This list has been compiled by Volunteers serving in [[Belize]] and is based on their experience. Use it as an informal guide in making your own list, bearing in mind that experience is individual. There is no perfect list! You obviously cannot bring everything we mention, so consider those items that make the most sense to you personally and professionally. You can always have things sent to you later. As you decide what to bring, keep in mind that you have an 80-pound weight limit on baggage. The less you bring, the easier it will be for <span class="plainlinks">[http://www.peacecorpswiki.org/Brenda_Jaudon<span style="color:black;font-weight:normal; text-decoration:none!important;  background:none!important; text-decoration:none;">century 21 broker properti jual beli sewa rumah Indonesia</span>] you to travel to and within Belize. Do not do all your packing in one day. Fill your bags and then return later to reevaluate your decisions. And remember, you can get almost everything you need in Belize.

The climate of Belize is hot and humid most of the year, so bring lightweight and sturdy clothing that breathes (cotton or a cotton blend are recommended) and is easy <span class="plainlinks">[http://goo.gl/oj60r<span style="color:black;font-weight:normal; text-decoration:none!important;  background:none!important; text-decoration:none;">century 21 broker properti jual beli sewa rumah Indonesia</span>] to hand-wash and line-dry. Because it can get cool during the winter months at higher elevations, bring a few clothing items to layer.  Lightweight rain gear is helpful during the many rainy days that occur during the wet season.
+
==Peace Corps News==
  
Because clothes generally have to be washed in cold water with strong detergents, clothes tend to wear out quickly. As many Belizeans iron their clothes, you may want to purchase an iron and ironing board after settling in to your site.
+
Current events relating to Peace Corps are also available by [[News | country of service]] or [[News by state|your home state]]
  
Although you can buy almost anything in Belize, cosmetics, toiletries, clothes, and shoes—many of which are imported from the United States—are expensive.
