Tobago, the sister isle of Trinidad, enjoys a warm tropical climate with an average day-time temperature of 29°C (83°F).
Historically cocoa was one of the major crops grown throughout Tobago. The particularly fine flavor of its beans won the isle fame and allows many large plantations, such as the Roxborough Estate, to concentrate on the production of cocoa as a viable cash crop. However, cocoa production has declined since the 1970s in the wake of hurricanes and other factors. A decline exacerbated by the disappearing skills of artisan cocoa production as many "old-timers" are no longer capable to work the land.
Visitors to Tobago Cocoa Estate have the chance to experience a piece of Tobago's past heritage and a taste of the future through our morning tours and whole day excursions.
All our tours include the option of a sunset Creole dinner followed by a rum & chocolate tasting. At Tobago Cocoa Estate we seek to bring to our guests the best of agro and culinary tourism.
