Chocolate Tour

Chocolate TourDiscover the wonders behind one of the world’s most tantalizing foods — chocolate! The cacao tree originated in Mesoamerica and has a rich and extraordinary history, being one of the most important products for Mayan and Aztec civilizations, as well as other Central American cultures. The discovery of the Americas led European explorers to introduce chocolate to Europe, which transformed it into the delicious product known today.
The Chocolate Tour begins by taking you across TRC’s popular suspension bridge to a former cacao-tree (Theobroma cacao) plantation. During the walk, you will be exposed to the natural and cultural history of the cacao tree and, upon reaching the plantation, a TRC guide will reveal the secrets of transforming cacao fruit into chocolate. You’ll see the chocolate-making process first-hand and even have the opportunity to treat your taste buds to organic rainforest chocolate! After the tour, you can visit the TRC gift shop to purchase some organic cacao chocolate bars made by the Asociación de Mujeres Amazilia del Caribe, a group of local women from Pueblo Nuevo de Guácimo.
With this tour we hope to rescue our native cacao trees — one of the friendliest crops for the environment — along with the help of our friends from the Asociación de Mujeres Amazilia del Caribe who have seen a way to improve their lives through chocolate. Chocolate Tours are offered from 9–12am and 2–5pm. Reservations are required. Please book in advance.
