Description

Cocoa route: discover one of the best chocolates in the Peruvian Amazon

At the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, you will discover Orquídea chocolate factory, only a few minutes away from Tarapoto city center!

Good to know before preparing your visit to Orquídea chocolate factory

Orquídea hygiene rules state that the visitors shall wear closed shoes, as well as pants. So don't forget to bring your sports shoes or ballet pumps to replace the sandals, even if the weather is very hot!

Should you come with anything else than pants, Orquídea will give you some adapted clothes for the visit.

Avoid wearing a strong perfume as well, because smells can influence cocoa taste on the production line.
