Become a savvy chocolater! A former cocoa bean plantation embedded in the thick tropical forest of the nearby Sarapiqui basin sets the stage for a delighnul (and delicious) adventure. A guided 20 minute hike through the jungle and over a 1200 foot long hanging bridge is followed by a hands-on chocolate making session. From cracking open the cocoa fruit, to hand grinding and adding your favorite extra ingredients, the process is explained and peppered with fun historical tidbits about the “food of the gods”. Fun for kids and every adult’s inner child.
