San Pedro is a great place to live!!! it's very tourist oriented and very safe. Students from the other schools actually come to san pedro on the weekends, because they bored out of their minds and plus Belize "mainland" is rough and inhospitable. I'm a clinicial student at MUA belize, which is an accredited school and already has it's own permanent campus.mua belize has been in san pedro close to 6 years now. BE VERY CAUTIOUS and weary of these "new schools" popping up, they do not have credentials and are at best temporary. plus living in belize mainland is risky, high crime, disturbances, haressment, where' you'll find no such thing on the island of ambergris caye.
