Pelican Beach Dangriga is your base for adventure throughout the Stann Creek district or anywhere in Belize.....
While you may prefer the option of a hammock on the beach or reading on your veranda, there is much to experience here:
- Have coffee on the verandah, then wander into town in the early a.m and watch the town slowly wake up. Vendors set up at the market; boats and visitors get ready at the river side and shutters come down from small shops, businesses and government offices.
- Interested in tastes and flavors? - Belize's #1 pepper sauce is made here and a factory tour or visit to Marie Sharp's shop is a must. The Garifuna local cassava bread is much like a cracker but the process of baking on an open hearth is an experience unto itself.
- The first management plan for the "Jaguar Reserve" - the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary resulted from a workshop at Pelican Beach in the early 1980's. Today the extensive trail system and visitor center are well worth a day tour.
- Hiking through the jungle covered temples at Mayflower Bocawina are a startling contrast to a visit to the excavated and restored temples at Cahal Pech and Xunantunich.
- Throughout the forest, there are hundreds of birds and animal species that reveal their existence as a colorful flash among the foliage, a melodious call or a distinct paw print on a muddy trail. See Belize's animals up close and personal in artfully designed natural habitats at the Belize Zoo.
- Avid divers have all heard of Belize's "Blue Hole" offshore. However, just off the Hummingbird Highway, there is another Blue Hole - a cenote, that is great for a refreshing swim, or the starting point for a hike to nearby St. Herman's Cave.
there is the Belize Barrier Reef! - Belize's most magnificent treasure and host to our own South Water Caye. Your day will be full with stops at the bird sanctuary of Man-O-War Caye, the Smithsonian Institution's research station at Carrie Bow; and snorkeling off the beach at South Water.
