Cause they are going to be happy, cacao contains more than 300 of properties and some of them act in our brain releasing neurotransmitters responsables of our emotions.

We are not a staff, we are a family. We are a group of people in different places who fight for the same result the preservation and natural utilization of Cacao in Mexico. Family in Mexico is love, comprehension, support, company, good talks and good meals.

Isaac is so kind and chill with a passion for cocoa that is infectious. This is a good choice if you want a truly local experience and any food/plant nerds who are interested in the fascinating cocoa process. Learning about the fermentation was so cool and it was unique experience to stay with Isaac at his place. Allow lots of time for communication (over WhatsApp is best) as Isaac is busy and the time you come determines what you will be doing whether harvesting or fermenting. The coast of Oaxaca is hot and buggy, so come prepared, but the nearby beaches and local food are soooo worth it.

What I had read in other reviews is completely true!

When you finish your stay at Isaac's, you leave knowing not only that you have had a once in a lifetime experience, but that you have met a friend. it was the best part of my trip around Mexico and the work he is doing with such a precious and history-rich raw material is incredible!

I stayed with Isaac for a week and what can I say? It was a blast. He is an amazing host and he made my time in Puerto Angel super special by taking me to local spots, restaurants, beaches and Partys. Actually it didn’t feel like work, more like staying with a friend.
My tasks regarding the pictures for his Social Media were super chill and I could also learn a lot about cacao and meet local producers. I would highly recommend volunteering at chocolahj. :)

Conocer Zipolite, Puerto Angel y Mazunte fue realmente hermoso tanto por sus paisajes como culturalmente. Fue una gran experiencia de mucho aprendizaje personal. Isaac es una gran persona, y poder adentrarme en el mundo del cacao es maravilloso. Agradecida por cada momento. ✨
