Having lived in Chetumal for 2 years and now moving back to Caye Caulker, I agree with the opinion of... buy in Belize. Sam's Club has name brand good stuff, but by the time you pay shipping and duty, it will cost you more. Mexican made appliances are poorly constructed. And while Mexico will never run out of eggs, flour, beans and rice, the cost of living has skyrocketed to the point that in many ways it is cheaper to live in Belize now. Chetumal is great to go to for a spree, but don't go expecting to save lots of dollars any more. The exchange rate is down 15-20% and prices overall are up 25-50% over what we were getting 2 years ago. I would buy from Courts, pay a little more and get a warranty on everything electrical. I've used my warranty more than once, and they have always honored it.
