Money Matters

Although American dollars are accepted everywhere in Corozal and Orange Walk, money changers at the Mexico border and in Corozal Town exchange Belize dollars for U.S. and Mexican currency, usually at better rates than in banks. The four banks in Corozal—Atlantic Bank, Belize Bank, Heritage Bank, and ScotiaBank—have ATMs, and three (all accept Heritage) accept ATM cards issued outside Belize. Look for ATM machines that display the Cirrus or Plus network logos. Orange Walk Town also has branches of Atlantic Bank, Heritage Bank, and ScotiaBank; Atlantic and ScotiaBank have ATMs that accept foreign ATM cards. There are no banks in Sarteneja or the Copper Bank area, or around Altun Ha or near the jungle lodges in remote areas of Orange Walk District.
