Post-Maya settlers of Corozal were fleeting the Caste War in Mexico. Today a different kind of refuge has discovered the peaceful paradise that is Corozal…the retiree. Several small expatriate suburbs have established themselves in Consejo Village. With convenient access to medical services, the business sector and entertainment, Consejo offers seniors an active lifestyle within postcard settings.
English is the official language of Belize, but in border communities like Corozal, Spanish is spoken more often. Not to worry, everyone understands English and Kriol, the local dialect.
In Corozal, you’ll never get lost in translation because in this place, visitors can always trade their stress for relaxation.
It is a two hour drive to Corozal Town from Belize City. Allow longer travel time for the bus. Water taxis make the scenic journey from San Pedro to Corozal Town regularly. Local airlines Tropic Air and Maya Island Air make scheduled flights to Corozal.
