Does anyone know how far it is from Belize City to this new Wal-Mart over the border in Mexico? Has anyone been there? If anyone is going would you look to see if they have Futons??

It's an hour and a half to the border from Belize City, border crossing the time varies and ten minutes into Chetumal. Don't know about any new Walmart but you can find futons at Mirab on the Western Highway or at least they did carry them.

Also Graniels in San Pedro make/sell futons.

Don't forget to add 70% import duty when bringing in from Mexico.


Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

Where did you get that rate? It's not the official rate is it?

If its the same "Walmart" next to the mall, you are better off at Sam's in Chetumal. Mirab has great futons-one style with springs and very comfortable and lots easier than shopping in Chet.

Dave's furniture World used to have inexpensive futons, or you can have the mennonites make you one.

No, it was an exaggeration to make the point that it may not be cheaper to save a few bucks in mexico for large items.
