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. Thanks in part to the jaguar preserve and the coral reefs, Eco-tourism flourishes in Stann Creek. The recent construction of modern highways link Belize City to the district. Belize City is now only a two-hour scenic drive away.
