Everything you ever wanted to know about bananas. We went on a bit rainy Friday for the 10 tour. Maybe I should have emailed first. Gate to plantation was locked and we almost just skipped it but a young man walked out of gate keepers...More

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!
