Your lifestyle is going to play a big role in average costs. Do you like to go out to dinner often? Do you like to go to social events? Are you a home body? Do you use air-conditioning 24/7, do you need very high internet speeds? Do you like to cook and eat local food (chicken, rice and beans) or are you a gourmet chef?

You should be able to comfortably live within a budget of $1,500 USD per month excluding rent and depending on your lifestyle you can adjust that up or down.

Curious what high speed internet would run down in Ambergris Caye since opening a business and think will need high speed internet there and possibly a home. Moving down soon.

There are a bunch of different speed plans. I think they start around $40 USD per month and go up from there. I believe I use a plan that costs around $100 USD per month.

What type of business are you opening?

The cost of living in there depending on how you want to live. Some people live luxurious life in there and some live simple. People do spend $100 (USD) a day some lives within $10 a day. So its all depends on your way of living.

One thing I canít see in the conversation is average price of home insurance for a new home on the beach

If you can afford a new house on the beach... you can afford the insurance.

Insurance for an all-concrete beach home runs about 1% of value insured. This is for all-perils - fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake etc, with a very reasonable deductible.
