You will never want to try comercial chocolate again after you discover this whole magic world of cacao.
Cacao is a historic bean, from ancient sacred drinks of the Mayan jungles in Central America, to the New-hispanic Chocolate milk that we know now days. Learn all the historical facts about this ancestral sacred fruit.
Our Costa Rican Cacao experience includes a delicious meal at the local restaurant which is inspired on Caribbean typical recipes and traditional drinks.
You can add a coffee workshop that includes 3 coffee tastings + a traditional snack and 1 hour with a barista explaining the process of brewing specialty coffee. (The best quality Costa Rican coffee that you can only find in a few specialized coffee shops) + $10
