here's my best recommendation.

talk to Henry Menzies <[email protected]> of Menzies Tours in Corozal. if he doesn't answer, then get ahold of Judy Wilson <[email protected]>, and have her get ahold of him. Henry is new-ish with email and sometimes takes a bit to respond. but he's awesome and can totally give you all the possibilities.

Here's about his biz:
Menzies Tours, based in Corozal Town in northern Belize, has a wealth of services to offer. They arrange tours and do transfers in Belize and Mexico. At the Caribbean Village in South Corozal, they have a restaurant, Hailey's, and they will cater a special meal for a group if you like. There is also a fully equipped RV park, with a dumping station, electricity, and water.

here's their transfers page, if they come and get you:

Kerry,

You can catch a Novelo's or Northern Transport bus (both owned by Novelo's -- they have bought out Batty & Venus) on the Northern Highway at the entrance to the international airport. Just walk (about a mile) out to the highway, or you may be able to get a taxi to take you though when the flights come in taxis prefer to take passengers into Belize City, and get on just about any bus going north. It's 2 1/2 hours or so to Corozal Town. The bus goes through the main part of Corozal Town and will drop you off or you can go on to the bus station toward the north end of town.

Consider renting a car for the Corozal part of your trip, as it's handy to have on in Corozal -- you can explore a lot of interesting areas that otherwise you would have to visit on an expensive tour.

Unfortunately those bus schedules on the Internet are about three years old and now mostly out of date, with the consolidation of bus ownership. Seems like the fare now to Corozal is around US$6 or $8. Had a ticket stubb here with the fare on it, but can't find it.
