What a good time we had and how we laughed! It was not just a tour of a chocolate plantation, we also observed frogs, sloths and other animals. We look for a fruit and cut it for later and with a lot of music and a good atmosphere to create the drink of the gods. From that hour and a half we left delighted and with good energy!

Very interactive and COVID-conscious. Do not pass La Fortuna without visiting this place! ASK THE GUIDE QUESTIONS: He knows a Lot about his craft.
