  • Fascinating tour of a cacao plantation and mini chocolate production. Really a highlight of the time in the area and a don't miss. Learned so much about a history and process i never took much interest in before. Left with a great appreciation for chocolate and also some nice souvenirs.
  • This is a must see if you love chocolate and are visiting this area. The guide was very well-informed, funny, and the samples to try at the end were amazing. I'd definitely go back.
  • David gave us the tour and he did a great job. We ate many fruits we have never seen and experienced the whole chocolate making process. It was fantastic. At the end we drank fresh hot chocolate and sampled different chocolates made at the farm.
