Engage in an immersive cultural experience and assist some enterprising women on this impactful day. Board the transportation for a 40-minute ride from the port to the small community of Altamira. Here, you’ll discover “Chocal”, a tiny organic-chocolate factory run by a group of local women committed to earning an income while remaining close to their families. You will have the opportunity to get involved with the cultivation of the cacao plant, preparing the organic soil and planting the cacao seeds in the local nursery. Then you will help produce and package the chocolate bars that are sold. Assist at several work stations to gain a broader experience. At the completion of this rewarding day, bid good-bye to the friendly local women who appreciate your support. This tour is produced in partnership with Fathom Travel’s cruise with a purpose initiative, offering an incredible opportunity to both enjoy a relaxing vacation experience and give back to the local community.
