Dangriga Belize

"The beauty of Dangriga is in its authenticity."

Along the southern coast of Belize you will find the vibrant Garifuna town of Dangriga. This rustic city is the jumping off point to Tobacco Caye and other ocean playgrounds off shore and is where Punta Rock music was fused. Given some time, you can easily attune yourself to the rhythms of this laid back cultural city.

Dangriga boasts a vibrant local market well stocked with anything anyone could need.
