So much more than chocolate
EricDupree

This is more than a chocolate tour. We tasted delicious fresh fruit that is also grown onsite - papaya, pineapple, carambola (aka star fruit) just to name a few. We tasted fresh orange juice and sugarcane water. The walk through the cacao trees is slow placed and our guide explained how the cacao transforms from a seed to the raw cacao powder that will be used for commercial chocolate production. At the end, we tasted fresh brewed coffee (also grown there!), Cacao bites and hot chocolate. You can purchase fresh coffee, processed cacao bites, honey and pure vanilla (wanna guess where it's grown?). Don't forget to say hi to Maria, the juvenile sloth that lives there.

This tour was amazing! First, we were lucky enough to see a baby sloth hanging around nearby. We tried several fruits, the portions were plenty and very generous. Most importantly, the family is the sweetest. They’re very humble and friendly. You’ll feel very welcomed and you’ll enjoy all the food and drinks you’ll get to try. We had banana, papaya, guanabana, pineapple, star fruit, orange, mango, freshly squeezed sugar cane drink, homemade hot chocolate, coconut rum, coffee, and chocolate. You get a lot of different things to try for just $25, it was awesome! I will definitely be back again :)

Amazing! This did go into all the details of the process of chocolate and we got to see and taste each stage. But we were given sooo many different fruits and drinks to try aswell. Plus saw a sloth! It was a really well rounded tour. All the family helped on it, it was lovely. And the main guy was super funny.

Probably the best part of our time in La Fortuna! This tour was amazing - definitely come on an empty stomach. We booked a chocolate tour but I’d call this more of a farm tour (fruit and chocolate). We walked around the farm learning about the different plants and tasting the different fruits. Honestly it was so delicious - best fruit ever! We had bananas, soursop, mango, orange, sugarcane, etc and that was before we even got to the chocolate. Lastly, we walked through the chocolate side of the farm and got to see the process of making chocolate - from drying the beans to crushing them into paste. To end the tour we were all given hot chocolate, coffee, biscuits and chocolate they made themselves. It was all delicious! This was such a highlight of our trip - we even got to see a baby sloth as well as a hummingbird nest with baby birds. Do yourself a favor and book this tour - you won’t regret it!

Amazing family experience!

I walked away educated… about chocolate and the eco-system of plants, birds and insects that live in harmony to produce exceptional Costa Rican Cacao. Not only were we educated about chocolate, but got to taste tropical fruits that balance the cacao eco-system… papaya, pineapple, bananas, sugar cane juice, home grown and freshly roasted coffee. OH… I forgot to mention the chocolate… Delicious chocolate… as cacao and home grown vanilla squares and also the most delicious hot chocolate. Come hungry and leave satisfied!

Josue & his family are clearly passionate about their farm, take pride in their hard work & enjoy sharing their knowledge with other people that are so lucky to visit this gem. We really enjoyed learning about the history of the farm, seeing the different plants & their proceeding , the interactive activities, and of course all the taste testing. There was a large selection of fruits we got to enjoy during the tour, and of course chocolate and coffee, vanilla & sugar produced right there. Excellent! We 10/10 recommend this for teens & adults.

The hosts are amazing- personable, knowledgeable and generous. The bright or more samples than I’ve ever received on a tour- and all green on their organic farm. It was a highlight.
