Description
Enjoy a super fun day in the beautiful Maya village of San Pedro Columbia in the lush green Toledo district. Immerse yourself into the world of chocolate, walk the organic farm/forest, pick fresh cacao from the trees, eat it straight from the pod and learn about harvesting, fermenting and making the traditional way (plus lots of sampling). After a delicious traditional lunch, we explore the Lubaantun Maya ruins and learn about the mysteries surrounding the Maya civilization, and the crystal skull. From old to new, we move to the Earthship, a modern day temple, Belize's largest recycling project, a temple made totally of trash, displaying recycling and off-grid living at its finest!!
