Great Chocolate Tour
Jul 2021
Alejandro was a great guide for our Chocolate Tour! He knew so much about the process, and about indigenous botany of Costa Rica as well. He was great with our kids, and kept them engaged also - not an easy task for a 4 and 6 year old! We really enjoyed learning all about the chocolate-making process, from fruit to chocolate bar. We got hands-on experience also! The history of chocolate-making was also fascinating! There is a nature walk through part of the park afterward, where Alejandro showed us native plants, trees, ants, and flowers, and explained their part in the ecosystem and importance of their survival. He even pointed out two toucans high in the trees that we would not have seen otherwise. Highly recommend Alejandro and this tour!

Don't go on the chocolate tour
Mar 2021
Our chocolate tour took less than 45 minutes. We basically walked and talked to each other while our tour guide is on his whatsapp.

We were also given wrong information - chocolate does contain caffeine. Anyway, you can read about that on the internet and how fermentation and processing can impact the level of caffeine.

He made us hot chocolate from pre-dried cocoa nibs - I did enjoy that hot chocolate, but it was certainly not worth 80 dollars. He did not ask whether or not sugar was ok, so they were too sweet and if you have diabetes, just skip this tour.

Our guide needed to be asked questions to give us the minimal amount of information. He then asked for a tip at the end.

Great experience for kids and adults
Jonathan was a great guide for this informative and fun quick tour. We have done a similar tour years ago in CR, and it entailed a lot of walking through a park and not much tasting of chocolate.

This tour was different. We walked up to the covered seating area to hear about the way chocolate is made. It’s just enough information to be interesting, but not so much that children lose interest.

I would recommend it for children at least 5 years old and older.

There is plenty of engaging tastings and experiences throughout the tour.

Highly recommend

Excellent historical lecture and delicious chocolate experience
Dec 2019 • Family
Jonathan did an excellent job of giving a historical and agricultural overview of chocolate. It was so interesting to see the plants, understand how chocolate is cultivated and how chocolate is made. The experience is hands-on and we were able to actually make and eat our own chocolate. Great experience!
