|Cotton Tree Lodge, one of our favorite jungle retreats in Belize, has teamed up with Taza Chocolate, to offer a complete cultural and sensory immersion into the world of chocolate, for the ultimate chocolate addict.
In partnership with Maya Mountain Cacao they are collaboratively laying the groundwork for a single origin chocolate bar and the chocolate week enables enthusiasts to experience the process from bean to bar, from the spectacular surroundings of Cotton Tree Lodge.
Visit a local Cacao farm and meet the growers, learn about the production process, enjoy a chocolate making master class and make your very own bar of chocolate. There will of course be plenty of opportunities for tasting!
The region boasts a rich cultural history, lush jungle terrain and pristine waters, so the itinerary can be tailored to include visits to Mayan ruins, snorkeling or fishing day trips, horseback riding, trekking through the jungle or cave exploration… putting those extra cacao calories to great use.
Chocolate Week is scheduled for March 22-29, 2014 and rates start at US $1,195 per person. Can’t make it in March? We can craft a Cacao based itinerary, tailored just for you – have a look at our Cacao Crazy itinerary for more ideas and get in touch.
