Making chocolate is not only delicious but awesome!
With the view of the majestic Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna of San Carlos, enjoy the sweetest rainforest experience, discovering the ancient secrets of chocolate: from its discovery and use in tropical America to the processing of the product as we know it and enjoy it today.
In this 2-hour “hands on” chocolate tour, you will have the opportunity to learn interesting aspects of cocoa and chocolate from its origin and history, participate in all the production process from the harvesting of the fruit to the drying and grinding of the seed, also the developing of the traditional drink of our ancestors, and of course enjoy a high quality organic chocolate.
Once you get the chocolate energy we’ll drive to La Fortuna Waterfall Reserve, where over 4 000 ml precipitation a year give you the chance to enjoy this majestic 210 feet high fall; a five hundred meters downhill hike will give you the chance to see it from the very bottom where a “natural pool” awaits if you want to swim in La Fortuna River fresh waters.
La Fortuna Waterfall is a community owned project, which means that with your ticket you’ll be also funding projects like: the Senior Citizens Day Care Center, La Fortuna’s Water Treatment Project, art and music festivals and even the local Marching Band. It feels good to help others, isn’t it?
