We're considering Belize and would like to hear more from you Corozal fans about what you like most and least about Corozal. Thanks so much!
Well Robert, here is what I wrote about Corozal, after I visited there:
Corozal; the name just sounds exotic and cool. That’s exactly what this town is; laid-back, cool fresh and reminiscent of Taos, New Mexico or Sedona, Arizona. Corozal is the Spanish name for the cohune palm tree which is used in thatching houses and you will find palm trees aplenty along the breezy shoreline of this bay side town.
This fertile bottom land, known for its sugar cane, is also home to a budding artist community. At any outdoor bar, commonly called casitas, you may find yourself sitting next to a painter, sculptor, jewelry maker or some other artist, quietly practicing their trade in this tropical haven.
As with any artistic hangout, places to eat and drink are plentiful here:
1)For a relaxing, sit down breakfast or lunch, try the restaurant at the Tony’s Resort. Tony’s is beautifully landscaped and features a variety of blooming flowers in the garden areas. Later you might like to try the adjoining Y-Not Grill & Bar for some surprisingly good “Pub Grub”.
2)For some lively conversation and just a good place to sample some of the local beverages, you cannot go wrong with Primo’s Casita. It is a good crowd there that will welcome you with open arms.
3)Now if you are looking for a special treat, Make sure that you visit Corozo Blue’s! They have a real, outdoor, brick, pizza oven and they know how to use it! They even serve an outstanding hummus, which adds an additional international flavor to this exotic laid-back locale. Make sure that you try the Pizza Margarita,I can guarantee that you will enjoy it.
Corozal! The place to be, if you want to get in touch with your inner flower child!
Now all of that aside; while I really enjoy Corozal, I find the Cayo district more suited to my lifestyle. To each his own!
