Everything you ever wanted to know about bananas. We went on a bit rainy Friday for the 10 tour. Maybe I should have emailed first. Gate to plantation was locked and we almost just skipped it but a young man walked out of gate keepers...More

Fun, easy walk around the Banana plantation while you learn how hard it is to grow bananas, especially ones that shipped overseas!

The tour was really worth the $30.00 BZD per person. The operation is amazing. The staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. It's worth the side trip. It's a good idea to call ahead for a reservation but we got away with just showing up.

We didn't have reservations, we just happened to see the sign and went down to check it out. The tour took 2 1/2 - 3 hrs., if memory serves us right it cost about $15.00 USD each. It is well worth the time and fee. Enjoy.

Hi Yvette, Is your port in Belize City or Harvest Caye with Norwegian? If it's in Belize City, we do not recommend attempting to make it to our tour. It's just too far to make it back in time. If you are cruising with... More
