Dangriga is a nice place to visit, but not much is offered in the line of "resorts" or lodging. "Pals" is one place near the shoreline that has a few rooms for a night, we have not been there, but they do have a website.
We always make sure to visit the stores, the open market and make conversations with the people that live there. That is our way of enjoying the towns/villages. It is also where we pay our taxes. If you skip over Dangriga then you have missed something.
Then we head to Hopkins. It is a much smaller village and very likeable as well.
There are many people in Dangriga that are happy to point you in the right directions to places, ie; banks, groceries and eateries.
We also love to watch the children as they come home from school for their lunch break and return. They are all uniformed and it indicates the schools they go to.
I've yet to see any problem situations in town. We have friends that live there and love it. We have spent nights with our friends but we didn't wander. It wasn't in our plan.
We don't bar hop, so that may be a reason for some to want to skip it too. We did have a cocktail at a friendly little bar and drank on the front porch of the establishment.
Our reasons for going to Belize are not always the same as others, but how can you see things if you don't make that stop?
It's entirely up to the person on their vacation.
Enjoy your visit, no matter what you do or where you go in Belize, we do.
