Check out the impressive ruins at Lamanai via guided river tour, explore the remains of Santa Rita—an ancient Mayan town, or simply relax by the water and do a little fishing if you so choose. This area has something for everyone, and because it isn’t quite as populated as the south part of the country, prices do tend to be quite affordable in this region.
A small seaside village, Sarteneja is a great base for visiting most of the key sites of Northern Belize. As it was and still is a fishing town, visitors can see traditions that live on today, such as the art of wood sailboat building.
Corozal Bay is one of the big draws when it comes to this town. Crystal blue waters attract those who long to visit Belize for its fishing, boating, swimming, sailing and snorkeling. Not to mention, the area is home to some of the best Mexican influenced restaurants in Belize.
