KBG, how long are you coming down for? I just moved down here with my dog and cat, and believe me it isn't worth the hassle unless you are going to be here for an extended period (and yes I love my pets, but the actual trip and adjustment was very stressful for them). I had to get vet certificates (must be an intl certified vet), rabies certificate, make sure you check with whatever airline you are flying on well in advance, and an import permit from BAHA in Belmopan - pls note that all the information that is currently on line is not correct pricewise. I paid $75 US for each pet and I had all the correct permits - supposedly you can bring them in without the Belizean permit (I wasn't willing to take that risk), but it will cost you even more. As for bringing them back into the US, I'd check with US customs or even SAGA down here might be able to help you as they adopt pets out to people who take them back to the states. Hope this helps!
