Garifuna Culture Tour
Sopa & Machuca
Enjoy a relaxing and beautiful day of authentic Roatan, away from tourist crowds. Your driver will take you on an east island scenic tour, with stunning mountain top ocean views, and descend to the sea side through one of the oldest island fishing communities. Your boat guide will take you on a beautiful tour along the east, south shoreline, passing by stilt homes over the sea's edge, through winding mangroves that open into stunning lagoons and beautiful villas perched above on the hillside.
Feel free to jump off and swim in the crystal clear lagoon in a world that feels just for you.
After returning to the boat dock, your next adventure begins! This is not your ordinary island tour with a “peak” into manufactured culture. Our tour is notch above the rest, because we offer a true cultural experience! Drumming, junkanu dancers, history of their culture with an option to purchase traditional Garifuna cuisine (machuca and fish).
Passing through Punta Gorda, signs of their African ancestry are evident everywhere, whether in the thatched roofs of mud huts, or the frequent echo of drums in the distance, fishing canoes dotting the sea or girls having their hair braided under a tree on a hot afternoon. The Garífuna culture isn't only for the Garífuna, it's to be shared with the world.
This package includes; private transportation, east island tour, mangrove tour, refreshments, tour Punta Gorda's Garifuna community. Enjoy an authentic Garifuna lunch of machuca, coconut based seafood soup with fish and mashed plantain, shop local handmade artifacts, paintings and more!
