The view when flying over Copper Bank and Chunox Villages in Corozal

We usually see this view when we are flying over Copper Bank and Chunox Villages in Corozal. Laguna Seca is a coastal lagoon sitting along our Copper Bank Village. It provides access to the Progresso Lagoon and opens up to the Caribbean Sea.

From our Laguna Seca you have access by boat to Cerros Sands, Orchid Bay, Sarteneja, Corozal Town, San Pedro Ambergris Caye and even Chetumal, Mexico. Although few tourists visit Copper Bank, other nearby localities like Orchid Bay, Cerros Sands, Sarteneja and beyond offer a more relaxed natural setting by the sea.

Copper Bank:

The English arrived in 1877 and named Copper Bank after some old copper coins from San Fernando that they found. As with all other regions in Belize, the first inhabitants of the area were the Maya. The nearby ancient site of Cerros covers about fifty-three hillside acres along our Corozal/Chetumal Bay. Cerros served as an important jade and obsidian trading center during its heyday from 400 B.C. to 100 A.D.

Today, most residents earn their living from the sea as fisher folks. Drying fishing nets along Laguna Seca and numerous docked boats expose the village's prime industry. Farming is also a thriving industry and a great means of sustainability for the villagers.

Copper Bank's natural scenery charms most visitors already pleased to have discovered a hidden paradise. Along with numerous fruit trees, hibiscus and orchids splash color throughout the streets, three nearby lagoons, including the idyllic Progresso Lagoon, showcase crocodiles, manatees, agouti, tapir, woodpeckers, toucans, and countless other jungle birds. If you hire a local guide, he can lead you through both Cerros and the lagoons.
