What I love the most about travel are cultural experiences, especially festivals and rituals. In this article for Moon Guides, I tell the story of my first time “dancing under the shed” to Garifuna drums on the eve of Settlement Day, in Dangriga, Belize.
This post is part of a month-long series of articles by various Moon guidebook authors on their favorite end-of-year celebrations in their respective destinations. Feel free to post any comments directly below the article on Moon’s site.
For more on Garifuna culture or for help planning your trip to Belize, pick up my edition of Moon Belize (10th Edition) just released this month and in stock on Amazon. The book is in full color, for the first time, and includes several custom itineraries to help various types of travelers, from the adventure junkie to the culture-holic. The Kindle version is also now available for the e-book junkies among you.
If you already have your copy and feel inspired, as several have indicated, I would be most grateful if you could leave a quick review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
