Hol leszünk?

We will begin our day with a brief talk about the history and purpose of our farm on the wood deck of our tiny home, a converted shipping container. The farm consists of an upper level agroecological produce garden and the lower levels of land in the cacao forest. On this walk through the forest, you will be able to identify birds, tropical and exotic fruit trees, medicinal plants, insects and mushrooms amongst other things.

WOW!! If you are reading this, go ahead and book your experience with Ricardo right now. My wife and I can’t speak highly enough about our experience at Ricardo’s cacao farm. Not only were we greeted with fresh picked (we literally saw his sons grabbing it off the trees) guava and passion fruit, but we then got to enjoy it while taking in an amazing landscape view of the mountains. We were given an insightful and intriguing history of PR and the farming lifestyle, which then lead into our tour through the farm/forest. Ricardo was extremely knowledgeable about the forest and it’s plants/animals. You can tell how passionate he is about his agroforestry work, he makes you feel inspired about it as well! Throughout the tour you’ll sample local produce, try medicinal plants (if you’d like), and get a true feel for how beautiful PR is. The tour concludes with tasting of the raw cacao and a sample of his *amazing* chocolate. If you read this far, please do yourself a favor and BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE. You will not regret it!

Incredible experience! My husband and I had a wonderful time at Finca Hekiti with Ricardo. As a farmer I was already very interested in seeing the operation but was amazed by Ricardo’s mastery of agroforestry in their biome. We enjoyed discussing cacao and all the subtleties of plant varieties, growing, harvesting and making chocolate along with native birds, plants and medicines. Plus their chocolate was the best we’ve ever had and I am a serious consumer! Absolutely worth the drive if you are in PR!

This was such an incredible experience and even better than I imagined. The farm is magical and Ricardos knowledge of the plants and animals in the area was very impressive. We tried so many fresh fruits straight from the trees and all of them were absolutely DELICIOUS. Let’s not forget about the chocolate…OH MY MY YUMMM. Definitely recommending this to all family, friends and anyone I come across. Thank you Ricardo for sharing your beautiful farm with us.

We got to meet Ricardo, he was VERY knowledgeable and you could tell he cared about what he was doing. We definitely learned a lot and made us all feel very comfortable asking as many questions as we could. The chocolate was delicious and I personally don’t even like chocolate. His farm was beautiful and well taken care of. This tour should cost more because of all the wonderful things. Also, the fresh fruit and healing leaves were amazing!

We had a wonderful time on this tour! I learned so much, not only about cacao, but about several other plants, and the culture of Puerto Rico. I feel inspired to grow some of my own food and resources now! I highly recommend this tour to anyone with a love of nature and sustainable practices, or just a naturally curious mind.
