We started this adventure with extreme rains the night before. We were a little bit apprehensive about going. Our Main guide Kenneth picked us up right on time and was a pleasure to be around the entire day. He put everyone on the bus at...More

We were very happy with the shuttle service that we used for our travels throughout Costa Rica. I would highly recommend this company and especially the driver, Horacio. He was very attentive to our group's needs and was very knowledgeable about the best restaurants, grocery...More

Hi KatStam - Nice to hear from you. We often visit the Rainforest Chocolate Tour, but there are a few other venues. For example, Don Juan Coffee and Chocolate has a farm nearby and Finca Luna Nueva has a fantastic biodynamic... More
Hi KatStam - Nice to hear from you. We often visit the Rainforest Chocolate Tour, but there are a few other venues. For example, Don Juan Coffee and Chocolate has a farm nearby and Finca Luna Nueva has a fantastic biodynamic organic chocolate farm, as well. Hope this helps!
