体験できること

Experience the life of the chocolate forest on this nature hike through a pure jungle and organic cacao farm, learning all about and tasting cacao on every step of the tree-to-bar chocolate journey.
Our adventure begins on an organic cacao farm, where you will be introduced to this food of the gods while we walk through a fair-trade cacao processing operation. You’ll learn about the history of cacao from ancient civilizations, and see how it is processed today to become chocolate. You’ll get to taste everything at each step of the transformation from raw fruit to processed, roasted, and evolving forms of chocolate.
This is a nature hiking experience, and we’ll ascend to some spectacular ocean views. I’ll introduce you to the cacao forest, teeming with life as we see first-hand what makes a pure jungle, and how this is the ideal ecosystem not only for cacao but much more.
We’ll sit down at another ocean view to enjoy an intense chocolate tasting experience. This is for true chocolate lovers! I’ll serve you the original ancient chocolate, a hot drink made by the Aztecs and Mayans. Then you’ll get to try the first ‘new world’ chocolate, and learn about its evolution to modern-day. Finally, you’ll try our own European-style pure chocolates in a variety of sweetness’ to let you re-discover what real chocolate is!

実施場所

A private organic cacao farm & learning centre, a 4ha/10acre space located between the towns of Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. Our property fronts Cahuita National Park with plenty of views of the park, ocean and the last living reef in the region. We are located in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by cacao, pure jungle and forest. We are in the absolute midst of nature enveloped in life with the many resident monkeys, sloths and other animals.

Ahki is a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of chocolate from fruit to final product. He really took the time to answer all our questions and It is obvious how much he loves what he’s doing and sharing.

It was fantastic doing the walk with Ahki and learning so much about cacao. Ahki's daugther, who was about the same age as our daughter, joined us on the hike and her input was delightful and thoughtful. Their deep respect for nature and appreciation for the ecosystem that supports the cacao they grow was very evident and moving. The chocolate tasting at the end with the beautiful view in the later afternoon light was a perfect way to end the tour. Ahki has created a well-crafted experience, with depth and focus. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. As a side note, I have become much more aware of where both chocolate and fruit is coming from and who is producing it.

It’s beyond obvious that Ahki, his family, and the volunteers helping at his farm are passionate about their mission. Ahki was super knowledgeable about not only cocao plants themselves and the history and culture of the land, but also the economic impact. Ahki was genuine and engaging, he shared with us his vision for helping the local cocao farmers make a sustainable living from their high quality product. The tastings were also the best ever! Make sure to bring some cash with you so you can purchase some of this goodness before you leave! I will say it was mildly tricky finding the location due to no GPS address or Google maps coordinates, and we were worried we may be going down the wrong road at first, but we got there and it was well worth it! Highly recommend you visit!

Ahki and his adorable daughter are incredibly knowledgeable cacao experts! We had a wonderful time learning about the entire cacao process, from how it grows on the trees, to fermentation, and all the way to the formation of what we know as chocolate. The experience was fascinating and incredibly enjoyable. We loved walking through Ahki’s land and tasting every part of the cacao process – amazing to see how the taste changes along the way. He’s a lovely man and his passion for sustainable cacao farming (and sustainability as a whole) was very inspiring. The final tasting was on top of a little hill with a stunning view out to sea! It was MAGICAL.

If you really want to know something about REAL cacao than this is the tour for you. Ahki is super passionate and knowledgable about everything cacao has to offer. You will also gain some knowledge about sustainable farming, direct trade, why cacao was named the most eco friendly plant and much more. At the end of your tour you will taste different chocolate & drinking cocoa with a stunning view. The only downgrade was that we hadn’t the chance to buy the cacao or drinking cacao we tasted at the end because at this moment he was out of stock. I guess in a world we you can get anything, anywhere & anytime that was a valuable lesson for me ;) thank you Ahki & keep up the awesome work!

Doing the Cacao tour with Ahki has been a wonderful experience. A part from learning a lot about the cacao, its cultivation and the transformation process into chocolate, we discovered an amazing NGO and a family with a special purpose. The passion of Ahki has guided us through the history, the politics and the science of cacao plantation in Coata Rica, leaving to us the curiosity to further discover this fascinating world. Very happy to have chosen him over the touristic offers you get in Cahuita/Puerto Viejo. Also the price was very competitive comparing to other tours. I don't even want mention how fantastic was his chocolate testing....top! If you are in the Caribe Sur, we strongly recommend it!!
