We'll be tasting some of the best samples this country has to offer

When Cartagena was a Spanish colony, its inhabitants had to hide their local treasures, riches, and delicacies from being ransacked by pirates and their own colonizers. Now, Colombia can celebrate its treasures, like its world-famous rum and chocolate.

The best way to learn about rum and the coastal production of sugar is to pair it with another of Colombia's famous exports: chocolate, or, "cacao. " On this tour, our guests get a chance to learn about the production of Colombian rum and chocolate as they should be tasted: together and with friends. We'll be tasting some of the best samples this country has to offer.

Please feel free to contact me for more information about this unique experience. I look forward to toasting to our good health together!
