First, you’ll head to a canyon about 20 minutes outside of La Fortuna. Waterfalls gush down the side of the canyon and provide an exhilarating backdrop for rappelling. After the descent, you can conquer the canyon’s rock-climbing wall. Your guide can also bring you to an area called the Monkey Drop, where visitors can go on a zip-line ride through the jungle landscape. You don’t need any experience for these activities.
After your break for lunch, you’ll take a 15-minute trip to Rainforest Chocolate, for the second part of your tour. Chocolate has a long history, and its preparation has changed significantly over the centuries. Historians believe that people from Central and South America were the first to consume chocolate.
On your chocolate tour, you’ll learn how to harvest, dry, and grind cocoa. Then, you’ll make a traditional chocolate drink. Before you leave, you’ll get to sample some of the organic chocolate they make at Rainforest Chocolate. Consider it a sweet goodbye from the Costa Rican jungle.

LOVED IT! Words can't describe how much we enjoyed this. Our tour guide was the best also!
Learning something new is such a treat, especially on this tour. Discover the history behind two of the world's most common indulgences — coffee and chocolate. You will get to sample both, but more importantly, you will discover the history and production behind these agricultural staples. Whilst leading up to the tour, consider the fact that technically, neither of these crops is crucial to human survival. Yet, two of the world's luxury crops have become necessities. Can you imagine a world without either of them?
