Our Invitation to You

Join us on an immersive excursion in the the Caribbean rainforest we call home.
Come see how our passion for cacao, wildlife conservation, and sustainable development unite at Reserva Zorzal — our 1,019 acre bird sanctuary and organic cacao farm.

Our experiences offer hands-on learning across the cacao supply chain, starting with harvesting cacao at Reserva Zorzal and moving into the fermentation process at our nearby fermentary center. Visits also offer a healthy amount of chocolate tasting, cultural engagement, and fun in the sun.

We can’t wait to make memories with you in the beautiful Dominican Republic. 💜
