Spend a day exploring the rural treasures of Puerto Viejo on this agricultural excursion. Taste fresh, exotic fruit straight off the tree, see how cocoa is grown and harvested, and find out how the bitter beans are turned into mouthwatering chocolate as you round out your day with a sweet surprise.
Meet up with your guide downtown and embark on a 30-minute walk out to a nearby farm, set in the thick vegetation of a rainforest. Get ready for a behind-the-scenes look at how they grow and harvest fruit and vegetables. Taste exotic fruit and native-to-Costa Rica vegetables as you tour the grounds, learning about agricultural and farm-to-table practice along the way.
Keep your eyes open for wildlife in the treetops above, like chattering toucans hopping between branches, and then take a peek at how cocoa is harvested. Try a few bites of the finished product yourself, and then close out your agrarian adventure with a return ride to Puerto Viejo.
