Julio Caqui is a master chocolate maker who offers two-hour farm-to-factory tours including a trip to the cacao plantation. The full process is explained right through to the finished bar of dark chocolate. The guide takes you through a cacoa orchard to educate you about the origin of the plant and in-depth information about plant and its significance to the ancient mayans. After a brief tour in the orchard, you are taken to a chocolate factory where you can witness how organic chocolates products are made and you can also participate in making your own chocolate bar.
