Cacao once ruled the Talamanca region, but few plantations are left these days. One friendly Swiss couple continues the tradition and shows you the workings of their chocolate plantation on their Chocorart chocolate tour. Follow the little-known life cycle of this crop from cultivation to processing. There's sampling at the tour's conclusion. Call or email to reserve a tour. Since these folks are Swiss, they can tailor the commentary in German, French, or Italian, in addition to English or Spanish.
