You REALLY don't want to miss this tour! We had a little trouble booking it because the phone # in Tripadvisor was wrong. If your hotel or airbnb doesn't reserve this for you, the owner's daughter, Vanessa wants people to call her at +506 8441-6612 (English) or +506 8603-0464 (Spanish) to reserve. We are SO glad that we did figure... More

Wonderful tour of a family run cocoa/fruit farm. You really get a great feeling for the character and heart of the Costa Rican people. Our tour guide, who's name I believe was Vanessa and her father took us on an amazing journey through their property. We learned about indigenous plants, trees and herbs and also some that we should stay... More

This was one of the highlights of our Costa Rica experience. The education about sustainable farming practices and the diverse range of plants was top notch. Amazing friendly family. Go support them!!!

There was so much to see and do (and taste) on this marvelous tour. Marcos (who spoke English) was an amazing tour guide--knowledgeable and passionate about the plants and animals of the area. He quickly figured out our interests in the plants and took us to some additional places after the tour to show us new flora. The tour was... More

The Raices family was very fun and friendly and it was really cool to see how they farm and make chocolate and a variety of other crops. This is definitely worth a stop though! We even saw squirrel monkeys playing in the trees 10 feet away.

He shared his extensive knowledge of and love for the different plants and trees on their vast farm. We were able to sit down to a savory lunch that... More

This is my second trip to the ranch. Owner (German) was very happy to see repeated visitor and he took as around himself. White pineapples - taste better than regular ones. Home made chocolate - need some sugar (joke). This time we met his entire family and it was good experience.

This was amazing. 14 of us went together, German the father and his English speaking daughter Veronica showed us around the entire property, explained the different plants and their uses. When we arrived at the little ranch, they had fresh chocolate milk for us, little snacks and a chocolate scrub. We got to make little chocolates and purchase their delicious,... More
