Depending on the tree production during the time of your visit, you will have the opportunity to view the cacao fruit, taste the fruit fresh from the tree and perhaps have the opportunity to harvest or plant cacao. When coordinated prior, for an additional fee, we can have a vegan Puertorican meal freshly made at our container home for the visitors to enjoy.

Waar je naartoe gaat

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.

My girlfriend and I had a great experience with Ricardo as our cacao farm tour guide. Ricardo was very knowledgeable in the different plants present on the farm, and we even got to taste different fruits and smell medicinal plants. We really enjoyed talking with him. After touring the farm we got to plant baby guava trees. Be sure to wear sneakers and long pants with socks and to also wear big spray and sunscreen. We definitely recommend this experience if you have an interest in viewing nature up close and enjoy being outdoors.

Such a fun experience! Ricardo was so knowledgeable, and he exuded passion about the forest, the ecosystem, the cacao, and Puerto Rico. This is clearly a family operation, and they make you feel so welcome. A must experience for visitors to the island!

You cannot come to Puerto Rico without visiting Finca Hekiti! It is located in the beautiful pueblo of Las Marias- a hidden gem rarely visited by international tourists, but adored by locals. We stayed in Las Marias, so getting to the location was easy for us. The roads are paved and cell signal is strong, so you shouldn’t have an issue getting there with GPS and their instructions- even in the mountains! Ricardo and Vivienne were communicative from the beginning and made sure we knew how to find the place and what to bring with us. The farm has an incredible view of the mountains. Be prepared to learn about the flora and fauna of the forest, and the wildlife that inhabits it. The tour of the finca is on the mountainside on unpaved trails, so be prepared with proper footwear and clothing. You will get an exercise, and it’s worth it! Ricardo was extremely knowledgeable, and we left feeling as if we had just taken a course on agroforestry (it is, after all, an educational farm tour!). He loves the land, and wants to do everything he can to preserve it for future generations. They are working to build a sustainable cacao farm within the native forest that will benefit the environment and economy. They understand the importance of education, and regularly work with students of all ages. It was an honor to be a part of this process! Lucky for us, we had this experience at the beginning of our trip. Afterwards, we were able to recognize many of the trees, plants, birds, insects, and sounds that we encountered throughout the island. I felt like the experience enriched my life! We were able to plant cacao trees and tag them with GPS with our own names! We also got to take home a cacao, china, and parcha! Ricardo took his time to make sure we understood everything, and after the tour, he gave us advice on fun things to do around Las Marias! We are so glad we went on this tour, and we hope to return to Finca Hekiti next time we are in Puerto Rico! Truly a unique and enriching experience!!! Thank you Ricardo and Vivienne! Fue un placer!
