Found this gem our first morning in the area & enjoyed a perfect cappuccino served with an excellent square of local chocolate on the side. Later, locals informed us it's the best coffee place around!

Awesome tour with up close and personal views into the world of organic chocolate making. Lots of amazing chocolate tasting. Beautiful property with lots of animal sitings. The owners are dedicated to the environment and support of the local Costa Ricans.
