Stephen Honeybill of The Crimson Orchid Inn – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
The water tower and guest houses at Crimson Orchid Inn, near Corozal, Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe price for a vacation rental in Corozal is about $100 a night, maybe a little more. In Corozal Town, vacation rentals are probably cheaper than out in the more rural area because there is one hotel that’s not so bad, and there are several others that may be okay inside but are not good. 
 
Vacation rental prices in Corozal depend on the time of year. There are three seasons in a year: the peak season, which runs from Christmas through New Year; the high season, which runs from the beginning of January to the beginning of June; and the low season which runs from the first of June through the end of November.
 
My rates have variations. A basic queen room would cost $80 in the low season, $100 in the high season, and $120 in the peak season. The variation isn’t that much, but over many days it can be quite considerable, and I will always entertain lower rates for longer stays. I publish that I may give you six nights for seven. Month-long stays can be quite a bit cheaper. If you’re a returning customer, there may be some additional considerations for your second or third time staying with us. 
 
I’ve had some people come for a dozen times already, just in the period I’ve been here. It’s all according to their schedules and what they want to do. Everything is negotiable- those are the base rates.

Condos at Orchid Bay near Corozal, Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingIn Corozal, you can get a vacation rental for US $40, but it may not have hot water, Internet, or air conditioning. If you want something that has air conditioning, Internet, and hot water in Corozal, you would have to pay about US $100 minimum per night. There aren’t any hotels in Corozal. 
 
These are rentals you’ll find through VRBO, Airbnb, HomeAway, etc. A lot of Belizean houses don’t have windows, and this poses a problem among expats. Most Belizean houses that expats rent just have open-air shutters and don’t have air conditioning or Internet connection. These are concrete houses. The $40 rentals are something like that. 
 
There are also nice homes in Corozal. For example, Consejo Shores is a nice community that has lots of expat homes that are for rent, like a vacation rental. In Consejo Shores, they charge about US $100 - $150 or more per night. Some expats rent these homes for a month, and the price goes down the longer you stay. For example, if it costs $150 a night, it would cost $850 a week, $1,400 for 2 weeks, and then for a month it would cost $2,500.
