A Passion for Chocolate

A Passion for Chocolate

Marcus Wettstein, of Swiss origin, moved to Playa Chiquita over 20 years ago with his wife Claudia. There they raised a family of 3 children, now all grown up. He is also a pioneer by salvaging an abandoned cacao farm overtaken over by the monilla virus and resurrecting it into a thriving plantation with healthy fruit. Today visitors visit and learn about cacoa production from seed to chocolate bar - as it was done in the old days - and continues to be done today.
