Its a small cacao plantation. Our guide Candy was very nice and patient, she showed us how they make chocolate from the beginning to end and it was very interesting. The best part was all the tastings. Yummy.

This is a great little tour and a very educational stop. My tour guide led me through the entire process of how they make chocolate and we sampled things every step of the way. We also made hot chocolate from scratch which was delicious 😋
