The picturesque Hummingbird Highway snakes through the Maya Mountains leading visitors from the north to the jewels of southern Belize. In the Stann Creek district the larger towns and villages are on the coast, providing equal opportunity for inland and marine activities. The vibrant local cultures of the Maya and the Garifuna are alive with rich traditions in this part of Belize, which is also home to the world’s first Jaguar reserve, the intricate architecture of the Maya site at Lubantuun and over five marine protected areas offshore.
