It was worth the hike up the hill to this natural oasis in the rainforest. Very peaceful environment with a limited menu of all organic food, desserts, and drinks.

Delicious chocolate farm up on a hill in the Caribbean Ocean! Go there if you are in this area, get the brownie and some love for your skin.

We had a wonderful tour of the farm and then a tasting of many of the items grown on the farm. I highly recommend it if you are a bit adventurous. It is a bit of a hike up the hill and can be slippery....More
