My husband and I recently returned from our honeymoon in Costa Rica and were fortunate enough to visit Rancho Raices for the tour of a lifetime. As guests of Crocodile Bay Resort, they arranged our own guide (Diego) for translation purposes and for the short 15-minute drive to and from the resort. From the moment we arrived and were greeted... More

Very interesting tour. We saw and experienced every step of the making of real chocolate. The meal was outstanding : so fresh and so good, from the pina blanca to the mandarina juice, the gallo pinto and of course the piece of their fabulous chocolate. Thanks to Vanessa and German!

We have visited this area many times and JUST discovered Rancho Raices - a very special place right off the main road. The farm owners are very welcoming and very informative on this guided tour. There is so much to learn about indigenous people and the medicinal uses of trees and plants. All sorts of delicious fruits (samples provided!), vegetables... More

This family farm is a must-see attraction in Puerto Jimenez. The home made chocolate is truly authentic and everything is produced right on the farm. From the beautiful scenery to the delicious home made organic food and the amazing experience provided by the entire family, passing this up would be a huge miss on your vacation. Everything is natural, sustainable... More

This tour was interesting, beautiful, and educational from beginning to end, and kept the interest and attention of all 9 of us throughout (ranging in age from 8 to 49)! The farm/tour is family owned and run and they are all personable, helpful, and fun! The tour began with an easy walk through the farm as they educated us on... More

We took this tour as a family not fully knowing what to expect. The tour is run by a family, on their property which is planted with various local timer, medicinal, and food crops. The daughter was wonderful at translating/ explaining things in English, and the whole family seemed genuine in their enjoyment of, and dedication to, the property. The... More

There are few trips like this Tour to Finca Raices (organized by Crocodile Bay Resort) that are available to tourists. Don German and his family have been running this sustainable farm of hundreds of acres for over 45 years and live almost entirely off of the farm. Don German inherited the land from his father and has witnessed and been... More

We visited on a tour whilst staying and fishing at crocodile bay. The family that run the farm are genuinely warm and friendly. We toured the whole farm and saw the huge variety if things grown there and had the opportunity to taste some interesting stuff! The chocolate is amazing and you have the opportunity to join in the process... More
