Gary and the GoAdventures...

Gary and the GoAdventures chocolate experience were first rate. We enjoyed every aspect of the tour and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Thank you very much friends for your recommendations, we hope more people can come and enjoy this educational experience about cocoa for chocolate
Not worth the cost

When we pulled up to the site and saw that this was part of the "Adventure Park," I realized this experience wasn't quite what I thought I'd signed up for.
First, though: The tour guide, Gary, was AWESOME. Only positive things to say about Gary!
That said, the overall experience was pretty lackluster. We learned a few interesting things about chocolate making, but it all cumulated in... hot chocolate? Everyone was hot and sweaty; the last thing anyone wanted was HOT chocolate!
The excursion was advertised as including "All-you-can-eat tasting of delicious Costa Rican chocolates" and that wasn't the case at all. Just the hot chocolate and a few pieces of candy made earlier in the day. We were told we could could purchase finished product on our way out, but it was just the same Britt stuff available in every tourist shop.
Kind of disappointing and DEFINITELY not worth the price.
Gary was awesome though.
