Departing from the charming Bocas Town pier, this excursion invites to visit the Oreba Farm, famous for its cocoa production in the native Ngäbe community of Rio Oeste. This tour will take you through the process of organic cocoa production cultivated under the tree shades, accompanied by a guide who will explain all the steps including cultivation, harvesting, fermentation, drying, roasting and finally making chocolate.

The tour is conducted by a local Ngäbe guide and includes an adventure hike through the dense forest to reach the cocoa farm, while the guide explains the process, and luckily you will see a variety of wildlife like frogs, sloths and birds. The highlight of the tour is when local women teach visitors how to make chocolate the way they have been doing for centuries.

All these activities take place within the farm, in an open traditional ranch with palm-frond roof, which makes the demonstration of chocolate manufacturing even more special. The tour ends with a traditional Ngäbe lunch based on fresh local ingredients such as vegetables, roots, rice and chicken.
