"Like a welcoming hug..." Dangriga by hugolorenzetti

Dangriga Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 24 photos

Dangriga was our gate to Belize. We arrived by boat from Omoa, Honduras, in a vessel that stopped quickly in Punta Gorda and Placencia. Entering was not hassle free, unfortunately. We had to listen to the Immigration Officer saying that entering was ok for the gringos in the same boat we were, but not for south americans...

When we got there we were scammed by a Charlie person, who we paid only to take our time and choose our hotel properly.

After cursing the lack of third world solidarity, the scam and the dificulty to find a place to stay, we finally bumped into Pete's, a GREAT and reasonably priced waterfront hotel. Then everything was great again, and we could reply to all the 'helloes' and 'how are yous" we go from the very nice people in town...

    Too bad you had a 'rough' arrival in Dangriga but you lucked out with Pete's Hotel. That's a great view of the sea!
