Cacao in Costa Rica

The chocolate bean harvested from the cacao trees has a long history in Costa Rica. The beans were originally used as currency during the pre-Columbian times by indigenous tribes. Cacao was one of the major crops in Costa Rica until coffee and tobacco were introduced in the 1700′s. It remained an important export until a fungus swept through plantations in the 1900′s killing 70% of the cacao trees in Costa Rica. The majority of Costa Rica’s cacao is harvested in the Caribeean lowlands where there is plenty of rain and the land aid in the cacao growth. The crop is shade-grown and does not necessitate deforestation.

There are various Costa Rica tours available to visit chocolate farms with additional information on chocolate tourism in Costa Rica available at http://www.chocolatetourism.com.  Stay at the Chocolate Hotel to find out more about chocolate and brush up on some interesting chocolate facts - brought to you by CostaRicaCLOSEUP.com
