It has been my experience that the best way to go about doing the design is to have someone in your home country (US or canada) do the design of the place and then when you get the design you want you can have someone here to the engineering plans. In general you will find more creative people in those places and then simply have the blue prints done here.

I disagree:
1) The registered architects in Belize are for the most part, educated/degreed in the U.S.& Canada and since they live here, they will have a better feel for a Caribbean style than an architect up north.
2) It's not practical for an architect to design without pyhsically seeing the bldg site.
3) Changes are not very practical without the architect to be available on site.
4) Less bldg expense in the long run. They know the real bldg costs here.
See what the Belize architects have to offer, then decide.

You can almost tell by looking at some of these resorts that the architects had no concept of Belize culture or climate.
Take only pictures leave only bubbles

Cracked up---there are a few good design/builders on this island that have proven themselves. They may not belong to the almighty self absorbed architects club but they get things done. Focus on the planes and leave the building to us.
