Overview

It is in a private and educational plantation area that the tour will take place. Enjoy the calm of the jungle, and let you guided on this magical place, between cocoa trees and other typical species.

First step, we kick things off by learning about cacao and it’s history all over the world, and of course, here in Costa Rica. We then will show you how it is harvested, fermented, and ground into the delicious thing we all know and love, CHOCOLATE! You will taste it in more ways than you can dream of : from the fresh beans, to the melted dark chocolate. You will discover how the people from ancestral civilizations used to prepare the “drink of the god”, a chocolate-based drink.

After our fix of chocolate, we will move on to learn about coffee. Coffee is very important in Costa Rican culture and for its economy. Put yourself in the shoes of a true coffee picker, try on the tools used for the occasion and learn more about the drink that makes you waking up in the morning ! After that, you will get a demonstration on the traditional way Costaricans prepare coffee and you will, of course, have the opportunity to taste it.

To finish up the tour we will learn about trapiche, it is a sugar cane mill that is run by oxen, named Fast and Furious. This is where they grind sugar cane in order to get the juice and create many local candies that you will have the chance to try!

The presence of wild animals like sloths, monkeys, birds and frogs is common. Be ready for anything!
