Stann Creek, Belize: Mayan Ruins, World-Renowned Scuba Diving, and Wildlife
The district of Stann Creek, set along Belize’s southeastern coast, is one of the country’s top tourist destinations. The Mayans occupied this region as early as AD 250, and its interior landscape is strewn with impressive ancient ruins set against the Maya Mountains. Today, people come to Stann Creek to see these ruins, enjoy the tropical climate, and visit the area’s eco-tourism destinations.
Opportunities for everything from hiking to river tubing abound in Stann Creek. The Belize Barrier Reef—the world’s second-longest reef—runs the length of the coastline. There eagle rays and other fascinating creatures inhabit cays and atolls. Native wildlife can also be seen at the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s first jaguar reserve. Visitors can follow the well-kept trails that cut through the 160-square-mile park, home to howler monkeys, pumas, and much more.
