Stephen Honeybill of The Crimson Orchid Inn – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
Sarteneja, Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere aren’t American-trained doctors In Corozal Town. In the outlying districts of Corozal, however, there is a volunteer American-trained doctor who comes in once a month and visits the clinics in Sarteneja. He has a home right next to the Crimson Orchid Inn.
 
This volunteer doctor is building a brand new clinic in Chunox, and will be opening another one within Orchid Bay sometime in the future, probably when he gets to move down here on a more permanent basis. This doctor is the head of emergency medicine in a teaching hospital in the Carolinas and has a license to allow interns to work here at Orchid Bay and give services to the surrounding communities as necessary. 
 
The doctor knows anything about everything and can prepare and stabilize patients for transport either to Corozal, down to Orange Walk, or to Belize City. They can also fly you out of the country or run you across the bay into Chetumal. If you need immediate medical attention, you can get out of Corozal easily. Corozal has open areas where we can land helicopters as well if necessary. We are quite advanced here in Corozal.

Jennifer Bellerjeau of Cerros Beach Resort – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
University  of San Carlos of  Guatemala , School of Medicine in 1907, pictured – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are doctors here in Corozal but they are not American-trained; they are trained in Cuba and Guatemala. I find that their level of expertise, being trained in those countries, is equivalent to an American doctor. Cuba is world-renowned for their medical training so I feel comfortable going to Cuban-trained doctors here in Corozal and I am an American.
 
I have had a couple of health issues here and so has my husband. The cost of treatment of what we spent in the States is phenomenally different compared to all those years that I was healthy and paying the insurance companies. Considering all the money I’ve wasted paying for insurance in the US to the cost of healthcare here in Corozal, it’s crazy.
