Ecotours

Embark on an adventure to discover our cacao forests!

This experience will connect you with the roots of ceremonial cacao culture. Check our tour calendar and join this complete introduction to the many aspects of the most human-friendly tree. We will talk about cacao culture and agriculture, politics and economy, as well as transformation and cooking.

We are what we eat. So why not be the seed of a friendly curvy tree, whose pods appear like dots of bright colours through the green patchwork of leaves and sun rays in the jungle? BE cacao - or at least meet that tree. Understand its roots and branches Meet who makes it thrive.  

 

When we invite travellers in an adventure to meet the cacao farmers we work with, we are each time-honoured to introduce them to the source of food they have been appreciating all their life. How many chocolate aficionados have had the opportunity of sitting by a cacao tree, meditating with its presence? Or of observing how it is harvested, how the beans are fermented and dried? How it nourishes different regional cultures and traditions?
