Is the cost of living in Belize high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Belize, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Belize is generally quite reasonable, especially when compared to its surrounding countries. Depending on the city and lifestyle, the cost of rent can vary from relatively low to quite expensive. Utility bills, transportation costs, and food items generally tend to be quite affordable as Belize has lower costs for imports than other countries in Central America. Additionally, many goods are locally produced and therefore even cheaper," said one person in Belize.
