Unique food tour to the Spice Farm in Southern Belize

Another food tour post!  Belize is killing it when it comes to agritourism and I must admit, I’m IN to it!  It’s fun, it’s flavorful, it’s educational…what could be better?  In Southern Belize we have a bounty of bananas, a surplus of citrus, a plethora of papaya, a copious amount of cacao, and too many mangoes.  The climate is conducive to year-round growing and the soil is rich; which was the inspiration for the creation of the Belize Spice Farm and Botanical Garden– a beautifully special property you…

Like so many people, I had not explored this “Forgotten Land” before and I was so excited…
