We visited the La Madison du Cacao and enjoyed the tasting. The Garden walk is short but entertaining. Our demonstration was in English and quite informative.

Walked around the gardens, saw the cacao trees at their various stages, and got to sample some amazing chocolates, with detailed explanations throughout the process. On our last day, came back to buy another box of chocolate. Was delicious.

Wonderful way of learning about chocolate, in a nice setting and with friendly staff. The tasting menu is very informative and there are products for purchase as well. The only small downside is (for a non-fluent french speaker) oit's tough to keep up at times.
