FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Authentic Explorations of Costa Rican Harvests, History and Culture
MIAMI, FLORIDA (March 16, 2010) – Rain Forest Aerial Trams in Costa Rica, with Atlantic and Pacific locations, is launching its Caribbean Cacao Experience, for cruise ship passengers traveling with Carnival Cruises. Immersing guests into authentic Costa Rican culture, and history, the program traverses the Limon province. All this is sweetened by a lesson in traditional chocolate making.
The Caribbean Cacao Experience begins with a 40-minute air-conditioned motor coach ride to Hone Creek District, home to Cahuita National Park.
Upon arrival to the Cacao Trail property, guests take a close encounter with nature in the orchids and bromeliads garden. Next, they can discover the Ú SULE - a classic “tee pee” of the Bribrí and Cabecar Indigenous. Once used by the “Chamans” (healers), it has also been home to social acts and ceremonies over thousands of years.
Transport to the beginning of the century through Costa Rican art. Sculptures represent the life, style and history of original Afro Caribbean settlers. Visit the “burrocarril” station, an alternative transportation created by the Cahuitan community.
The sweetest step of the Caribbean Cacao Experience: learning the history of the Cacao. Interact in the traditional methods of chocolate making. Finally, enjoy a presentation of an organic banana and sugar cane plantation.
First established in 1994 in Costa Rica, Rain Forest Aerial Trams locations serve as wildlife reserves, ecotourism attractions and research parks. All Rain Forest Aerial Tram parks offer a unique combination of adventure and education. Guides are professionally trained bilingual naturalists. As experts in biology and natural history, they are committed to sharing the secrets and knowledge of the rain forest passed down through generations.

About Rain Forest Aerial Trams
The original Rain Forest Aerial Tram Atlantic was established in 1994 in Costa Rica by H.J. von der Goltz, a visionary and nature lover. It was the first operation of its kind anywhere in the world, with a unique requirement: it had to be built in the middle of 1,200 acres of dense jungle without impacting the forest. Today, five Rain Forest Aerial Trams located in Costa Rica (Pacific and Atlantic), Saint Lucia, Dominica and Jamaica, serve as wildlife reserves and ecotourism attractions. The exceptional combination of attractions such as the Tram ride, Bobsled and Zip Line plus the experience, training and commitment of a multi-lingual and naturalist guides guarantees an educational, adventurous and unforgettable experience for guests. www.rainforest-adventures.com
