HIGHLIGHTS
  • Nature walk in the Rainforest
  • Visit a wild cocoa plantation
  • Cross a long hanging bridge over the Sarapiqui River
  • Make your own chocolate drink and bar
Your breathtaking adventure begins with a pickup from your hotel and a relaxing private drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside in an air-conditioned transportation. You will be heading to the Caribbean Slope, crossing the beautiful Braulio Carrillo National Park until finally arriving at our private property in the Sarapiqui Region, about 90 minutes' drive from San Jose.

Upon arrival to our beautiful property, you will have some free time to use restrooms and explore the surroundings before we start the nature walk to the cocoa plantation and suspension bridge.

In this three-hour activity, you will discover the marvels of one of the favorite foods of humankind - chocolate. A plant originating in Mesoamerica with an extraordinarily rich history, cacao, or chocolate, was one of the most important products of the Maya and Aztec, as well as other Central American cultures.

The tour includes a guided hike across the Tirimbina suspension bridge to a cacao plantation, as well as to a forested section where you will observe forest species of cacao and how the product originally developed there. During the hike, the natural and cultural history of the cacao tree is explained. Onsite, you will learn about the process by which cacao is processed into chocolate (harvesting, fermentation, drying, milling). Besides this, you will be able to taste some samples of chocolates you make yourself.

After the tour, enjoy a delicious lunch before we make our way back to your hotel in San Jose. During the driving back, our guide will explain about the local products produced in this rich region such as cassava, pineapple, heart of palm, sugar cane, pejibayes, black pepper and more.
