Food Festivals to Experience While in Belize
Belize Dive Haven is located on Turneffe Atoll, a remote location about 30 miles from the mainland. It’s far enough away that you can experience some of the most incredible diving in the area, but close enough to the mainland that you can plan to spend some time there before or after your stay with us.
If you’re passionate about food and culinary experiences,
plan your trip to Belize Dive Haven around one of these festivals.
Every May, the Crooked Tree Wildlife Reserve hosts the annual Cashew Festival. The Creole village in the park celebrates the seed of the cashew apple by showcasing how it can be used to make cakes, jams, cookies and even wine.
Toledo Cacao Fest
The Maya used the cacao bean for a number of purposes. During the Toledo Cacao Fest, you can learn about the significance of the bean in ancient cultures and sample different foods made from cacao. There’s also arts and crafts for sale during this festival that runs for three days in the middle of May.
If you love lobster, make sure to take advantage of lobsterfest in June. Many coastal communities like Placencia, San Pedro and Caye Caulker all have their own activities but they all include indulging in lobster, laughter and having a good time.
|Belize Dive Haven will be celebrating Lobsterfest this year with a special dinner. Prepared by our resort-chef, the meal will highlight locally sourced ingredients that capture the flavors of the region. We even include freshly picked fruit from the dozen of trees that are planted around the property!|
