My wife and I are looking at the hopeful possibility of moving to Caye Caulker full time. We already bought a lot there to build a house on.
we would like to also build two small cabanas on the lot that we could rent to tourists. start a little business and make a few extra dollars.
does anyone know the process, cost for fees, time involved to get a license etc.
we would be open to hiring a local gal for room cleaning if that would help us get a business license.
anyone know how this all works?

If you are going to manage it yourself you need to get work permits. Your other option is to turn the management over to a local management company for a percentage.

Check with the BTB for regulations on tourist rentals.
The business will need a hotel license, issued by BTB. Not expensive.
You will have to meet certain minimum standards and there is a booklet that outlines these, also available from BTB.
As noted by Nicolle, if you work you need a work permit or residency.
Employees must be legally allowed to work, so check their documents before hiring. Also strongly recommend getting a police report on employes who go into guests rooms.
You will need to register your business for Taxes as well. business tax and hotel tax.
None of this is all that hard to do. Enjoy!!
