The Chocolate Farm

This tour features one of our most important native trees… chocolate! Due to the abundance of fruiting trees, there is plentiful wildlife in the area; particularly toucans and other colorful fruit eating birds, and sometimes squirrel and white-face monkeys. In order to contrast experimental techniques of cultivation developed at the farm, the tour commences with a stroll through a traditional cocoa plantation.

After a brief walk through flat land rainforest, we come to the experimental organic cocoa plantation where we learn about new methods of cultivation. We pass through an area of experimental agriculture, including a medicinal plant garden. The tour concludes with an offering of fresh fruits produced on the farm, along with pure chocolate sauce for dipping and tasty baked plantains. Closed-toed shoes are required for hiking.
