Description
Come and enjoy a fun filled day on our  Garifuna Cassava Farm Tour. Come witness the traditional life of our Garifuna farmers; maintaining endless rows of cassava beds and reaping the splendid crop from their labor. This wonder crop has been loyal to the Garifuna people since their movement through the Caribbean by being the main staple in their diet and can last up to several years without spoiling. Therefore, come and enjoy seeing first hand how to prepare cassava bread from the plant to the finishing product and also come enjoy the delicious byproducts such as the scrumptious cassava pudding.

Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services is not your typical travel services company. Unlike other firms which focus primarily on selling packaged adventures or transportation services, ... moreBelize Cultural Adventure Travel Services is geared towards promoting indigenous cultures in the country and empowering them through a shared experience of traditional and legacy knowledge, music, culture, food, and dance.

Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services works with all of the indigenous cultures of Belize, including Creole, Mestizo, Maya, and Garifuna in an effort to improve cross-cultural awareness and improved understanding. Instead of drive-by visits or tourist trap-style fake cultural performances, Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services works directly with the indigenous cultures to help them preserve and protect their ancient traditions.

Activities offered by Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services include workshops on making traditional foods from scratch, village home stays, and music and dance performances.

At Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services, the empowerment of local communities comes first. That's why a portion of all proceeds goes towards funding an annual cultural entrepreneurship and indigenous cultural preservation summer camp.

Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services is a sister company of the Palmento Grove Cultural & Fishing Lodge located in Hopkins, Belize, which is a Garifuna community that actively works to protect and promote traditional Garifuna culture.
