Visited Costa Rica last month and had the opportunity to tour a couple of outstanding cacao farms while I was there. I would be glad to share that experience and contact information. Both were quite rustic and might be challenging for any kind of extended stay. Michael
If you wanted to change your destination (slightly), there are options here in Nicaragua for this kind of thing. Matagalpa (they call it the North, but it more like the center of the country) has a lot of cocoa production and some interesting things to see if you are interested.
Thank you so much for your input. I am absolutely flexible. Please let me know more specific details if you have them.
Great area. Lots of red and black 8)
Sarah, just be aware that October is THE absolute wettest month of the year in Costa Rica. With that said, I can suggest at least one place where you can ask if they will have you. If interested, contact me privately.
Hi Juan Pablo, Sarah, I can definitely recommend Finca la Amistad. It is in a wonderful rural area of Costa Rica. The farm is well run and the cacao produced is first quality. Peter
Thank you all for your responses!
