We are thrilled to be partnering with Modern Adventures who have created the trip of a lifetime to Colombia with our “sourcerer” Greg D’Alesandre and multi-award-winning chef Traci Des Jardins.
This is the most exciting time in chocolate in centuries—and now you know why. You’re in deepest Colombia, searching for the best chocolate beans in the world. Your boat drifts through the mountain jungle as howler monkeys call out from treetops. You step ashore, then hike through the trees to where local farmers grow the ultra-rare white cacao bean. Afterward, you balance adventure with comfort as you celebrate with a dip in a private pool on a glorious Caribbean beach, savoring a feast prepared for us by an award-winning chef. The experience is more than just special. It’s magical.
Our journey to Colombia comes with perfect company. Greg D’Alesandre left a Google job to track the best beans for the pioneering small-batch chocolate maker, Dandelion Chocolate. Now he’s going deep in Colombia to discover the world’s finest chocolate at its source, with us at his side. Also along is chef Traci Des Jardins, a two-time James Beard award winner with a passion for foraging and farming. Traci is on a mission to explore Colombia’s regional ingredients and dishes, and to share an unforgettable meal with us.
This journey is for you if you love chocolate and adventure—preferably on the same day. We’ll meet Arhuaco cacao farmers, tube from jungle to Caribbean, stay in private beach villas, take art walks and salsa lessons, and eat very very well. Colombia is the adventure of a lifetime, and chocolate travel is absolutely the best travel! Join us.
