I have an oppurtunity for a good job in my field, that includes room and board. Due to the confidentiality, all I know right now is that it is located along New River, not far from Belize City. What I need to know- is what I have heard about the area in and around Belize city true, in regards to high crime, dirty conditions, and many "slum" areas? I am a middle-aged female who would not appreciate having to stay on the property where I work all the time, especially as I love the sea and water sports, as well as visiting different areas. I would not have my own transportation while there. Any input would really help. Thanks.
