This is a very isolated and underdeveloped area. All of the resorts listed here specialize in scuba diving, snorkeling, and, to a lesser extent, fishing. All of them also have a long list of tour options to attractions such as Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Sittee River canoeing, Blue Hole National Park, the Mayflower Mayan ruins, and cultural tours of Dangriga. If you're staying at one of the lodgings in either of the villages, you'll find numerous local operators offering snorkeling, scuba, and fishing outings, as well as all the above-mentioned tours.

If you really want to get a taste of the local culture, sign up for some classes at the Lebeha Drumming Center (tel. 608-3143; www.lebeha.com), which is located on the northern edge of the village. The folks here teach traditional Garífuna drumming and dancing.
