Fodor's Review

Go right to the source to see how cacao grows and becomes chocolate at this organic cacao plantation. The two-hour tour, offered daily at 9 am and 2 pm, includes a naturalist-guided walk around the roughly 50-acre property, which includes gardens, orchards, and both primary and secondary forest. The highlight of the tour is the tasting—dipping an array of tropical fruits grown on-site into a pot of homemade chocolate fondue. If you don't have time for the tour, you can drop in for hot chocolate or coffee with a piece of chocolate cake at the pleasant garden café. You can also buy cocoa nibs and solid, heart-shaped chocolate for making fondue at home, as well as "chocoholic" T-shirts. Kids under 6 are free; ages 6 to 8, half price.
