about this tour
Chocolate & Coffee Experience + Trapiche & Medicinal Plants Garden in Manuel Antonio
We offer a combination of attractions!
Firstly, the chocolate tour starts with the cultural and biological background of cacao in the world and here in Costa Rica. It further introduces you into the collecting, fermenting, grinding and finally the making of chocolate, the drink of the gods.
Secondly, we talk about coffee and its importance for Costa Rica’s economic and cultural development. We have a showroom with important coffee picking instruments and real producing plants to better explain the process of coffee production. We will show you how to make Café-Chorreado, the real Costarican practice of preparing coffee.
Finally, we will look at one of the most important aspects of Costarican culture and tradition, the trapiche: A sugar cane mill run by two beautiful oxen (Fast & Furious). Here we grind sugar cane to extract the juice and make all types of local and delicious candy (Dulce, Sobado, Espumas and Miel) you can try. This is for sure the sweetest tour in the area.
New!!! We have recently added a MEDICINAL PLANTS GARDEN TO OUR EXPERIENCE
We are in a private jungle-preserve only 10 minutes from Manuel Antonio. The presence of wild animals like sloths, monkeys, birds and frogs is common. Be ready for anything.
