The Corozal Bay

The Affordable Alternative for Waterfront Living in Belize.

Life in the Corozal Bay

Waterfront living that won’t break the bank. The Corozal Bay is the number one choice for anyone seeking life near the water without the top dollar price tags normally seen on the islands. An ever-growing and ever-changing area, the Bay offers a peaceful haven for expats and locals alike. And with both San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and Quintana, Roo Mexico just a stone’s throw away, there’s no shortage of things to do and places to see.

Choose from an array of lagoonfront and seafront properties in vibrant retiree communities, sleepy fishing villages, or the laid-back Corozal Town.

What to Do

  • Santa Rita & Cerros
    The Maya sites in the Corozal District are not as frequently traversed as others around Belize. That means sites like Santa Rita and Cerros are perfect spots for those seeking a glimpse into the world of the ancient Maya without the typical crowds.
    Fun Fact: Cerros, which is just a short boat ride away from Corozal Town, is the only Maya site in Belize located directly beside the Caribbean Sea.
  • Disc Golfing at Cerros Sands
    Whether you’re a pro or you’ve just always wanted to give it a try, disc golfing at Cerros Sands is sure to be a memorable experience. Inside this growing planned community sits an 18-hole disc golf course that is set right beside the sparkling Caribbean Sea.
  • Shipstern Nature Reserve
    Nature enthusiasts visiting Corozal don’t have to go very far to witness the beauty of Belize’s biodiversity. The Shipstern Nature Reserve boasts 31 square miles of tropical rainforest, which some 300 species of birds call home. Birdwatching, hiking, and a visit to the butterfly farm are just some of what visitors can do at Shipstern.
  • Snorkel at The Belize Barrier Reef
    The fact that the Corozal District is located on the mainland doesn’t mean that diving and snorkeling aren’t an option. In fact, Ambergris Caye—and by extension, the Belize Barrier Reef—is just a quick 20-minute plane ride away from Corozal Town.
  • Visit the Corozal House of Culture
    Connect with the vibrant culture and history of Belize’s northernmost district at the House of Culture, located right in the heart of Corozal Town. Functioning as a museum, an art gallery, and a cultural center, it offers visitors an in-depth look at Belize’s Maya and Mestizo people.
