Fulfilling immersive cultural fun!
Sep 2018
It is one of several immersive and rewarding things to do in Punta Gorda, whether you are a Belizean or a visitor. It would make an excellent team-building exercise for a business or group of teachers who are on retreat in the area. Discover your inner talent--or lack of. Either way, it's fabulous and inexpensive.

The instructor Ronald McDonald (his real name) is patient, good-humored and an excellent teacher.
