This is a family run farm that produces chocolate by hand. Although it is a little difficult to drive to the farm, it is well worth the trip. We went with my son (16) and parents and when we arrived we noticed one of our...More
The communication upfront was really good. We were also informed that the street might be flooded but that we are welcomed any time (4 wheel drive is recommended). The farm is located about one hour north of Quepos in the middle of nowhere, which was...More
It's a little drive to get there but well worthwhile. This is truly a family run farm and business. The tour is educational and "hands on". The young children will love it. Make sure to have the lunch afterwards.

This is educational and of fun for all ages. Jorge was a friendly host, knew a lot about chocolate in addition to cacao farming, and spoke great English. Kids will love it, but if you don't have any, bring your youthful curiosity and enthusiasm. Tasting...More
