MUMU (TRADITIONAL STONE COOKING) DEMONSTRATION
Mumu is an earth oven that operates by heating stones which are afterward put or arranged around on the food, covered with banana leaves firmly to prevent steam to escape during the process of cooking. The food usually consists of sweet potatoes, yams, bananas, taro, and chicken or pork. These ingredients are mixed together and placed inside freshly cut leaves from a banana tree. The banana leaves are wrapped tightly so that no air can leak out, and just before the package is sealed, coconut grease is poured into the package to flavor the ingredients. The package is then placed on the pile of hot rocks and covered with additional rocks and coconut husks.
Take guided bush walks into the rainforest or walk along the coast through local villages. There is even an extended day hike across the mountain ridge rising behind the resort, where you can view the entire coastline and the dense rainforest canopy. Take a pair of binoculars to view the cockatoos, hornbills and parrots along the way.
