Outstanding experience. We saw a lot, we learned a lot, and we tasted a lot. Our guide was excellent! He was knowledgeable and he kept very interesting and interactive. And he was funny. My whole family loved this experience, and I would recommend it to anyone who visits the Jaco area.

We had so much fun! Gary was an excellent guide and we learned a ton about chocolate that we did not know before. Plus we got to eat and drink some of the best chocolate I have ever had! Highly recommend this experience!

This was so fun and interesting. We got to make and eat the chocolate and learn all about the history of chocolate and how it is made. Our guide was amazing (Erik) and we loved every minute of this!
