Diego Santamaria was our guide and his family owns this business. He guided us through the sugar cane and coffee bean fields, then the cocoa plants and showed us how each are processed. He was very generous with his time and answered many questions. He gave everyone samples of sugar cane and even made chocolate from scratch! We also got to make candy and then be taken into a sit down kitchen area where we had cups of coffee and some traditional Tico cooking. All were excellent. We also got to see three sloths in the trees on their property and were provided with a ox driven cart ride back to the candy making area. We were very pleased with this tour and even bought a couple of pounds of their coffee in their gift shop. We were on the last tour and he shuttled everyone back to their hotels in town afterwards.
