A friend and I recently traveled to Belieze and spent nine days exploring the gorgeous country. Between the many adventures we went on, going on the Bunches of Fun banana farm tour was by far my favorite thing we did! Not only did we learn about the growth, packing, and shipping processes of banana farming, but we were able to... More

I have been on this tour four times, and it never ceases to amaze me! Evin takes the time to SHOW you the entire process of growing and packing bananas from beginning to end. It is absolutely fascinating to see how the fruit ends up in our kitchen; the amount of time, effort, care, and work made me appreciate all... More

This one of a kind, truly educational look into the day to day operation of a banana plantation was fascinating, fun and very informative. Evin Zabaneh takes you step by step into the history of bananas and then walks you through the plantation where you have the opportunity to see banana plants being harvested - from just a stem with...

This was so much fun! They show every step of the process while explaining why. The amount of work involved for quality bananas makes you appreciate food and has inspired me to compost and garden! Thank you.

Evin Zabaneh of Sagitun Farms, a banana farm at the end of a long, servicable dirt road, will show you the ins and outs of the fascinating banana plant, you get to watch her crew harvest them, load them onto the really clever zip lines that lace the farm and move them to the on-site packing house. Evin made Lynda... More

The banana farm tour was one of the highlights of our trip. It was very interesting, educational, fun, and a delicious treat at the end. I'll never look at a banana the same way again. Thanks so much for the great tour. Susan Munro, Dundas, Ontario

The tour is 2 hours and every minute is filled with up close and interactive information. Kids and adults will enjoy. We took the grand kids ages 2 and 6. They both enjoyed it. The road to the farm is rough but can be driven on safely. You will love the surprise at end.

Like others have stated I never really thought what went into where bananas come from. I will say I will never take for granted this fruit again. The whole process is done by hand, which to me is fascinating. The tour is done by the owners wife, and you can tell she is passionate about her job. She is highly... More

I'll admit a couple of thing here; first, I really never gave much thought to "where bananas come from", and second, I didn't have great hope for it to be an exciting story! I recently had the time and the opportunity to visit the Banana Farm and take the Bunches of Fun tour and was very happy to enjoy this... More

I absolutely loved this part of our vacation! We came to Belize to relax and enjoy the great beaches, but we came home with a new appreciation of how food is produced--plus the banana farm was absolutely beautiful! The tour was of a family owned and operated banana farm that's a short drive from all of the resorts and attractions... More
