Overview
Chocolate lovers flock to this incredible tour from La Fortuna that includes the sweetest rainforest experience and unearths the hidden secretes of local chocolate production. Visit a farm where cocoa is grown, processed and produced. This hands-on experience lets travelers eat as much chocolate as they want while learning about history, culture and traditions of this popular Costa Rican sweet.
What to Expect
Considered as "a gift of the Gods", the cacao tree was very important to the ancient culture. It was not only used as a ceremonial drink, but its seeds were also used as currency because of its economic value, in many regions of Mesoamerica, including Costa Rica.

In this 2-hour “hands on” program, you'll have the opportunity to learn interesting aspects of cocoa and chocolate, from its origin and history, participating in all the production process, from the harvesting of the fruit, drying and grinding of the seed, also the developing of the traditional drink of our ancestors, and of course enjoying a high quality organic chocolate.

Fun and educational

I visited with my two teens. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It is a small farm that just produces enough for the tours, so it’s not a big commercial operation, which we liked. You get a bit of history (they made it interesting), tour of...More

Not much at all and I walk with a cane. It is about 30 steps to where the tour is and you sit on bench's for approx 98% of the tour time unless you volunteer to help stir the chocolate, etc.
