Garifuna DrumsStann Creek is Belize's second largest district with 986 square miles of possibilities for the adventure inclined traveler. The coast is dotted with small towns and fishing villages that offer cultural flavors in exotic combination, and access to crowd free cayes as well as the remote reaches of the Belize Barrier Reef.

Beginning just a few miles inland, the territory hosts Maya villages, the world's first jaguar preserve, a wealth of tropical forests, and a good portion of the Maya Mountains including Victoria Peak.

A masterful culture, golden sand beaches, striking views of the Maya mountains and a unique sanctuary for the elusive jaguar, Stann Creek is an exciting blend of culture and adventure. Breathtaking vistas of the Maya Mountains and the emerald citrus plantations of the Stann Creek Valley line the journey from Belmopan to Dangriga via the Hummingbird Highway.

From Dangriga down to Placencia, the coastal towns and villages each have something special to offer. The people are friendly, there are real beaches here, and offshore the blue water belies a world of marine wonder that includes the endangered manatee and the fabled coral reef. Underwater adventurers will find an abundance of delights to immerse themselves in.

With an amazing selection of adventures and attractions, Stann Creek is a wonderful place to spend a few days of discovery, and its central location makes it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of Belize too.
