Fantastic chocolate tasting, fun and informative tour of the cocoa farm and magnificent views (after a pretty strenuous climb). Then you get 10% off whatever you buy in the cafe for as long as you are in the area. Definitely worth the price and the time spent there.

Highly recommend this tour if you like chocolate. I did the tour in September with my boyfriend and it was amazing. Our guide Jeff (the owner) was such a cool guy. I want his life. He was very knowledgeable. Gave the tour in English and Spanish which I thought wa pretty cool and impressive. You do a bit of hiking and learning then you get to relax at the top with beautiful ocean views and taste all his chocolate. You also get to see the factory. I would definitely recommend this. Its the cheapest and best tour in Puerto Viejo. The coffee at Caribbeans is also great.

Stopped for a coffee and a peanut butter/honey/banana sandwich. The woman behind the counter was a bit rude and service was enormously slow even though it wasn't busy. The sandwich was good, but...it was a peanut butter and banana sandwich. (Sort of hard to mess up.

There was one woman behind the counter. Another was working in the kitchen. The woman behind the counter took our drink order, than made us stop and walk to the other end of the counter so she could then listen to our sandwich order. We were the only people in line, and she insisted we stop and then walk less than 2 feet to the side before she would continue to take our order. And no - it wasn't because she needed access to a pen or the register. It was a head shaker..,

Choose this as a group tour for a recent yoga retreat in the area and qas pleased with the experience. Our guide, Oskar , was funny and informative. The tour takes you through the production and leaves you with a deeper understanding of quality chocolate. The tasting was fun and interactive and plentiful! And, grab a brownie in the shop after! You won't be sorry!

We stopped by one afternoon for an iced mocha and a smoothie. I wish we would have had time for a full chocolate tour, but we were able to try the chocolate which was awesome. The iced mocha was unreal as well. My husband had a pineapple and passionfruit smoothie which was extremely tasty and refreshing. Next time we will definitely take a tour!
