Chocolate Tour

One Day

Description:

We will start the trip by visiting ancient Mayan city located in the lowland forests of Tabasco; this archeological zone of Comalcalco which is known as “the only city built with clay bricks.  The Comalcalco prehispanic settlement was an important commercial enclave in the Chontalpa region, which constitutes a transit zone between the Gulf Coast and the Yucatan Peninsula for connections with Central America.

Then we will visit the cocoa Hacienda Jesus Maria “CACEP” located in the Municipality of Comalcalco; in this place you will know the true story about how to make the original chocolate and tree plantations that yield this seed. Our host will take us in a fabulous trip showing how throughout centuries the cocoa was part of Olmecs and Mayans life and how those men turned cocoa into chocolate, how it was transformed into a luxury product in Europe, and how it has become a multimillion dollar business today.

We will be returning at the hotel or to the airport in the afternoon. End of service!
