Dangriga is the largest town in Southern Belize in the Stann Creek district. It maintains the strong cultural influence of the Garinagu (Garifuna) people who arrived here , the descendents of Carib Indians and Black Africans from St Vincent, in 1802. Even the name which means Sweet Water is a garifuna word. Here you will find a vibrant music and art scene where Punta Rock originated and several famous Belizean artists such as Pen Cayatano have made their home. On 19th November the town becomes alive with celebrations for Garifuna Day which celebrates the arrival of the Garinagu to Belize.
