Cacao Plantation and Community Visit Tour, Belize

In the morning after breakfast you will drive to San Felipe, a Kek'chi Maya village, to meet your host for the day, Juan Cho, who is a trained tour guide as well as owning an organic cocoa plantation.

Juan sells his beans to the Toledo Cacao Growers' Association, which ships the beans to Green & Black in the UK where they are used to produce their signature Mayan Gold chocolate bars, the very first Fairtrade product. You will be taken to visit the plantation on the banks of the Moho river where Juan will explain his organic farming methods and suck the sweet seeds inside the newly cut cacao pod.

After the plantation tour, you will be taken on a trip in a dory, a local dugout canoe, up the Moho towards Santa Ana village before returning to Juan's home to learn about the fermentation process and share a cocoa drink with his family.
