The tour was amazing. I learned more about chocolate and agriculture today than I could have imagined. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. My 14 year old son particularly enjoyed the experience. I wholeheartedly recommend this experience.

Wow. Only 3 ingredients to make beautiful chocolate. And no sugar or milk added. This is a must tour. I'm not going to tell you how they do it. Go and see for yourself. You can even buy some to take home.

Although we did not take a tour, we thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate beverages we ordered and sipped on the veranda. Very nice little store celebrating Costa Rican chocolate.

David was an amazing tour guide taking us through his family’s property and the chocolate making process. He is very knowledgeable and so authentic. This was 2 hours very well spent. We received cas juice, akee, hot choc drink, and samples of his family’s choc.

As mentioned there is a small store (road side) but the owner will also offer goods at the end of the tour from his home & the working farm...which is where we made some purchases.
