If it is a rainy day in Arenal check out Don Juan Tours. The farm is protected from the elements by glass roofs that are erected over the foot trails. Don Juan offers two tours in one. The coffee tour takes participants on a journey through history. You will learn the importance of coffee to the Costa Rica’s past and current economy. You will walk through the farm and factory to see how the bean becomes the rich dark liquid we all love.
The famous chocolate tour is next. You will smell and taste different types of chocolate as your guide explains the cultural history behind the treat. The guide will also walk you through how the plant goes from seed to pure ground cocoa.
