Welcome to Northern Belize
But this chilled-out stretch of Belize, entirely void of crowds, with unbeaten paths, abundant wildlife, fine Maya ruins and deserted beaches is well worth a look if you're seeking to get away from the scene further south. What's more, Corozal and Sarteneja, both attractive coastal towns, are easily accessible by boat from San Pedro.
Northern Belize comprises two districts: Corozal and Orange Walk, both traversed by the straight, flat Philip Goldson Hwy. Off the main road, adventurous travelers will find pretty fishing villages, pristine jungles, ancient Maya cities and anachronistic Mennonite communities.
