Hamanasi Resort Culinary Adventures
Garifuna cooking classes and organic garden are centerpieces

HOPKINS VILLAGE, Belize — Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort, an award-winning boutique eco-resort offer guests the rainforest basin. The Garifuna Culture has been proclaimed as an intangible heritage of humanity! Join them to experience the full Garifuna cultural experience from dressing in a Garifuna traditional outfit to exploring the foods through the cooking lesson.

Hudut is the popular Garifuna dish which guests learn to cook from scratch.  It is comprised of green and ripe mashed plantains called “Fu Fu” and a coconut fish stew.

While the food is cooking, tour a Garifuna Gallery and your host will explain and describe some of the Garinagu artifacts that have been collected throughout these years at Hamanasi. Additionally, guests can drum, dance and sing with the friendly indigenous people of Belize and enjoy the pulsating rhythm of the Garifuna Drums.  Be one with Belize!

Hamanasi chefs share their quick and easy recipe for Mango Salsa: A fresh snack that takes 5 minutes to prepare 1ripe mango, 2 tablespoon lime juice, 1/2 onion, 2 tablespoon red bell peppers, 2 to 3 tablespoon cilantro, salt to taste with an option of Habanero pepper if you dare!  Served with corn chips for a great reminder of your time in Belize!

A tour of the organic garden provides a peek into the sustainability practices at Hamanasi Resort. From reusing wine bottles to make garden beds to composting and picking vegetables and fruits for the next meal, guests enjoy experiencing the efforts to reuse and recycle.

Well-known for its PADI 5-star Dive and Snorkel Center, as well as daily trips inland, Hamanasi offers many reef and rainforest adventures to guests with everything from waterfall rappelling to scuba diving to climbing Mayan pyramids.  Guests never want for things to do and Hamanasi’s Reef & Rainforest package makes vacation planning simple.   Of course, unwinding by the pool or on the beach is a relaxing alternative.
