Dangriga adviceHello there,
We will be spending a week on Glover's Atoll and our boat departs from Dangriga. We will need to overnight in Dangriga, and we'll be there from about 4pm until 3pm the next day, when the boat departs. What can we do to bide our time (not interested in drumming)? We would be interested in a night-time jungle tour (or a short daytime tour that gets us back to Dangriga by 3). Would love to see some monkeys and birds. Is there anywhere affordable to stay that would offer such a thing, or are there independent tour companies that do this? I'm having a hard time finding information.
Thanks in advance for your help!!

3If you're staying at Glover's Atoll Resort, the boat leaves from Sittee River Village, further south. We stayed there in 2003 but in Hopkins Village in 2009 before heading to Glover's since the lodging option we loved in Sittee had changed hands. Maybe you're heading to another island out there, though, in which case please ignore. Happy trails!

4Thanks for the replies so far! I love this forum. :)
Mama Noots looks great and in our price range-- do you know how much it would be to get from Dangriga to the lodge? We will be taking the bus into Dangriga from BC airport, so we won't have a car.
Also, I'm a bit worried about being without AC in the jungle in mid-June... is it going to be bearable?
Pelican Bay is just outside our budget, unfortunately, but it looks nice!
We're going to Isla Marisol, which leaves from Dangriga. How did you like Glover's Atoll Resort? We were thinking about it, but it seemed a little risky from the reviews, so when we saw a Groupon for Isla Marisol, we pounced. :)

8If anyone out there is wondering about bus transportation to Mama Noots from Belize City, it seems that (please correct me if I'm wrong!) a bus with the destination of Punta Gorda will stop at the Mama Noots junction. From there, the lodge can arrange a pickup for US $10 (seems rather steep for a short distance).
We are now trying to decide between Mama Noots and Yamwits Lodge, which is halfway between Belmopan and Dangriga. Mama Noots seems "nicer"/more set-up for tourists, with a more jungly location, which is a plus in our books. But Yamwits is cheaper and more convenient transportation-wise. If anyone would care to sway me one direction or another, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
