Ecuador for Chocolate Lovers

  • The Savvy Traveler 112 5th Avenue South Edmonds United States (map)

Join Chief Chocophile Lauren Adler of Chocolopolis for a presentation on her upcoming Ecuador Chocolate Expedition with travel partner, Global Family Travel. Lauren gives a presentation on Ecuador’s historical role in chocolate and cacao followed by a short chocolate tasting and information about the May 2020 trip itinerary.

 Not only does Ecuador have an ancient cacao tradition that dates back centuries, but it is home to a vibrant, modern craft chocolate scene that offers excellent cacao and chocolate to taste and enjoy.

 On the Ecuador Chocolate Expedition we'll visit the cloudforest of Mindo and the jungles of the Amazon in search of cacao and chocolate, and we'll enjoy great food and chocolate in Ecuador's urban metropolis, Quito. There will be a lot of chocolate to taste along the way, including some of the most expensive chocolate in the world. This is a great adventure for chocolate lovers who want to immerse in the history and farming of cacao while also experiencing Ecuador's unique history.
