We visited this farm as part of NCL Norwegian Jade excursion. This farm was beautiful. We were able to see lush foliage and flowering plans and all sorts of spice plants growing. We rode in a trailer pulled by a small tracktor. The guide was very nice and explained all that we were seeing. Every now and then the driver would hop off and run to a plant or tree to pull something off and bring back to us to pass around. So much to see including cardamom, cocao, lemongrass, etc. Truly this was an amazing place and wonderful tour. After the drive we were able to stop in the visitor center which was lovely. We purchased some spices and my husband purchased a taco and some rum cake which he loved. We even were able to shake hands with the owner of the farm after our tour. I would go back here again if ever visiting Belize!

What a great excursion option if you want to get away from the beach. The tour is educational and the guides are awesome. Riding through the farm in the cart our driver stopped often to pick items to smell
The shopping at the end was great. The prices are reasonable and you can carry back on the ship

One of our favorite things we did in Belize. We toured with Marvin in a golf cart (just two of us) and got an awesome personalized tour. Sights, smells, tastes, and local insight. Had a nice visit with the owners afterward too. Highly recommended!

I went there with my colleagues for a three day retreat/professional development. The place accomodated over 60 of us, provided deliciously flavoured meals and ambience. The 30 minutes tour around the farm gave us chills and woke up or senses. Thanks to the guide we were able to see, smell, taste many of their plants. A little shop had variety of spices, natural honeys and aracaboi jam, my favourite. I am definately coming back soon.

This was part of an NCL excursion for us, and for people who’d like a break from the sun and a chance to learn something, the spice farm was a fun excursion!

They guide was very knowledgeable and allowed us to taste, smell and touch a lot of the spices grown on the farm. The little cart they pull you around in is cute, and a nice break from the walking that was part of our accompanying ruins tour.

I wish they would have had some kind of a handout or something to help you retain some of the information they shared verbally!

At the end of the tour you go back to the restaurant/shop which is stunning, made of teak and mahogany, and lunch is available to buy. It is native and YUMMY! You can also buy some of their spices and other products and souvenirs and the prices are reasonable (and they take credit cards or cash... cruise ship indicated cash only).

They have the nicest bathrooms you will see on your entire cruise... including REAL toilet paper.

I could have used another 10-15 min in the shop, but our combined tour had to keep us moving.
