Chocolate Tour in Arenal
The La Fortuna chocolate tour is one of the most popular tours in Arenal Costa Rica. We take you to a local chocolate farm to see the chocolate-making process from cacao pod to the chocolate bar. Did you know that the cacao bean grow in a pod and the beans are grounded into a sweet white coating? You'll get to see this and realize the labor intensive and detailed process making chocolate is.
This is the best tour for those of you who are truly addicted to chocolate! This will be one of your favorite tours in Costa Rica. You will learn about the chocolate making process, from the cocoa plant to delicious end product... CHOCOLATE!
One of the things that clients liek the best is that you get to sample the chocolate at every point in the production process. This is the perfect tour for families and small children because it is very interesting to hear about chocolate's history, and it's current place in the world.
The guides are very knowledgeable, and you will find their enthusiasm for chocolate contagious! The best treat of all is the final chocolate drink you get to make at the end where you are able to add your choice of spices to it.
The cocoa beans from that plantation are sold to a woman's cooperative which makes chocolate bars that are for sale at the end of the tour.
