Highlights
  • Make the wonder bread of the Garifuna people
Description
Engage in baking a traditional Garifuna wonder bread with our master indigenous baker over an open flame traditional fire heart. We start by picking all organic ingredients out of our local garden. You then experience how to pull out the cassava root straight out the ground to prepare for your plate. Then we go through the traditional process of preparing the cassava for baking. All that hard work will surely pay off as you enjoy that mouth-watering taste of the wonder bread that can last for up to 5 years and has allowed the Garifuna people to win wars against western society.

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.
