Hi There,

I did the Cave tubeing & Zip line tour through a private company (Natcho & Cynthia) and at the end of the tour they gave us a bottle of Cashew Wine. I have not tried it yet as I just got off the Miracle 3 days ago . I will drink it this weekend as I look at my pictures and reminisce about the best cruise out of the 5 I have had with Carnival!!!

Have a Blast!

If you would like local cashew wine, nuts or other cashew products while you are in Belize email info@belizetours.com.bz or check out the Cashew link for more info.

Cashew products can also be mailed to you.

Cashew wine is very good. I received my first bottle from Nacho as did the other poster. You should have time to do some shopping in the mall area near the peir. There are a few stores there that carry it. You MUST buy some cashews while in Belize as well. They are not cheap, but they are so good you will scoff at any other cashew after you try them.

When you are in Belize they have samples of it at a lot of the booths near the port so you can taste test it yourself. I thought it was awfully sweet but interesting. I was not sure it would be worth it to have to have it confiscated and carry it off the ship. I might get it next time. It ran about $8 a bottle when I was there.

We also got a small bag of roasted cashews in town for $5 a bag, very small bags, maybe 6 oz? They were good but I would have liked salt on mine We got back on the ship and they had a bowl of unlimited cashews to put on your salad. This was on the Princess Grand. I love cashews luckily.

Yes, check out the booths near the port for cashew wine, etc. If you miss cashew wine after you leave Belize, you can arrange to have it mailed to you.

The cashew nut in Belize, especially produced by Crooked Tree Villagers, is prized for its flavor because it is roasted over fire while the usual method in other countries is to boil the nut.

It is a lengthy process to prepare Belize cashew nuts. It requires a certain amount of patience. First, the nuts are picked by hand. They are then roasted over an open blazing fire of resinous Caribbean Pine, after which each nut is broken out of its hard outer shell. Finally, the nuts are baked in an oven or on fire coals, in a baking drum. After baking, a thin skin is peeled off each nuts. It is a very time consuming, back breaking and tiresome job. So cashew nuts is not cheap. But, they are worth every penny. (Adapted from the San Pedro Sun.)

Local cashew wine in Belize is inexpensive because it is easy to make.

There was a terrible car accident on the way back to pier when we were in Belize. The highway was at a standstill for 2 hours and we were all afraid we would miss the ship. Luckily the road was filled with Carnival busses all heading back too, so the guide told us not to worry.

Getting to the point.

There was no time to shop. So thank you for posting the link because we wanted to buy some wine and didn't have a chance.

We purchased both the Cashew, and Plum wines when there in Feb. I am not a wine expert, but enjoyed both very much. I am more of a beer kinda guy. I really enjoyed their Bellikin beer, that is brewed locally. I too payed $8 a bottle for the wine.

Enjoy

Gary

We did the cave tubing and loved it! If I remember correctly, you are tendered in to Belize, and so you have to allow a little extra time to get back and forth by tender. I remember that we did the tour, and then they drop yo off where you get the tenders, there is a small little area of stores, and we did have enough time to walk around there for a bit, but not much. We ended up being on one of the last tenders back. This was about 4 years ago, though
