Welcome to Corozal Town
But Corozal remains a fine place to be a tourist as it escapes the holiday-ville atmosphere that haunts some other places in Belize. With ocean breezes, affordable hotels, fine food and easy access to the rest of the district, Corozal is worth a stop on the way to or from Mexico – if not a detour from your Belizean itinerary further south. The whole town is situated on Corozal Bay, and the waterfront is lined with parks, picnic tables and the odd waterside palapa (thatched-roof open-air hut).
The town center is arranged around a town square, encompassing the plaza (Central Park), post office and police station. The main highway passes through town as Santa Rita Rd and 7th Ave, briefly skirting the sea at the south end of town.
