Corozal Map and Guide

Corozal Town is the capital of Corozal District. Corozal Town is located about 84 miles north of Belize City, and 9 miles from the border with Mexico. Corozal was a private estate before becoming a town in the 1840s, mostly settled by Mestizo refugees from the Caste War of Yucatán.

Much of the town was built over an ancient Maya city sometimes known as Santa Rita; this may have been the original Pre-Columbian town called Chetumal. The town was badly damaged by Hurricane Janet in 1955 and was substantially rebuilt afterwards.

Corozal Town has attracted a large expat population, but still remains a slow moving and sleepy town. The people are very friendly and there is something of a hippie vibe around. The setting overlooking the crystal clear bay is tranquil and makes this an ideal place to relax and just soak in the Caribbean atmosphere.
