Wasani and Eugene and Star and Mauricio and the drummer were the most genuine, knowledgeable and kind guides. Thank you for sharing part of your day with us.

Palmento Grove was one of the highlights of our trip! Being able to experience the beauty of the space, to learn more about local culture and traditions and to actually try our hand at weaving, cooking and drumming was fun for me and my daughter. Uwahnie brought such joyous energy and passion to brighten the entire experience and make us feel welcome. Highly recommend!

We did the morning fishing with a local guide in kayaks and caught numerous red snapper. Great fun. Then met the super friendly and chill staff and had a fun, fascinating and delicious time learning about Garifuna culture, making a meal with the fish we caught and having a drumming lesson. Easily the best day of our 15 day Belize trip.
