Yes, nygal that reminds me. In the Garifuna village of Seine Beight, you MUST stop at Lola's Art Gallery and CAfe. Seine Bight is just up the road (north) from Placencia. Anyway, Lola's is off the road a bit in a sugar cane field. Lola is very friendly, and will show you her artwork. My hubby and I stopped there on our bike tour two years in a row and spent a pleasant while with Lola. She explained to us the history of Garifuna culture...very interesting. It's these little "off the beaten track" moments which are the BEST. I think they have music nights every once in a while there, although, sadly we never made it. Seek out the local businesses and people...that's what it's all about, to me.
