Such a beautiful experience! We had a tour of the property that focused on the plant life with fruits prepared for us. It was delicious! Following all the fruit eating we got to pick a cocoa pod and tried the seed fresh, it was better than any store bought candy. We experienced the chocolate process and got to enjoy the final product. The tour was full of delicious flavors and information.

This tour was worth every cent and more! Beautiful location, delicious fruit and chocolate, and the family who runs the place is just the sweetest. We ever saw a parrot and some toucans!

Excelente tour, Don Olivo y su hijo nos explicaron muy bien toda su finca, y hasta el proceso de tueste y molido de cacao . Le recomendamos la experiencia

Bon tour globalement, car toute la famille qui tient cette « ferme » est très sympa. Dégustation des fruits du jardin, de la canne à sucre…etc. Par contre mon petit bémol c’est que le tour ne se consacre du coup, selon moi pas assez sur le chocolat, et sa fabrication.

Un tour muy recomendable, nos enseñó de todo tipo de frutas y plantas. Nos dio de probar muchas frutas y otros alimentos ricos, a parte que la explicación de todo fue genial .
