An apartment with one bedroom and one bathroom that is suitable for a couple and roughly around 600 square feet, could cost as low as US $500 a month up to maybe $1,000 per month here in Ambergris Caye. A two-bedroom apartment usually starts at $1,100 up to $2,000 or more depending on the resort or the apartment and where it is located. If you are looking for a three-bedroom apartment, it would be around $1,200 to $1,500 per month to rent on a long term basis. These would be furnished units but utilities are usually not included in the rent because electricity can be expensive and if the renter just leaves their air-conditioning on the whole day, it can be too expensive for the landlord.
There are a few places in Ambergris Caye where they do have electricity included. Generally, electricity can cost as little as $50 a month and you could go up to $500 or $600 a month depending on how much you use your air-conditioning and if you leave your electronic devices on all the time. Water is usually around $50 per month. Cable is only $22 per month. For Internet, you pay for speed here but you do not pay for usage. For 4 mbps, you would pay around $150 to $200 a month. It is not cheap but you have unlimited usage so you are not capped if you are downloading a lot of stuff.
