Welcome to North of Belize City
The recently renamed Philip Goldson Hwy is still referred to by many locals as the Northern Hwy. It stretches from Belize City and into Orange Walk District, passing by the communities of Ladyville and Burrell Boom (west of which you'll find the Community Baboon Sanctuary). At Sand Hill the road forks. To the west, the road continues to Orange Walk, passing the turnoff for the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary. To the east, the Old Northern Hwy leads to the Maya ruins of Altun Ha and a dreamy jungle resort and spa.
