Sibu Chocolate Tour
In the mountains 20 minutes north of San Jose, Sibú Chocolate uses their own organic cocoa beans to make dark and milk chocolate candies. On your tour you’ll taste every phase of the chocolate-making process, including the raw cacao fruit and the freshly toasted beans. You’ll also get a taste of chocolate history, and sip a hot chocolate drink made following a recipe from the 1500s.

Once you taste, you’ll immediately recognize the high caliber of this chocolate. It is made from organic cacao, grown in rich Costa Rican soil. Growing organic fruit keeps the surrounding environment healthy. This is especially important in the rainforest, which is one of the most endangered environments in the world. Sibú Chocolate has an eye for details when it comes to sustainable business practices – the paper in Sibú packaging is made mostly from the husk of the cacao plant.
When you sign up for the tour, you have the option to make lunch reservations. You can also order food from their a la carte menu after you arrive, which offers salads, sandwiches, cheeses, and desserts. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are available.
Of course, you’ll get to pick out some chocolate to bring home as a souvenir. You’ll find chocolate bars that pair smooth chocolate with spices like ginger and cardamom. Sibú Chocolates also make sugar-free products like drinking chocolate, nibs, and cocoa beans.
