While shopping is not a main pastime in Dangriga, it certainly should not be overlooked.  Here, you'll find crafts and other handmade wares that are important to the local culture, and make for great souvenirs that will last a lifetime.  

What you'll notice is that your every day needs are taken care of in typical storefronts, but for artwork, handcrafted Garifuna dolls, and other crafts, you'll have to be on the lookout for stalls and stands on the streets.  This is where you'll find the best deals and most authentic crafts.
