I'm trying to decide what items to ship to San Pedro versus shopping in Belize. I haven't been able to find a good list of import taxes on various products....just a little here and there. Anybody know a good source?
Thanks...Dave

Try our customs broker. Mr. Milin Gomez. Email: [email protected]

You won't get a list - you need to provide him with a list of what you want to bring - and he'll send back a message with the rate for each item.

I have found that no matter what the "official" rates are, but the time I bring in something I want, with shipping, duties, brokerage fees etc. I end up between 50 - 100% of the new value in the States. Needless to say, I only import things I really want.

Thats good info...Thanks. We own a lighting/home furnishings store here in Oregon so I thought with my cost being true wholesale I might come out alright. We have bought most of the basics in San Pedro but would really like to have some of our nice light fixtures, lamps, and ceiling fans down there. Shipping costs (Hyde Shipping) are manageable but the tariff and brokerage rates have been tough for me to nail down.
