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!

This tour showed the different aspects i.e. production, quality, distribution of a banana. Being out in the banana plant farm and watching the people work and the owner explaining the process was very unique. Bananas have so many quality controls which were explained in a...More

This was very interesting to see how bananas were harvested and how they grow! Putting a bag on the bananas was different.

We were worried that it might be goofy, but the banana farm tour was very interesting! Who knew how complicated farming banana plants (not trees) could be! Highly recommended if you need a day away from the beach or jungle.

Oh what fun and educational. Our group of 8 really enjoyed our tour of the bannana plantation. Evin was delightful and really does a great job making sure you understand how everything works. Do not miss this!

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!
