We took this tour on our last day in Belize! I will never look at bananas the same. It was so cool to see how they grow and harvested!

I took my five home-schooled children on a "field trip" to the banana farm. They were worried it would be boring--but it was anything but. The facility is clean and air conditioned, the introductory video very professional, and the walk through the banana fields interesting...More

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!
