  • La Fortuna: Rainforest Chocolate Tour

    1. La Fortuna: Rainforest Chocolate Tour

    Visit a cocoa farm in the rainforest with majestic views of Arenal Volcano. See where cocoa is grown, processed and produced and unearth the hidden secrets of local chocolate production. This interactive experience lets travelers eat as much chocolate as they want while learning about the history, culture, and traditions of this popular Costa Rican sweet. In this 2-hour hands-on program, have the opportunity to learn interesting facts about cocoa and chocolate, its origin and history. Participate in all aspects of the production process, from the harvesting of the fruit, drying, and grinding of the seeds.  Discover why the cacao tree was very important to ancient cultures. Find out how cacao was not only used as a ceremonial drink, but its seeds were also used as currency because of its economic value, in many regions of Mesoamerica, including Costa Rica.

    This was an educational tour. It’s not a Willy Wonka factory but rather a walk through the history of the Industry and the process of converting the Cacao into Chocolate. You will participate in grinding the seeds, adding the sugar and eating your own creation. There were 15 people in our group. IMO, very interesting see the trees and learning about the process.

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.
