Dangriga is town on the central Belize coast, at the mouth of the 20 mile long North Stann Creek, some 40 miles south of Belize City. Founded in 1823 by black refugees from Honduras, it developed as a port and trading centre for bananas, timber, coconuts, and fish. Visit the nearby Mayflower Bocawina National Park, a lush forested area at the foothills of the Maya Mountains. Walking trails through the forest lead to waterfalls and Maya temples, including Mayflower, a Late Classic site. The forest is home to over 230 species of birds, howler monkeys, and other wildlife. From Dangriga you can also visit the Mayan Stone Maiden and the Cockscomb Basin Wilderness Sanctuary, which occupies about 150 square miles (390 square km) and has a large number of jaguars.
