El Castillo del Cacao - Other Activity Matagalpa - Nicaragua

Chocophiles unite! A tour through El Castillo del Cacao takes the visitor through the process of chocolate production, from the roasting of beans to the packaging of bars. The small factory, shaped like an oversized mini-golf castle at the whim of the Dutch owner, even provides fresh juice and brownies to patrons, so come with room for dessert. In the chocolate molding and packaging room, visitors will have the opportunity to taste the latest confections, all of which are made of at least 50% pure cocoa. Dark and organic, eating a morsel is like mainlining dessert. On display in the reception area are global chocolate paraphernalia, including a chocolate condom (riiiiiiico!).
