Are there many places that offer monthly rates for 3-6 months at a time on Caye Caulker? My husband and I would like to do this in about 2 yrs and I am trying to figure out if there are places out there and how much they typically cost. The other thing is, we would be bringing up to 3 large dogs with us. If anyone has any inside info., please pass it along.

Thanks much!

That difficult, huh? Is it due more the the Owner being worried about potential damage? Just curious!

There are houses to find from April to November.
Nov. to Mar. it is much more difficult. Our place rents around US$700/mo. Most others cost more or are quite basic. You may not find choices Dec. to Mar. if it has to be seaside or airconditioned.

Bringing big dogs to the Caye is often a disaster for them.

First of all I have big dogs that were born here, Alot of the locals are afraid of dogs, actually screaming and running away , etc just at the sight of them without any signs of aggression, then at last count every dog here that has been tested has tic fever and most have heartworm. Treatment for these things here are different than in the States,,your normal flea and tic treatment does not work here.These things can be treated, but your basic over the counter flea collars ant meds dont work at all. I know you probably have intentions of keeping your dogs redistricted but its not unusual to have someone take a machete to them if they are scared. The climate can be an issue also. We also have no vet care here...not to scare you...if you were moving here permantly and dogs are family that would be another issue but just for a few months it may not be the best choice...

Hey Nessa! I am a local and I am NOT "afraid of big dogs, screaming and running away, etc just at the sight of them..."!!! Getting your dogs here might be a bit difficult, but once they are here, everything will be okay! I don't know what Cooper is coming with!! And we do have VETS that come here quite often as a matter of fact. There is a really nice lady, Madi Collins, and she is a registered Humane Society on the island. She takes care of the animals and brings a vet out here every two (2) weeks. Everyone knows that. So don't let anyone discourage you from bringing your dogs here. Just remember, once they are here, PLEASE try to keep them on a leash. We are trying to have people practice that on our island so as to avoid any problems! Hope to see you and your doggies soon! Take care...

My dogs are not super big. I have 2 65# golden retrievers and my old man Max who is a 90# lab/setter. Sadly, I don't think he will be around when we start our long-term stays away from home. I do have alot of worries about bringing my dogs to CC, however, I believe in responsible pet ownership and could never leave them behind. I work at a vet clinic, so I know a little about what my risks would be. Such a tough thing! I will definitely put their best interests first. Anyone know why the usual flea/tick treatments don't work there like they do here? I greatly appreciate all the info! This is stuff I need to know long before I make any decisions.
