If anyone thinks beachfront prices in Belize are high, check out the "house of the week" in the Wall Street Journal yesterday (Friday, June 17, in the Personal Journal section). It's a 20,000 sq. ft. house on 2 acres on the beach in Barbados on the market now for US$58 Million. (Barbados in the southern Caribbean is a little over twice as large as Ambergris Caye.) Several other houses are for sale in Barbados for over US$50 million, and one estate is for sale for over US$100 million.
