Sarteneja is a small fishing town in northeastern Corozal district, Belize. Found on the Sarteneja Peninsula jutting out into the Caribbean Sea, this Spanish speaking town is actually the largest village in Belize. Known for its aquamarine blue waters and surrounding natural beauty, this far-flung town is a good place to get away from it all.
