Get off the tourist grid in Corozal
Corozal Town, the northernmost urban center in Belize, is a scenic and peaceful town nestled along the waters of Corozal Bay.
Located 89 miles north of Belize City and only 7 miles from the Mexican border, the town has a population of almost 10,000. Corozal is a haven for retirees from Europe and North America, but don’t feel like you have to take things slow here. Travelers and retirees love it here because Corozal is off the tourist track and, with everything from sport fishing to ancient Maya Temples to the Shipstern Nature Reserve, there’s plenty to do. There’s even a waterslide, if you’re into that.
- Visit the Cerros Ancient Maya Site.
- Ask the locals about Art in the Park.
- Take a stop at the old sugar factory in Libertad village for some great photos not too far from Corozal Town.
- Thinking about retiring here? This would be a good spot.
