You will be collected from your accommodation in Pereira and driven north to experience Marsella, one of the most stunning small towns in the Colombian coffee landscape, taking delight in the remarkable mountain scenery along the way.
Once here, you’ll adore the style of the architecture in the Plaza (main square) of Marsella, the grandeur of the “Casa de La Cultura” with its giant chessboard, and appreciate the vibrantly colored houses.
From here a change of transportation to a 4×4 Willys Jeep is required to travel into a land covered with coffee trees, with views you have only ever seen in postcards or in movies. You will encounter a vast variety of lush shades of green in the mountains, the wonderful flavors of fresh fruits, and the highest quality delicious organic chocolate.
You will stroll amongst a plantation of cacao; savor the flavor of sweet mucilage in your mouth, while mixing it with tangerines, oranges as well as other fragrant plants.
Next on the farm, you will indulge in a wonderful typical lunch (sancocho), before taking part in the delicious chocolate process, taking the seeds, toasting as well as melting them into a scrumptious chocolate cream. You’ll also enjoy creating your own favorite delicious beverage or sweet.
After returning from your chocolate adventure you will have time to stroll through more of Marsella, enjoying the local architecture, amazing cemetery, and if time permits the botanical gardens as well.
