The tour was very detailed how chocolate is made from start to finish. The hot chocolate was amazing as was the chocolate over fruit and the miniature chocolate. Unless you want to learn all of this, this tour is not for you. Very little walking. Our guide knew his stuff. I enjoyed it.

Outstanding experience. We saw a lot, we learned a lot, and we tasted a lot. Our guide was excellent! He was knowledgeable and he kept very interesting and interactive. And he was funny. My whole family loved this experience, and I would recommend it to anyone who visits the Jaco area.

La experiencia es bonita, muestran el proceso de obtención del chocolate desde la planta, se puede probar desde la fruta de cacao hasta el chocolate en barra, pero no es una plantación dedicada a la producción de cacao o chocolate, que era lo que esperaba; es un parque de “aventura”.
