bungle613. It's considerably cheaper than it was in the UK here - by a long shot. I'm not sure how it compares to Switzerland, but it seems that it would be much cheaper than Switzerland also. Rent depends on the quality of accommodation you require. You can get a room with a private bathroom for $600/month or an air conditioned apartment without a view for $14-1500/month, or an air conditioned one bedroom condo on the beach for $2000/month. There are a number of excellent accommodation agencies listed on AmbergrisCaye.com. You'll probably get the best selection of options from them.
