    Stop At: Rainforest Chocolate Tour, Road to Waterfall of La Fortuna, In Front of Cabinas La Catarata, Arenal Volcano National Park, La Fortuna de San Carlos 856-3000 Costa Rica

    Considered as "a gift of the Gods", the cacao tree was very important to the ancient culture. It was not only used as a ceremonial drink, but its seeds were also used as currency because of its economic value, in many regions of Mesoamerica, including Costa Rica.

    In this 2-hour “hands on” program, you'll have the opportunity to learn interesting aspects of cocoa and chocolate, from its origin and history, participating in all the production process, from the harvesting of the fruit, drying and grinding of the seed, also the developing of the traditional drink of our ancestors, and of course enjoying a high quality organic chocolate.

    Was just okay, nothing exciting. The tour guide was nice though. It was interesting to learn about the process of chocolate making at the plantation. And luckily, it didn't rain

    I am so sorry, I am seeing this now. Yes I believe they charge for kids above 6. This is not my business. I was a visitor.

    The tour bus picks you up from the hotel. It takes place in a small chocolate plantation. I'm not sure what the area is called.
