Lots of Maya. Less travel.
If you’re looking for a short trip to ancient Maya temples while staying in Corozal, Santa Rita is just outside of town and gives you a chance to see some without traveling to a remote area. Santa Rita was founded in 1500 BC and was one of the district’s major trading centers. There are few structures uncovered and no guides to show you around. But with a little imagination, you should be able to transport yourself back in time. Or, at least, get some nice pictures.
