Honduras tour is perfect for chocoholics

2nd May 2013

Honduras has become the first country to launch specialist tours teaching about chocolate production that take holidaymakers up into the forest's shade.

The Central American republic gives tourists the chance to share the full food journey experience from cocoa bean to chocolate.

It's done from the unusual vantage point of the El Ocote Ecotourism Park and Resort.

A highlight of this tour is a 1.5km (0.93 miles) zipwire that links a string of 10 platforms surrounding the cocoa plantation.

A traditional feast featuring the locally sourced chocolate and a dip in one of the park's natural pools awaits at the end of the day's excursion.

Even pre-chocolate tour, the park has always been a favourite for family time since it was founded in 1993, with its swimming, horseback riding and bird watching.

The Honduran Association of Ornithology recorded 80 species of bird living in the park during a three-day trip to El Ocote, but the actual number might be even higher.
