Sarteneja - A Day Trip From Corozal

Sarteneja (Sar-teh-ney-ha) is a short 40 miles from Corozal; however, it takes about 2 hours to get there! Take in to account 2 ferries-their wait and traversing times- and the "charm of Belize" roads. Most of the time you are able to travel about 25mph, as you avoid the potholes. It would be a different story during the wet season.

We stopped just shy of Sarteneja at the Shipstern Nature Reserve. The $10bze entrance fee allowed us to enjoy the butterfly farm, a 1/4 mile well marked trail through the reserve and the observation tower. There were 3 species of trees only found in that ecosystem, they were well marked along the trail. There was a longer trail that split off about half way in, we chose to stay on the short one so we could get to Sarteneja.

We arrived in Sarteneja--since a picture is worth 1000 words.....ENJOY!
