What To Expect
During your experience, discover the origins of chocolate, a plant — cacao — that dates back to civilizations of Mesoamerica like the Maya and the Aztecs. With your guide, take a hike across the Tirimbina suspension bridge to a cacao plantation and through a section of forest to see the plant growing.
Hear about the natural and cultural history of the cacao tree, and learn how the fruit is processed and turned into the chocolate that you eat and drink, from harvesting and fermentation to drying and milling. Plus, you may taste different types of chocolate, particularly organic chocolate grown by the Association of Amazilla Women of the Caribbean, a rural group dedicated to the production of organic chocolate.
When your tour is over, you'll be returned to San Jose for hotel drop-off.
