (or assistance in shopping/transportation onshore) in exchange for a daysail or two. Apart from time on the water
, their experiences/advice should prove beneficial in pursuing your dream.
