The urban areas of northern Belize punctuate its primarily rural setting and reflect the cultural diversity within Belize. Organized, clean, and friendly, the towns and villages in the Corozal and Orange Walk District often charm unsuspecting visitors. Whether planning a trip or just passing through, you'll undoubtedly spend more time than anticipated exploring the towns and the many surrounding attractions. We warned you!!
Corozal Town, the largest town of the quiet, bucolic Corozal District, exemplifies the cultural and economic transformation the region has undergone over the past 4000 years.
