You are able to tour a working Fyffes banana farm that was spotlighted on HGTV and see how their daily operations work. The tour is extremely informative, well done, and definitely worth a visit. Once the tour is over, you get to enjoy fresh green banana chips that were cooked while you are there. They were SOOO good!!!

Everyone in our group loved this tour! We ranged in age from 15-82 and it was a great stop. It was hot, so I recommend sun protection, a hat, and drinking water. But the heat was worth it, so learn so many amazing things about the banana business. I don't even like bananas, but I loved this tour. Evin is a fantastic guide who clearly knows all her workers and has great respect for them. It was great for the teens in our group to see these workers and how much labor is involved in the banana process. Definitely a tour and an experience we will never forget. Highly recommend!

Glad we found this gem of a Belizean experience! We learned a lot about the banana industry. The tour was led by a family member who is originally from the US. Great hospitality and depth of knowledge from an international agricultural educator. Highly recommend! The fried banana chips at the end of the tour are delicious!

About twenty minutes from Placencia, big operation. Informative, insightful, one get a better appreciation when you buy five or six bananas...did you know a bunch of bananas is what's taken off the plant. It nice to have one of the owner's leading the tour. "Fried green bananas" to eat are a nice touch.
