UNESCO recognized the Garifuna Culture as a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity. This designation means that it is an important culture that should be preserved, promoted, and celebrated. On this excursion you will be immersed in a full Garifuna cultural experience – from dressing in the traditional clothing of the Garinagu to discovering their ethnic cuisine through a cooking lesson. Hudut, comprised of green and ripe mashed plantains call “fu fu” and a coconut fish stew, is the popular dish you learn to cook.

Hamanasi helped introduce my family to the Garifuna & Maya people of Belize. Everything is so close – the mountains, caves, waterfalls, animals, ruins – this is such a peaceful country with rich culture and a people that cares about the environment. What a hidden gem! Thank you!
