Dangriga or Hopkins?

Hi, I am planning a trip to Belize and would like to do some activities in Stan Creek. What area would be the better place to stay for me, Dangriga or Hopkins, considering that I am coming from Belize City by bus?

Also, what is your top 3 things to do in Stan Creek?

Thank you for your help,

We hugely prefer Hopkins to Dangriga, although the bus schedule is a little limiting. You can read about it here:


Swimming in the ocean, an evening of Garifuna drumming at the Lebeha center in Hopkins, and hiking in the Cockscomb Reserve are 3 favorites of mine.

I don't if anyone can guess which place you would like better.

For me, I'd skip both and stay in Placencia. For you, I'd suggest seeing both places. Stay the first night in Dangriga, that should be enough time to see the town & the Garifuna Museum, then move on to Hopkins.
