Jungles of Talamanca
Jungles of Talamanca information
West of Puerto Viejo, the Jungles of Talamanca is actually a small tropical nursery and cacao finca . This Bribrí family welcomes visitors to its home, where you can see cacao toasted over an open fire, then hand-ground into delicious chocolate or rich cocoa butter. Nutmeg, black pepper or cinnamon, all grown onsite, may be added. The resulting product is truly decadent – it’s amazing that something so luscious comes from such humble origins. This place is 4km out of town, on the road to Bribrí; look for the sign just past the clinic.
