  • A quick visit. The garden is nice and well made panels. Then guided visit with tasting is very nice.

  • Nice tour where we learn and enjoy the art of the transformation of cocoa. The visit to the Park is fast (small park!), it is essentially the presentation that is worth trying because the taste buds are put to use... The shop prices are a bit high.
