grinding cacao - rainforest chocolate tour

Rainforest Chocolate Tour

Join our Rainforest Chocolate Tour starting with a pickup from your hotel. We’ll take you to a cocoa plantation near La Fortuna in the Arenal area, where our friendly staff will welcome you. Your guide will share the story of chocolate and lead you on a walk through the cocoa plantation. You’ll learn how cocoa trees grow, including their flowers, fruits, and the animals that depend on them.

Discover the chocolate-making process, from drying the seeds to fermenting, grinding, and roasting the beans. During the tour, you’ll taste a delicious chocolate drink with the option to add different ingredients—all included in your experience!. This eco-project was created by Mr. Carlos Chavarria, a former director of the La Tirimbina Biological Station’s Department of Environmental Education. He’s a naturalist guide who loves sharing his knowledge. Supporting this project helps educate others about conservation. Your visit not only lets you enjoy chocolate but also supports conservation efforts. Come join us and learn about chocolate in the rainforest!
