    This is definitely a must see excursion!

    Braulio was punctual and picked me up at our agreed location. He offered to pick me up at my hotel. It started with a thrilling ride through the jungle to the site where the Bribri indigenous family lives. I learned a bit about the Bribri culture and history and about the native medicinal plants of Costa Rica. I got to sample the cocoa bean straight from the pod. So sweet!! I also got to process part of the seed and sample the result. The Catarata is the waterfall at the end of the tour you actually get to jump in and swim, remember to pack a suit and towel. The perfect end to a beautiful morning. I highly recommend this tour. Braulio is an excellent guide
    Great to make and taste...

    A must-do in Puerto Viejo

    Definitely the best experience in Puerto Viejo! Braulio was an amazing tour guide, he shared all his knowledge of the Bribri culture, the medicinal plants and the local fruits. The chocolate-making was absolutely incredible and so much fun. The waterfall at the end was just the cherry on top. Everything was just beyond expectations! Muchísimas gracias y pura vida :)

    Excellent Guide, beautiful plant Tour, so much to discover on a small piece of Land. All my questions were answered carefully. For our 8y old it was great, eben she did not understand the languages sponen. Thanks, would def recommend this
    Fabulous personal tour

    The chocolate making was not only fun but also educational. Braulio walked us around the Bribri site explaining the lifestyle and usage of the local flora and fauna. We saw rubber trees, turmeric, mint, frogs, walking stick bugs, and dozens more. The chocolate was delicious and fascinating. Then on to the gorgeous waterfall! He knew the time to go to avoid the crowds. We swam and soaked up that beautiful scene. Totally worth it. Would recommend
