November promises to be a very exciting month as Belize prepares to celebrate Garifuna Settlement Day. Every year on November 19th the country observes the arrival of this vibrant ethnic group with a day of cultural celebration. Many destinations across the country, especially Southern Belize, will come alive with festivities to commemorate this special event.

 

Don't forget that Maya Island Air offers 10 daily flights to Dangriga from the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport, making it easy for you to book your flights and partake in the cultural immersion of the Garinagu.
