We will meet you at Papito's Caribbean Bar & after a walk along the sloth trail (with sloth guarantee!) we'll guide you through our chocolate farm & help you spot strawberry poison dart frogs, monkeys, toucans & other birds while we harvest fresh cacao pods for you to taste & you'll learn more about the different types of cacao. We'll then make our way to our chocolate making room where you'll learn how to make chocolate & get to try our artisanally fermented & roasted cacao beans, as well as some of our fresh, made from scratch, chocolate bonbons in dark or milk chocolate. One of our milk chocolate bonbons won first prize on the Showcolate Fair in Bocas this year so we promise you'll be in chocolate heaven! During a lovely walk along the hibiscus path there's some time to greet the farm animals & explore the fruit trees & flowers in Finca Montezuma's garden. We then invite you to discover our favourite snorkeling spot in a cayuco, a local dug-out canoe! If you're lucky you'll even get to see the resident bottle nose dolphins of Dolphin Bay in their natural habitat while making your way to this magical underwater paradise. Explore sea gardens of sponges, anemones and starfish and spot majestic rays and the occasional octopus! The lush mangrove island is also home to birds like pelicans, egrets & cormorants.
Dorien & Papito
Hola, we're Dorien & Papito, a Belgian-Panamanian couple! We bought an abandoned cacao farm in Dolphin Bay in 2014 & started developing it into an active chocolate farm with guest cabins, known as Finca Montezuma. We've been organising fun unforgettable off-the-beaten-path outdoor activities in Dolphin Bay for our overnight Airbnb guests & we're excited to now be able to let more people discover our special corner in paradise! Papito is an experienced captain with extensive knowledge about the best spots around the islands & Dorien is an avid chocolate maker with a great interest in the local fauna & flora.
You’ll taste some of the cacao fruit directly from the pod. You’ll sample the chocolate as it is fermented, dried, roasted,…
Snorkeling masks, life jackets
We'll spend most of this experience outdoors. We meet at Papito's Caribbean Bar & walk along the sloth trail (sloths guaranteed!) until we reach the lush forest & the cacao farm. We'll then go into our chocolate room to sample chocolate in its different stages. After a lovely walk along the hibiscus trail you'll have the chance to go snorkeling at our favourite local reef with beautiful sponges & starfish.
最多可有8位年满4周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 Participants should be able to swim or be willing to wait in the cayuco during the snorkeling activity.
There are dogs, cats, chickens and other animals on our property who may greet you upon your arrival.
