hopefully someone will come along with good information but I have a vague recollection that legally you are on the hook for alot when you hire someone in belize.

On the mainland we have paid between 35 and 50 Bze dollars per day and included her breakfast and lunch. Pay varied on how thorough the person was. Now due to Bze laws you may have to pay SS in the person and paid hoidays as well. I believe it depends on hours per week pais and hours work to meet SS threshold

For a full day on the island $75BZ for an experienced, well-recommended housekeeper. If you are providing steady full time employment it would be a bit less but legally you will have to pay social security and abide by severance laws.

Very few people will work for just a couple of hours twice a month ........ its not just the two hours at your house, it the time it takes to get there and back and the other jobs they cannot do as a result.

its $30 US, or $15/hour......try to get someone here for that price! If you can afford to own a home there and are from away, S.H.A.M.E. O.N. Y.O.U. In the immortal words of a not so well liked Expat "YA get what ya pays for"

$60 BZD is a decent price for a housekeeper for a few times a month. Just be explicit that you expect XX # of hours for a day's pay. As Diane mentioned, a couple hour job is a lot more involved as the cleaner has to travel to and from the job etc - and it is not full time employment. As Simon stated - $75 BZD is standard these days for a part time person who comes in one day a week or only a day every other week. I gotta say with the salt, sand, dust, pollen and my cats - I could never get away with only having a deep clean once every 2 weeks.
