Learn why chocolate is good for you. Visit a certified organic and biodynamic spice farm growing vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, allspice, and several other tropical spices, essential oil plants, and ornamental plants, including orchids, bromeliads, and tilandsias. Take a gentle walk through the plantation on the "Epiphyte Trail", a winding garden-like path, where you will experience a myriad of sights, aromas, and tastes of the rainforest. The tour ends at a beautiful overlook where gourmet spice treats and drinks are prepared by the in-house pastry chef. The last stop is the famous Spice Shoppe, where you can stock up on vanilla beans, extract, cinnamon, cocoa nibs and other spices to use at home or give as gifts!
