Know More about this tour

The adventure begins with the boat ride from town, which brings you down through beautiful Dolphin Bay. You may even be lucky enough to spot some of the resident dolphins on the way. When approaching Green Acres you will observe from a distance the lush botanical gardens surrounding our home.

Before we "hit the trail", your Chocolate Farm tour will begin with a brief history of the property and the farm. We will then make our way along an easy to moderate, well worn path through the rainforest. Our tour guide will spend time pointing out indigenous trees and medicinal plants and explain how many traditional Indian uses are still in practice even to this day.

You will see the extensive plantation of cacao trees and get to open a pod straight from the tree as you learn more about cacao and our farming methods.

The highlight is the visit to our "chocolate factory". Here you will see the cacao at various stages of it's production, as it ferments and dries prior to its transformation into our 100% organic chocolate, nibs and other sumptuous products. No sugar is added and no cocoa butter is removed. We will also tell you lots of interesting facts about chocolate and it's health benefits!

We end the journey back at the house where you will have the opportunity to chat and ask questions while taking a cool drink and, of course, trying samples of our homemade chocolate products. All of our products are available for purchase.
