Chocolate from Costa Rica

Sibu Chocolate Tasting Tour (Half day)

Like a wine tasting but with chocolate, Sibú’s Tasting Tour weaves culture, history and good humor into a lively presentation about chocolate and its role in Costa Rica’s pre-Columbian past and economic development.

Sibú’s owners and Master Chocolatiers welcome guests on this journey of the senses. It all starts with a sampling of fresh cacao fruit and roasted cocoa beans. You'll then try an indigenous hot chocolate recipe from the 1500s before savoring dark chocolate squares and classic European-style bonbons made on the premises. Sibú is known for pairing unusual ingredients that will deepen your passion for chocolate and change how you experience this veritable "food of the gods."
