We had come prepared to this tropical extravaganza…we knew we would be walking in areas where it was wet so had all bought rubber boots. We saw flowers, we saw fruits and tasted fruits right off the plant. We even found a small birds nest while we were trekking through the plantation…what a visit. To see teeny tiny cacao pods and baby bananas, to split open a cacao pod and pick away at the seeds, which are a sweet sour taste, to watch how the flowers are treated and prepared for delivery, it was all such an experience. This is a huge place and demands hours to fully appreciate it. A circle of information really as you start out seeing where the plants are grown, then watching the fruit ripen and the flowers mature, then they are cut and taken into the warehouse where they are prepared to be shipped all over the world. From the warehouse to the coolers to the trucks to the planes to the florists and then to you!

And then when it was all over…we left our boots as we knew they would be put to good use and appreciated…
