This tour will especially interest visitors who have never seen cacao in its natural state. It grows inside an oblong yellowish pod, and goes through an involved process to become the chocolate that we’re used to seeing in stores.

You’ll be able to get involved in the various stages of production. Guides on this tour are extremely knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions you have about the farm. During the tour you’ll also see 37 different types of fruit and herb.

What to Bring

Comfortable clothes, walking shoes, and a light raincoat.

What's included

Guided tour and chocolate samples.

This was an immersion in a local farm. I really enjoyed being able to see a little deeper into the culture of the locals. They were a great family and I felt honored to be a guest to their farm. And the chocolate was great too!
