Corozal has a hospital with some emergency equipment and an ambulance. It’s fine for basic healthcare. Orange Walk is just south about 40 minutes away by car and has some better facilities. A number of people have had some fairly major operations down there and everything’s been fine.
Belize City is about a two-hour drive. Belize City has probably the best-equipped hospital in the country. Most of the doctors there have some US training but the majority of them come from Central America.
The other alternative to Corozal is to head up to Merida, Mexico, which has world-class medical facilities. Merida has everything from plastic surgeons to heart doctors to eye doctors; anything that you could need. They’re mostly US trained. Merida is about a four-hour drive from Corozal.
