Copper Bank

Getting Here and Around

One way to get here is by boat from Corozal, which costs around BZ$80–BZ$160 for up to four people. You can also drive from Corozal Town, crossing the New River on the hand-pulled ferry. To get to the ferry from Corozal, take the Northern Highway south toward Orange Walk Town (watch for ferry sign). Turn left and follow this unpaved road for 2½ miles (4 km) to the ferry landing. After crossing the river, drive on to a T-intersection and turn left for Copper Bank. The trip from Corozal Town to Copper Bank takes about a half hour, but longer after heavy rains, as the dirt road can become very bad. As you enter Copper Bank, watch for signs directing you to "Cerros Maya."
