Commercial Free Zone
Commercial Free Zone Review
About 300 wholesale and retail companies are located in the Corozal Commercial Free Zone/Zona Libre Belice on the Belize side of the Belize-Mexico border. Visitors may find some bargains on clothing and household items imported from Asia, along with discounted gasoline and liquor, though the retail stores target Mexicans rather than U.S. or other international tourists. Three casinos also target the Mexican market, especially on weekends. Visitors going from Belize to the Free Zone must may the BZ$37.50 exit fee, which cuts into any savings on gas or merchandise, and pay duties on goods (especially liquor) brought back into Belize.
