Spice Farm and Botanical Garden Tour The Belize Spice Farm & Botanical Gardens, located at the foothills of the Maya Mountain in the Toledo District is the result of the inspiration ... moreand hard work of Tom and Tessy Mathew.

When vacationing in Belize, the Mathews, originally from Kerala, India, were struck by the fact that the climate and topography of Belize are quite similar to that of Kerala, which is known for its world famous spices, such as Tellicherry Black Pepper, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

So in 1990, they started the Golden Stream Plantation in the Toledo district of Belize to grow cacao and citrus. With the aid of the Belizian Government, they imported seeds and cuttings of spice plants native to their homeland.

The farm is now one of the largest black pepper and vanilla farms in the country and is adorned with beautiful teak, mahogany, rosewood, and sandalwood trees, as well as a variety of other magnificent specimens.

You will never look at your spice rack in the same way again! This tour is perfect for food lovers.
