Get a Glimpse of The Mennonite Culture Via This Exciting Full-Day Tour

How much do you know about the Mennonites? Originally of European descent and heritage but born and raised in Belize, there are approximately 10000 Mennonites living in Belize today. Join us on this Maya and Mennonite cultural village tour, as we bring you on a trip through the jungle and back in time to explore this fascinating and reserved culture and see how things were before cell phones, cars, iPads, and even before electricity.

Besides seeing the Mennonites of Barton Creek, you will also head to the village of San Antonio, located on the road to the Mountain Pine Ridge. Named after Spanish priest St. Anthony of Padua, San Antonio was previously known – in the local Yucatec Maya dialect – as “Osh Multun Kakab”, which translates to “Three Mound Virgin Forest”. Today, villagers simply refer to their village as “Tanah,” which is the Mayan term for “our home.” Tour this lovely village and get a firsthand look at living Mayan culture.

Cap off the entire trip with a local Mayan lunch, included in your tour.
