Stann Creek is one of Belize’s districts located along the Caribbean shore. It is home to a Jaquar preserve, mountains, coral reefs, and banana plantations. Dangriga, the capital, hosts Garifuna Settlement Day every November, a music and food festival that celebrates the arrival of the Garifuna people over two centuries ago.
