Dangringa is a funky Garifuna town in Stann Creek, Belize. It looks a bit rough around the edges, but is home to some of the friendliest people you're likely to meet. If exploring Belize in any depth you're likely to come through here at least once en route to the south or to the southern cayes... spend a night if you've got the time.
The small airport (IATA: DGA) is served by Maya Island Air and Tropic Air several times daily, with flights heading north to Belize City and beyond, and south to Placencia and on to Punta Gorda.
Buses ply the main highway, with the same destinations.
Boats depart from the main dock across from the River Front Cafe to just about anywhere you're willing to pay to go, or with frequent service to Tobacco Caye, etc.
Central Dangriga is small and walkable, but you may want to grab a taxi (BZ10) if you're headed to or from the airport or the north end of town.
