Moving to Caye Caulker in a few months. Is there somewhere I can find out what it would cost to bring with me different items such TV, kitchen mixer, microwave, nail guns, air compressor, computer, printer, and such things like that? Have no idea it if is going to be worth it to bring these things or buy them in Belize thanks

Small appliances are affordable here - suggest a trip to Mirab for all of those. Computers have no duty, just sales tax (12.5%) - definitely better to buy abroad and bring in. Bring a supply of ink as well because the inks you purchase here are usually for a "Latin American" edition of printer and won't be compatible with one purchased in the US or Canada. Tools are available here, not sure of duties or comparable prices.
I'd do both... I'd purchase the computer, and nail gun is U.S. MUCH cheaper and a lot of ink as Diane said... Compressor in Belize because of size. If it's a 55-65" TV I would definitely purchase from Amazon Prime and ship free to Miami for delivery to a customs agent. I did that with a 65" TV.
