Departure Time

10:00 AM
Meet a guide at your centrally-located Guayaquil hotel for a 10am departure, then travel to the family-owned cacao farm, a 30-acre (12-ha) property with cacao trees, tropical fruits, and rice. Upon arrival, learn how the farmers grow cacao, from sowing the seeds to caring for the cacao trees and harvesting the fruits.

See the fresh fruits of the cacao tree, then follow the fruit through every step of the production process. Toast the cacao seeds, then help to remove their husks, and grind the seeds to create a thick paste; this is the basic ingredient for finished chocolate bars, before milk, sugar, and flavorings are added.

Following your tour of the cacao farm, sit down for a typical farm lunch that’s made with organic ingredients grown onsite. This 4-hour tour concludes with return transfer to your Guayaquil hotel.

Excellent experience!

Had a wonderful visit to the cacao farm. Adrian, our tour guide from the hotel to the farm (and back) was very friendly and open. Simon, our guide on the farm, did a fantastic job explaining all the aspects of the farm and turning the cacao fruit into chocolate. It was fun to make our own chocolate, and turn that into hot chocolate that we could drink. Lunch on the farm was wonderful, traditional Ecuadorian food. Simon and Adiran joined us at our table and it was a joy to talk with them in an informal setting.
