Ever wanted to make your own chocolate? Well, La Fortuna de San Carlos’ very own Rainforest Chocolate Tour gives you that opportunity! Set amidst the rainforest at the base of the Arenal Volcano, this tour will take you through each stage of creating the country’s famous chocolate, right from the harvesting of the plants to the final manufacturing. And yes, you do get to try your hand at it too!
The Costa Ricans consider the cacao tree to be a gift from the gods. In fact, not only was chocolate used at a ceremonial drink, but its seeds were actually used as currency. You can learn about this and many other interesting facts from the staff at the Rainforest Chocolate tour, while you enjoy everything from the history to the taste of chocolate in a hands on 2 hour program. Their tour guides are a crowd favourite, as they are full of anecdotes and interesting information about chocolate, and love a good laugh and cheer.
In this program, you can do everything involving the production of chocolate, like the harvesting of the fruit, drying and grinding of the seed, and also the developing of the traditional drink of the Costa Rican ancestors, and of course enjoying high quality organic chocolate while you’re at it. You can even grind your own beans and make your very own chocolate liquor to get the party started, or simply innovate and make your own flavour of original hot chocolate! Take your pick from chili, peanut, cacao nibs, orange and a whole lot more.
Needless to say, this attraction is a favourite for everyone with a sweet tooth. Visit the Rainforest Chocolate Tour without fail if you are a chocoholic!
