We want to introduce you to our amazing and talented team at the Belize Operations Base in Dangriga. The team in Belize are integral to the logistics and activities of your trip. They help with in-country transportation, hotels, organising room configurations, assisting with rentals of snorkel equipment or kayaks for our self-guided trips, organising food orders and special dietary needs, guest services, hospitality and much more!
Since 1987 when we first took guests to experience the wonder of Belize, we had an immediate connection with the people and culture. To this day, we still continue to have a special interaction with the Mayan, Creole and Garifuna people of Belize both through our adventure trips and with our incredible Belizean guides.
Here we look at the fascinating Garifuna culture and how the people of Belize celebrate Garifuna life through song, dance, music, language, food, dress and fantastic costumes:
Garifuna Settlement Day is a public holiday, commemorated each year on November 19th. On this day and the week leading up to it, Belize celebrates one of its most vibrant cultural groups, the Garifuna.
November 19th marks the day the first Garifuna people arrived on the coast of Belize in 1802.
