The experience is beautiful, show the process of obtaining chocolate from the plant, you can try from cocoa fruit to chocolate bar, but it is not a plantation dedicated to the production of cocoa or chocolate, which was what I expected; It is an "adventure" park.

Very fun and informative tour of where chocolate comes from and is made. Perfect for all ages. We got to taste the chocolate at each step! The guide made it fun as well.
