We had a free afternoon in Cocles so wandered down to Caribeans...so very glad we did! Not only was the tour wonderful and the chocolate AMAZING, we also enjoyed Paul and Jean very much - their passion is inspiring! We saw lots of wildlife along the way too.
You will be blown away by the chocolate tasting...the most incredible chocolate ever, made even more perfect by the view - this tour is a MUST!!! Our kids (11 & 9) also loved the tour.
We've got a nice supply to take back to Canada too;)
Thanks Paul and Jean!

Amazing! Highly recommend ! Just to be aware, the climb to the farm is a bit stiff but great informations about cacao growing and the tasting was absolutely fantastic and Jeff our guide was funny and very much knowledgeable.

We had an excellent experience at Caribeans. I was looking for a cacao farm tour but what we got was SO much more. We had the opportunity to taste chocolate at every step of the process bean to bar. At first I thought the price seemed at little high, but halfway through I changed my mind. The highlight was chocolate tasting comparison like we were wine tasting, high above the trees with a great view of the ocean. Jeff, one of the owners, gave an outstanding tour. They say 2 hours but we were there for 3. Be prepared to take some chocolate home! And the smoothies at the store were wonderful too.

Thank goodness my son asked me to bring some of the good local coffee back from our trip to Costa Rica. In the market, my friend showed me BRITT's dark roast, so I bought 2 packages. They were about 14 ounces, and you can choose whole beans or ground. Several days later we were at San José airport and discovered a kiosk serving tastings of Britt coffee. Of course, I had to try it and found it to be full-flavored, smooth and delicious. I bought a third bag.
Britts also sells chocolate covered coffee beans and gourmet chocolates. Sorry I didn't buy more.
