In 2012 Belcampo Lodge is going to open its agri-tourism center along with epicurean classes focusing on cacao, coffee, and rum. Guests can then tour the cacao farm, taste different varieties of the cacao fruit, and make custom chocolate bars. The lodge is also planning to offer courses that will teach participants the skill and artistry of chocolate production. The coffee-lovers will be able to participate in the process of coffee making: pick up the cherries, pulp and then roast them. Visitors interested in rum will have the chance to observe and participate in the distilling process as well.
