During our trips to Nicaragua our travelers partake in a "Bean to Bar" Experience that allows them to learn the history behind this aphrodisiac food and how the ancient Mayan civilization discovered and used chocolate in their cultural rituals. Travelers get to see first hand how the Mayans took the cacao fruit and turned it into mouthwatering chocolate - talk about TASTY learning!!!

They learned that the beans inside the cocoa pods could be harvested and made into a liquid-  that would become a treasured Mayan treat.
