  • This place is wonderful to go along in groups of chocolate lovers friends, family, or with your lover. We went on a family trip and enjoyed every part of it. We learned about the process on the making of chocolate from the moment you plant the seed to the marvelous time you eat it. If you are planning to go, you must consider bringing your sunscreen and mosquitoes repellent with you for the part of the tour when you go into the plantations. Also consider that there is a small part of the road that needs repairing so, it is better to go in a Jeep or a suv. However, you can also go in your car or van but you will have to take it easy.
