Belizean Cultural Package Deal!
Have a research paper on Belize’s culture or simply looking to experience our overall culture first-hand? Bingo! Parrot Cove Lodge, a ‘petite’ beachfront resort located on the southern outskirts of Hopkins, Belize, has a special cultural package that’s just right for you. The package caters for up to a maximum of 4 people for a duration of 6 days (5 nights).
Start your experience with an insightful transfer in our comfortable shuttle from the International Airport to the Lodge. It’s roughly 2 ½ hour journey that will doubtlessly leave you in awe. Keep your camera at the ready as you traverse across mountainous (literally) unforgettable sights while travelling along the Hummingbird highway. Be on the lookout for our famous Sleeping Giant Mountain which thankfully, is hard to miss, even from a distance. While at the lodge, luxuriate in our ocean-view junior-Suite that comfortably accommodates up to 4 people. Make yourself at home at either one of our restaurants, Chef Rob Gourmet Café or Love on the Rocks, and toast with a ‘welcome cocktail’ to taking back home first-hand experiences of the diverse cultures of Belize. Furthermore, enjoy daily continental breakfasts served with coffee, juice or tea at Chef Rob’s Gourmet Café. Likewise, relish some of the best dinners you’ll ever have at our famous Chef Rob’s Gourmet Café, which offers a daily changing menu. Or eat at Love on the Rocks and enjoy the unique dining experience of stone grilled food. Both beachfront restaurants are located on site. Please note that drinks are NOT included in the package. With that said, let’s move on to what you truly enrolled for.
Spend a full day learning about the ancient Mayan civilization, from the fact that they were great astronomers and mathematicians to a simple truth that they disappeared without any traces left behind except their temples and stone carvings. This tour will allow you to visit a couple of our historic Mayan Ruins during your day exploring. After your encounter with the ancient Mayans, spend another half day learning, this time, about the living Mayans. You’ll find our fully hands-on chocolate-themed experience on the famous Mayan Chocolate tour, both informative and fun. See cacao growing on trees, learn about its cultivation and most importantly, enjoy making your own chocolate on traditional grinding stones just like the ancient Maya did.
Let’s now focus on another enhanced Belizean culture, the Garifuna. Go on a half day Garifuna Immersion Tour and become a Garifuna as you get to dress in traditional outfits, enjoy refreshing young coconut water, ‘husk’ your own dried coconut, prepare your own Hudut (0ne of their famous finger-licking traditional dishes) and so much more. Oh, and did I mention drumming lessons?
On your free time with us, sunbathe on our paradise-like beach or lounge around the pool. It’s all yours. Or take our free bicycles and get to know more about the quaint village you’re in, or simply explore the shoreline by taking out our free kayaks. Whatever you choose, please don’t forget to bring along bug repellant and sunscreen for your entire vacation.
Come on and enjoy as Parrot Cove Lodge awaits on YOU for only USD 3,269.50.
