Discover Roatan | #Yübu - The Garífuna Experience

When your ship arrives at its debarkation port, it is your choice to get off the boat or not. Since my family and I love adventure, we decided to explore and learn something about the country. Shore excursions are not cheap, but are worth it if you want to venture to attractions and all that kind of stuff.
We chose the "Discover Roatan" shore excursion for $59.99 each. The tour includes learning about the history of Roatan, boat ride, sample delicious jams made by the locals, and meet the people of the Garifuna tribe.
First stop was meeting the Garifuna locals. We were greeted by this fella...yay! I have to hold Akesha's chest before she ran! She don't want to take a picture with the guy. She did smile!
The experience begins with a 30- to 35-minute historical talk about the Garífuna’s beginnings and their brutal passage to Roatán.
An uplifting dance demonstration was performed. 
They asked the audience to participate. I didn't dance but hubby! He got to experience the Garifuna dance. He had a blast shaking his!
