Mare and Isaac provided insight to a very organic and grassroots hands-on experience to processing cacao into delicious chocolate. They are flexible, open-minded and generous hosts.




Me la pase increíble! Aprendes mucho sobre el chocolate. Isaac es un excelente anfitrión y es muy flexible. No tiene ningún problema con llevarte o acompañarte a algun lugar. Me gane un amigo!
Recomiendo mucho la experiencia




Primera experiencia en Worlpackers y mejor comienzo imposible!
Los chicos me han recibido como en casa: amables, muy educados,hospitalarios y simpáticos. Me encantó compartir las comidas con ellos, aprendí mucho sobre la cocina oaxaqueña.
En referencia a mi colaboración en el proyecto, sentí en todo momento el apoyo de ellos a nuevas ideas, abiertos a innovar y muy atentos a mis recomendaciones. Son personas que trabajan duro en su proyecto y dejan trabajar también a los colaboradores.
El chocolate que preparan es riquisimo !

Mil gracias Chocolahj. Mil gracias Mare & Isaac




Mare e Isaac son grandes emprendedores! Nos han recibido con mucha atención y cordialidad.

He aprendido muchísimo sobre el cacao y su producción. Además, el propósito de todo el movimiento es rescatar una semilla autóctona de la región de Oaxaca, con lo cual transforma el proyecto y habla de un compromiso social y cultural de parte de los chicos.

Recomiendo absolutamente. Gracias por todo!!!
