Cacao in Costa Rica
Cacao is a product that has always been very important for the Costa Rican territory. In fact, during pre-Columbian times, chocolate was a sacred and ceremonial drink throughout Mesoamerica (Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica). For the first settlers of the current territory of Costa Rica, cocoa was the “food of the gods”.
Currently, most of the cocoa cultivation is located in the Caribbean, North and Brunca regions. For this reason, the cantons of Talamanca, Upala and Limón are positioned as the top three chocolate producers in the country.
Thanks to its geographical location, climate and ideal soil, Costa Rica has been characterized as one of the countries in the world where high quality cocoa is produced.
Giovanni Palavicini tells us a little about the problems of cocoa production in Costa Rica in this article: The problems of cocoa production in Costa Rica – Part 1 – SensorialSunsets.
