Lying a mere 9 miles away from the Mexican border and located in the northern part of the country is the town of Corozal, Belize. If you are someone who enjoys laid back vacations where you can let your hair down and simply cruise the days by then this is the right place for you to go. Be careful though since most people here are very friendly to the extent of offering you marijuana if they see you as someone who has a rather laid back attitude. You can easily say no however since this is just one of their ways of welcoming you.

The town of Corozal can be easily accessed by way of buses that travel the Corozal-Chetumal route. These bus rides last only an hour and there are a number of buses that ply this route every half an hour or so. You can also get to Corozal by way of a bus that originates from either Belize City or from Belmopan. Other options you can try for getting to Corozal include flights from Maya Island Air and Tropic Air as well as ferry rides via the Thudnerbolt Ferry which takes around an hour and a half to two hours to get there.

Popular tourist spots you might want to check out in Corozal include the Maya Ruins of Santa Rita, the Cerros Ruins which is found right across the Corozal Bay and the Old Town market. Some events you might want to catch in the town include the Krem New Year’s Cycling Classic and the Columbus Day Fiesta.
