How long does it take for a FedEx envelope to get from the States to San Pedro?

Fed Ex never takes more than 1 week. In general 5 days.

i got a package from Phoenix via fedex in 5 days over new years last year. Delivered to Caye Caulker which they cleared through customs for me.

Fast mail from the states is more reliable than Fedex. I have shipped hundreds of items both ways. Post office clears Customs as well.
Sometimes I had the same experience as Ron with Fedex, sometimes not.
Post office is cheaper too

Fed Ex depends on what day the item is shipped as the deliveries only leave Miami on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Since they changed hands they've been very bad about notification of items arriving in country and needing clearance. Not a big issue if you know something is shipping on a specific day and should be here on a specific day but if you are waiting on a back order or special order make sure you ask for a tracking number and keep on top of it. On at least 3 occasions I have had items sitting at FedEx for 2 to 3 weeks for that reason. Items over $1000 in value will not auto clear and you need a broker.

Most of my fedex packages track through Miami and then Guatemala before coming to Belize. It takes up to 24 hours for me to receive a package once it hits Belize.

As far as clearing goes, if you track it and have duty clearance prearranged it can be cleared within 24 hours most times.

I see that Mail Boxes Etc handles DHL. They automatically clear packages and call you when they are ready to be picked up in San Pedro. They have set fees and seem very efficient.

I have had many packages arrive at MBE and I wasnt expecting them so they were pleasant surprises.

They seem to clear packages once a week .

The post office has some type of express service, costs the same as fedex and dhl, but if the package is lost you cant track it til it is missing for over 30 day!

Thankfully I have never lost a package with Fedex or DHL although back a few years ago the DHL service provider on the island would hold itmes for ransom and threatened not to deliver them unless you paid a $10 delivery fee. That is no longer the case.
