  • For reasons of organization we has been asked to attend a wine tasting prior to the visit of the garden. This tasting was fantastic animated by a young woman conveyor and captivante.par also we have tasted many things, from raw bean to chocolate worked in all its forms. This enabled us to appreciate the garden in the 2nd part of tour. (Since we had the explanations in the first part). Our advice: ask a attend a tasting before going to the garden. Because the whole point of the Garden lies in the explanation of culture and harvesting of cocoa.
