Fodor's Review

Not far from Corozal are several Mayan sites. The closest, Santa Rita, is a short walk or drive from the town center. It's on a low hill across from the Coca-Cola plant near Corozal Hospital at the north end of town. Only one large temple building has been excavated. The government of Belize in 2012 designated Santa Rita as an official "Wedding Gardens of Belize," and a number of mostly Belizean weddings have been held there. Usually in December a reenactment of the wedding of Tzazil-Ha, a Mayan princess, and Gonzalo Guerrero, a Spanish conquistador, is held here. Although there isn't a visitor center yet, a caretaker/guide will show you around and collect the admission fee.
