If you want to know everything about history, culture and people on the Roatan island, you must go to the Flamingo Cultural Center. You can try there famous garifuna soup and enjoy nice view at the sea.

We had so much fun here! Definitely make this part of your island time. We asked for the experience to be participatory with the drumming and dancing, and they were more than happy to accommodate us!

We loved the time we spent with Audrey, the drummers and the lovely lady who taught us dance moves! This was totally do-able as part of our Daniel's Monkey Hangout + scuba tour, thanks to Daniel's mom who was our excellent driver and island historian.

The Garifuna people were sent to Roatan in response to fighting against slavery in Senegal. Many years later, this small community is committed to preserve and share its culture. Flamingo Cultural Center is in a rickety house on a beautiful beach. The performances by children...More
