The Mestizo capitals of Corozal and Orange Walk are a delight to visit. With the beauty of the turquoise waters of the Corozal Bay, to the flavorful tacos of Orange Walk town – visiting the north is an enriching cultural experience.
Corozal is conveniently located between Mexico and Ambergris Caye, with its own turquoise shores and diverse landscape; from beaches and historical sights to a nature reserve. In town, remnants of historical and cultural heritage are on full display.
Only an hour north of Belize City, Orange Walk, affectionately known as “Shuga City”, for its sugar cane production, is home to the majority of the country’s Mestizo population. Beyond the tempting rum factories, Orange Walk is both rustic and authentic. This is a place where it is not far-fetched to go for a morning rainforest run and spot an ocelot stealthily crossing jungle trails.
