The heart of The Corozal District, Corozal Town is a quaint seaside Town on Corozal Bay, an inlet of the Bay of Chetumal, which in turn is part of the Caribbean Sea. It's pretty laid back, known more for its friendly people and good food. Prices at many local restaurants for the meals they prepare are beyond comparison. Corozal Town is part of the ancient Maya city of Chactemal, and ruins can still be found right in town. It is now called Santa Rita.
Supplies, Medical, Emergency, Dental Care as well as any services you require are in town. You will be surprised by the amount of Chinese Food and Stores that are found here.
Its superb location gets approximately 60 inches of rainfall a year, which compares with Florida, USA.
The Corozal Free Zone and the border with Mexico is only 7 miles away. Convenient for some shopping, wandering around or taking in some time at its three Casinos. We recommend Ace's restaurant at Las Vegas Casino.
Chetumal, the capital of the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico, is just a few miles from the border. You will find having Chetumal as a neighbor is something nowhere else in Belize can match. Be sure to visit the Chetumal page on this site, then browse it for yourself and see what it has to offer.
Flights from the Corozal Airstrip just south of town provide 22 minute service to San Pedro and the largest natural Barrier Reef in the Western Hemisphere. From San Pedro you can connect with flights to Caye Caulker, Belize City and Belize's Goldson International Airport.
Americans, Canadians and Europeans pepper the area's local inhabitants, which are a multinational blend of friendly residents from the Mestizo, Maya, Creole, Garifuna, Mennonite, Asian, Mexican, Central and North American cultures and like elsewhere in Belize are, indeed, a delightful mix of outgoing, accepting and easily blended people from this multitude of different cultures. The former group (Americans, Canadians, and Europeans) are substantial drivers of the region's real estate market, a trend with no immediate end in sight, while the latter support the industrious engine of a very healthy, expanding local economy and emergent new nation.
