What to do in Corozal
If you are lucky enough to be in Corozal during a festival, do go and take part. These events are colorful and vibrant and will make for great memories.
Visit the Mayan ruins of Santa Rita and learn about both them and modern Corozal from your guide. However, you can explore this small site alone after you have heard its history.
Go to the Cerros Archaeological Reserve on the shore of Corozal Bay. Get to it by boat, unless you have an all-terrain vehicle. Otherwise, walk to it through the rain forest - that's an adventure in itself.
Shipstern Nature Reserve in nearby Sarteneja has some good hiking trails, although you need a guide for some. If water is more your thing, why not charter a boat and go fishing?
If you're out for excitement, go cave tubing and try zip-lining on one of the tours offered by Wet 'n Wild.
For a more laid back vacation, laze on the beach or in a hammock and relax with a cocktail made from freshly squeezed fruit juice. Delicious!
