My Husband and I bought at The Cloister's and we are nearing completion yeah! But the question became how do we get some "stuff" out to the island? First I did some shopping comparison in Belize City at Mirab's and a few other places. I just went price shopping. I came home and compared apples to apples and found that what I could purchase in Belize and the exact same stuff in the states was a huge difference! $18,000 vs. $6,000 for the exact same stuff (Tv's, Serta beds etc.)
So I went looking into shipping and came across a website that listed Belizan's who live in the USA but do business down in Belize and I found a Shipper from Heaven!

Our first shipment was woth $6,000 and the cost from Illinois, to Miami via container on a train, to a ship out of Miami,to Belize City, to San Pedro, to our condo was $3,600! This included at duty and taxes!
All was delivered, nothing broken or missing, and we just sent our second shipment down with Mr. Gongora. He has family in Corazol who helped with the delivery. We will be in San Pedro in October when the second shipment arrives.
He lives in Northern Illinois and we live in southeast Wisconsin so it worked out very easy for us.
A very nice man to work with!
