Corozal Restaurants

  • Heaping chicken chow mein for cheap

    It's a hole-in-the-wall, and doesn't even look like much of a restaurant from outside, but has a huge order of chicken chow mein for cheap. Note that the prices on the wall may not be correct. For example, the wall says chicken chow mein costs BZ$6.50, but just plop down a BZ$5 and tell them you want chicken chow mein and they only charge you five...

  • Best ice cream in Corozal

    Bright blue exterior, cheery green interior, and right on the seawall. We only got ice cream, but it was amazing ice cream. Order an amount of ice cream, then pick as many flavors as you want to pack into the container you chose. Peanut butter and chocolate ice creams together.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Chetumal, you can catch these yellow & white buses that can go almost anywhere. Look for one that has the big sign for "Santa Helena" (the border town). It will cost you 8 pesos. Turn in your tourist card to Mexican Customs (they charged us a $10 departure tax), then walk across the bridge and through the Free Zone to Belize Customs. Once you clear Customs, you can even change US to Belizean at 1:2, and then catch a bus into Chetumal for BZ$2 ($1 USD). That puts you into the middle of Corozal.

    (If you don't know where to catch the bus in Chetumal, simply say: Donde esta al autobus a Santa Helena? to the first Mexican you see. =)

Corozal Warnings and Dangers

  • Beware of Skeleton Town

    Corozal is not that big of a town, but you should be aware of Skeleton Town, which is where all the local trouble (like stabbings) take place. The Northern Highway runs through the west side of town. Skeleton Town runs along the east side of that Northern Highway, from about two blocks north of the bus station (don't worry, the bus stop is safe)...

  • Take care

    Take care with walking around the busstation at night. There are a lot of not-so-nice-looking people around there begging for money or trying to sell you things. But they are very polite though... Everyone welcomed me to Belize before they started begging for money or smoke... :)

    Favorite thing: Bring a book to read or a journal to write in. You never know when you will spend a couple of hours in the middle of nowhere, or in a small busstation... ;)

    If you have a journal you can finally write down all of the things you haven't had time to write down earlier in the trip...
