I’m a huge chocolate lover. So when I found out about the option to go on a chocolate tour in Costa Rica at Blue Osa, I jumped at the chance.
There was just no way I could turn down to the opportunity to try raw, organic Costa Rican chocolate.
In my mind, I was picturing that we would be going to some chocolate manufacturer. Or an indoor factory, but I had no idea what was in store for us. When we pulled up to Finca Kobo, I was completely blown away.
I realized this was not any old chocolate factory.
Finca Kobo Chocolate Tour In Costa Rica
The next two hours proved to be a magical experience through the jungle of Costa Rica were we learned about the production of raw chocolate from seed to mouth!
The tour guide started out by walking us through their secondary forests where we tried star fruits, lemons (they were super sour), leeches, and white pineapple.
We even tried fresh coconut juice and learned how to cut open a coconut. (A good thing to know how to do, in case you need to survive the jungle one day!)
We learned how some jungle fruits are used as body paint.
Then, we learned about the entire chocolate making experience. This was all based on the ancient cacao agriculture process used during the Mayan empire
Last but not least, an amazing chocolate fest was waiting for us! And in the middle of the jungle! This feast included some of the best chocolate I’ve ever had.
Next time you’re at Blue Osa, go on the Chocolate Tour. You won’t regret it!
