The perfect way to dive into local culture! Come and experience this Garifuna drumming, dancing and dinner extravaganza. Under a beautiful traditional Thatch Palapa on the edge of Punta Gorda town, you will be given a brief overview of the fascinating Garifuna people and culture of southern Belize. You will then be treated to a 45 minute professional group performance of a number of traditional rhythms and songs. If your feet start to tap along, then don't despair, as you'll be given the opportunity to join the traditional dancing lesson at the end. Once you have worked up a slight sweat and earned your dinner, it's time to sit down, relax and enjoy a traditional Garifuna meal of "hudut" - fillet fish sauteed in lightly seasoned coconut milk, served with mashed plantain.
