Junie & Brittany, Belize City
Website of the Day
Stann 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. Driving in from Belize City will bring you down the recently finished Hummingbird Highway that affords some spectacular vistas of the limestone hills blanketed by dark green broadleaf forests. Little villages and acres of citrus groves characterize the Stann Creek valley before you get to the historic home of the Garifuna people, Dangriga, where the Hummingbird Highway terminates its run. 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.
