Halfway between Cahuita and Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in Hone Creek, this botanical garden and chocolate museum has a couple of small exhibits devoted to indigenous and Afro-Caribbean culture, a lush garden bursting with bromeliads and heliconias, and an onsite chocolate factory where cacao is processed in traditional ways.

Two-hour tours include a visit to all of these spots, plus a hike to a nearby organic farm. Any bus between Cahuita and Puerto Viejo can drop you at the entrance. This is a great outing for kids.
