A garden to visit with some animals (goats, turtles, macaws and parakeets...) and a great restaurant with starter, main course and dessert for 62$EC per person (high-end service).

However, you should do without lunch in a stiff ambience - especially if you would like to drink a beer against thirst ;-) - alcohol is not served here.
Learn all about the making of chocolate. Your guide will take you through the gardens and teach about the local fruits and herbs but most importantly the cacao tree. You’ll taste and see fresh pods, smell the fermenting cacao beans, and feel and smell the drying beans. Sample some fresh cocoa tea. Be sure to meet Rainbow the talking Amazon parrot. At the end feel free to purchase some fresh chocolate for yourself or to bring home as gifts. The restaurant has a great lunch buffet. Reservations are strongly suggested. Enjoy a leisurely meal with live music and great views. Credit cards and cash accepted. Service was good and the food was delicious. Plenty for vegetarians!
Cool place- you get to see animals, the harvesting and roasting of cocoa beans and the process of making chocolate. They even let you taste the different types of chocolate. However, the offer of a standard tour for $50 USD is simply absurd.
