Indulge in the rich indigenous culture of Watsi, get to know the secrets of making chocolate and cool off in the beautiful waterfalls of Bribri.

After picking you up from your hotel, we will go toward de Bribri Reserve, the biggest indigenous community in the country and also Talamanca´s headboard, where we will begin our visit to the indigenous community of Watsi. 

Our journey starts with a visit to the Awa, the Bribri´s doctor, who will receive us at his ranch with his family. There he will demonstrate some customs and history of the Bribri´s, as well as a purification ceremony for all participants.

The trip will procede with a visit to an indigenous family where 5 generations live together under the same roof. This will be a real close contact with this family´s lifestyle. You will get to know their houses, cooking, medicinal plants, chocolate production and many other aspects about their lives.
Also, you will taste chocolate with diffrent aromas and flavors. You will have the opportunity of grinding your own chocolate and get to know the secrets behind this old process. After the chocolate demonstration, you will join the family for a delicious home-cooked meal that will include typical indigenous ingredients. 

After lunch, we will move foreward to one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the area: the Rio Catarata Waterfall. After freshening up in its pools, we will begin our way back to our respective hotels.
