Progresso Lagoon

Once part of a busy trade waterway, today Progresso Lagoon is simply a place to relax with friends and family.

Progresso Lagoon is favored for picnicking, but more and more tourists are visiting to see the site of a postclassical monumental center that is believed to be of Mayan origins. The structure is located within the lagoon itself.


Progresso Lagoon is located 1.6 miles northeast of Progresso, a village in Corozal District; it is 10.2 miles to the south of Corozal.

Take the bridge across Orange Walk Town to San Estavan Village to get to Progresso Lagoon. Take the paved George Price Street as it curves right, then continue on until you have arrived at the lagoon.
