What people are saying about Alajuela Province

It was a really great tour - not too long, just the right amount of time. Perfect for families with teenagers as my kids also enjoyed it, especially the chocolate process demonstration. Was nice to be able to try different combo of toppings added to the homemade chocolate.

Great family time. The facilitator was very nice, pleasant and understanding. Even the children enjoyed this good time. The preparation of the typical Costa Rican dish was very instructive and very good to taste. The salsa steps were a good time
