The Experience

Enjoy our nature, where you can find peace and nature sounds, around of rivers, mountains, where you can appreciate the Colombian Andes with a vegetation like in the Amazons, with huge trees complete green all year, every year, surrounded of birds with many colors and a lot of wild animales (of course, no dangerous). This area is famous in Colombia for our cocoa beans, used for chocolate makers to make the most delicious chocolates.

I had a wonderful time at Bosques de Cacao Yariguies! Miguel and his family are very caring and wonderful people. Miguel taught me a lot about cacao and how to work with it, as well as teaching me more about Colombia and its relationship with cacao. The food is great (you get 4 meals a day) and the farm is a wonderful place if you are looking for some time away from society. Plus, I got to eat a lot of one of the best chocolate in the world!

This has been such an amazing experience. The people are so welcoming and kind, they'll make you feel as a part of their family and will teach you about the cocoa process. The place is beautiful, perfect if you're looking for a getaway. The nature here is so pretty, you can swim in the river just by yourself and enjoy being surrounded by trees and gorgeous vegetation. It's a place for brave people though. Be ready for some hard work which involves farm animals and physical activity, but also for peaceful life away from everything. You should expect a long trip as well. Bring tons of bug spray!

I had a great week at Bosques de Cacao Yariguies. It's a very remote farm surrounded by lush beauty. I learned to harvest cacao and make chocolate bars. The host family was very kind and served delicious Colombian meals. Would recommend :)

It was great spending 4 weeks at the Finca de Cacao. An opportunity to learn everything related to cacao farming as well as chocolate making along with other activities related to living in the farm. It is a good opportunity to take time out for yourself most days there is no work after lunch.

The host family is very warm and love the food here. a recommended place to visit.
