You don't give the dimensions, but I bring mine with me as a checked bag when I fly down.

Took 28 days from England, no problem. Took a few days and a few trips to Belize City when the box's turned up to get them to San Pedro.

I would fedex the box to Hyde Shipping in Miami.

Hyde would charge around $65 to ship it to Belize City. You'll have to clear it through customs once it arrives. Sometimes you can clear it by yourself if you have receipts, if not you'll have to get a broker to clear it for you.
You can call Hyde and see what time their vessel leaves for Belize City, takes about 3 days to get there roughly. The boat leaves around twice a month. I havent used Hyde in 5 years, so their prices and departure times may have changed.
