Belize Yacht Club was the only one ......... not sure what the situation is there now.
Simon is our resident boating expert - maybe he has some helpful info?

I would contact Belize Yacht Club directly to see what their status is. Don't be fooled by the name, it's just a dock with no facilities. I've heard of transient boaters being turned away from there.

I don't know about other docks but the ECP for our pier permit prevents us from having persons living aboard the boats even short-term.

If you plan on staying long term you'll also have to pay a yearly temporary import duty on the boat. I'm not sure what the time limitation is on a cruising permit, probably 90 days.
