Really a great tour. I compare it with the Britt coffee tour. This is a very informative tour where one comes out filled with knowledge about chocolates. The taste tasting is something to remember. Great for families with kids Friendly staff

Great experience around the chocolat process (fruits/beans to chocolate) and test with different flavours. It is also a great opportunity to walk on the longest tree canopy bridge and see animals (snakes, sloths, bullet hunt....). I recommend this tour.

Most people think they know a lot about chocolate, just because they eat it. This tour and shopping extravaganza should not be missed.

Went here on a whim. At first I was disappointed it was not a Cacao plantation, but instead was an education in the Cacao plant and its place in Costa Rica history. Jeffery was an excellent guide. It was well paced and we experienced Cacao...More
