You can get everything, including American, Canadian, and any other radio stations through the internet here in Belize. I listened to my Canadian news stations through the Internet. Most people have Sirius XM satellite radio down here in Belize, too.
You can also use Pandora here in Belize. It is blocked in some countries, but not in Belize. We had Skype blocked here for a long time, but now it is all unblocked. Everybody has Pandora. A lot of people hook up their HD TV with Apple TV down here, too and they turn their Internet into smart TV and through your smart TV, you get Pandora. I listen to a lot of podcasts and I have TuneIn Radio as an app on my smart phone, so I can go to whatever you want and hear what I want.
People have data plans to pick up the Internet, but for the most part almost all resorts have hot spots and most of the restaurants have free Wi-Fi now, because they know that people will sit there all afternoon drinking coffee and ordering things because they've got Wi-Fi to use.
If you are nowhere near a hot spot, you can use your data plan, which can get expensive, but there is always a way around that with the new “Mifi.” Mifi is like a personal Wi-Fi, so you walk around with your own hotspot. It looks like a thick credit card. You stick it in your purse or your pocket. It is a lot cheaper than a data plan, but the charge could also depend on where you are. I have friends in Europe who pay a buck and get 4g. Here in Belize, I pay essentially more than a buck for it.
You can also use Viber or Skype through your phone to stay connected.
