Who knew? Evan took us us on a great up-close-and-personal walking tour of the banana fields and her workers demonstrated the steps in management of the plants. So interesting! We will never look at bananas the same way again!

Hi Marge, Because Carnival docks in the Belize City, we don't recommend trying to make it to our tour. The drive one way would take around 3 hours. We do hope you'll be able to visit our farm someday when you are closer!
