Toledo Cacao Festival in Belize

May 21, 22, 23. Chocolate, Culture, Wine cacao festivaland Music. A celebration of cacao, culture, and the rich flavors of the Toledo District of Southern Belize.
Cocoa has played a dominant role from ancient times, when the Maya first discovered the ‘magical’ process that transformed cacao into chocolate, right through to the modern day. The Toledo District of southern Belize is home to the organic cacao orchards where the pods are grown, harvested and processed, and later transformed into chocolate.
The Festival seeks to raise awareness of the Toledo District and its unique cultural and environmental diversity, promote sustainable tourism throughout the District, and extend the tourist season for the benefit of the entire community
