“I’ve bought land in western Belize and am building an earth-bag house there. I plan to move half-time to Belize, but can’t get consistent information on how to set up a bank account or access my money while I am there. I have a savings and checking account in the United States and a credit card. Can you advise me?”

Luckily Belize is one of the easiest and safest places in the world to set up a bank account (banking privacy still exists here), and you have many options available to you. Caye Bank, which we’ve worked with in the past, is one we recommend for its ease of doing business. You can set up an account here from anywhere in the world.
