On Bahia's Chocolate and Cocoa Route: Fazenda Provisão

By December 12, 2012

Follow me on:


One of the best ways to experience the culture, nature and food of Bahia's scenic Cocoa Coast is by visiting old historical cocoa farms which now offer day use or overnight stays.

One of the farms with the best structure for visitors in Ilhéus, the main city on the Cocoa Coast, is Fazenda Provisão.

The Novaes family personally receives guests - including international visitors on cruises, since the farm has been on receptive tours offered by a Salvador agency.

You can stay overnight or spend the day. On a press & fam trip by invitation of the International Chocolate and Cocoa Festival and Bahiatursa, our group enjoyed lunch on this farm which still produces cocoa - and toured the production stations.
