We purchased land on Long Caye at Lighthouse reef and escrow took 6 month. We started escrow in July 2000 and received our title right before X-mas 2000. I guess things just take longer in Belize. They told us the Minister of Land was on vacation for a while and no one else does his job while he is gone. I heard right now he is on vacation in the US again. But once you get your paperwork it is very official. We had to get tons of signatures notarized and I am a pro at thumb printing now.
