What You Can Expect

After picking you up from your hotel we will go towards the Bribri Reserve, the biggest indigenous community in the country and also Talamanca ?s headboard, where we will begin our visit to the indigenous community of Watsi. Our journey starts with a visit to the local Shaman, who will take us on a wonderful journey exploring the traditional BriBri healing methods and medicinal plants. Afterward, our journey continues to an indigenous family, where 5 generations live together under the same roof. This will be a real close contact with their lifestyle. You will get to know their houses, cooking, medicinal plants, chocolate production, and many other aspects about their lives. You will taste delicious, handmade chocolate with different aromas and ?avors. You will have the opportunity of grinding your own chocolate and get to know all the secrets about this old process.
