We arranged three trips with Garifuna tours even before we arrived. They responded immediately to emails and questions. They came to the Palma Real to pick us up for just a bit more. Our first trip was Cueros y Salada wildlife refuge. This was a perfect day. We felt safe and comfortable in their air conditioned van. Our next trip... More

We booked a day trip to Punta Sal with Garifuna Tours. Our guide, Mark, picked us up at our hotel and we had a delightful 45 minute boat ride to the jungle and beach destination across the bay. Bring insect repellent for the hike through the jungle where you will see howler monkeys. Our guide said that they don't take... More

Had a great day visiting the Cayos Cochinos. Ricardo was a true pro and did a wonderful job explaining the history and culture. Snorkeling was the best I have ever experienced.

Our tour to Punta Sal was amazing, this is my third time traveling with Garifuna Tours and it was unforgetable. Our tour guide RICARDO was excellent, very kind and professional, I recomend him as a tour guide. I traveled with a group of 10 people and all of them were happy and pleased about the tour. I highly recommend this... More

We booked a tour to Punta Bonita and the waterfalls online and emailed various times (at least four) to confirm. I saw that my credit card has been charged the correct amount but when we arrived at the ferry dock in La Cieba there was no one to pick us up. We got someone to call tem and they knew... More

Dear Jeasy22, We sincerely apologized for this issue. As we told you we never got your tour reservation, your payment, or the four emails you wrote to us hoping for a confirmation. It makes us want to know to which email account you sent said emails? Our booking system has never gave us a situation like this. It simply shows... More

We went on the day trip to Punta Sal and really enjoyed our day. The biggest disappointment was that our guides were waiting for a group to arrive and they were (as usual) late. Our tour ended up leaving about an hour and a half late (!!!!) When we left, my husband and I were pretty upset about the timing.... More

I would give 10 stars if I could. My tour to Punta Izopo was fun, informative and beautiful. The tour agents are professional, helpful and kind.

As several other reviewers have noted, there are things to like and things to dislike about Garifuna Tours. On the plus side, the staff (both in office and on tours) have very good English, which makes arrangements easier and tours more informative. They also seem to have a wide range of tours, though as so often happens with such outfits... More
