My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Belize and absolutely loved this experience! The food was delicious. The culture was interesting. It was HOT! so dress appropriately - and spray bug spray - but I highly recommend it.

We so enjoyed our stay at Palmento! We had privacy and were away from the noise of town, yet close enough to enjoy it as well. We rented bikes and kayaks while we were there to get around and had several home-made meals at Palmento....More

My husband and I took the Garifuna Cultural & Culinary Tour. If you are into learning about the culture of the native people of the locations you visit or culture in general, this is a must. Great value, great time!

We found this tour through Belize Cultural Adventure Travel Services on the main street in Hopkins, and booked it right away. So glad we did! While very tourist-friendly, there is nothing artificial or canned about this experience-- the company and village site are a family-run...More

Hi, Yes, there is a bus that leaves at 5:00 p.m. You can also catch a taxi cab that will be able to take you to Hopkins. We can also assist with the arrangement of the cab transfer. Uwahnie
