Located on the north side of Hopkins Village in southeastern Belize, Palmento Grove Garifuna Eco-Cultural and Fishing Institute consists of both a private island retreat and an inland ... moreTour & Travel Services Business designed to reflect the authenticity of a traditional Garifuna village. Owned and operated by local Garifuna people, an Afro-Caribbean culture indigenous to Belize, Palmento Grove is one of the best places to experience authentic local culture in Belize.

For more than 10 years, Palmento Grove Garifuna Eco-Cultural and Fishing Institute has served as a sustainable tourism business and a cultural preservation center. Situated amongst beautiful mangrove bushes on the edge of Fresh Water Creek Lagoon where it meets the Caribbean Sea, Palmento Grove feels like a world away. Specializing in authentic Garifuna cuisine and cultural activities, the institute serves as an outstanding introduction to Garifuna history and culture.

Guests of Palmento Grove can wander the footpaths on this isolated strip of island or head out with local fishermen to try your luck at catching some of the many abundant species of fish and seafood that thrive in the area. Guests can use fresh-caught fish mixed with fresh vegetables from the gardens to learn how to cook mouthwatering traditional dishes like hudut, a Garifuna fish stew made with coconuts and plantains, all accompanied by the sounds of traditional Garifuna drumming.

Designed to promote holistic healing and rejuvenation, Palmento Grove is a true sanctuary where guests are surrounded on all sides by fresh air and delightful scenery. Rooms at Palmento Grove are cozy and comfortable, furnished in the traditional Garifuna style, and with magnificent views looking out at the pristine garden & water view.

Palmento Grove is an environmental and socially conscious business that is dedicated to empowering people through the promotion and preservation of traditional cultural knowledge, history, and way of life. Palmento Grove Garifuna Eco-Cultural & Fishing Institute is also the organizer of the Belize Paranda MusicFest, which promotes and protects traditional Garifuna Music in Belize as well as sponsoring an annual cultural and entrepreneurial summer camp for local youths.

If you're looking for an oasis away from the stresses and strains of modern life, then Palmento Grove Garifuna Eco-Cultural & Fishing Institute is exactly the place that you've been looking for. Palmento also organizes tours to nearby attractions on the reef and mainland, including snorkeling, scuba diving, and trips to ancient Maya cities. The Institute can be reached from Belize City in about two and a half hours and is located in the historic Commerce Bight area on the north side of Hopkins Village in Stann Creek District.
