ITINERARY

Discover the fascinating world of chocolate as industry experts guide you through the process of turning cocoa beans into delicious chocolate. Along the way taste hot cocoa, have lunch, and get a chance to make your own chocolate bar.

Start your tour at the beginning of the process, including planting, growing, and then anticipating the harvest—when it's time to cut and remove the beans of a pod of cocoa. Then hear about the steps of fermentation and drying, crucial elements separating excellent chocolate from all the rest.

Along the way learn about the particularities of Dominican cocoa and what makes the island's ecosystem the perfect habitat for high-quality chocolate. At the Chocolate Factory of Esmeralda, move along to the final steps of making chocolate as exquisite aromas fill the air. Have a chance to try making your own chocolate bar before you enjoy a Dominican-style lunch.
