Corozal shares a strong historical connection with our Mexican neighbors, and is the birthplace and home of the Mestizos (Maya and Spaniard culture). Today, the district encompasses a diverse population of ethnic backgrounds that have blended to give the people a distinctively relaxed outlook on life, making Corozal a tranquil paradise. The warm and welcoming locals makes this haven the perfect getaway destination.
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.
