Great time on Christmas day
 
We joined Margo on Christmas day for the Cacao Day experience and had a wonderful time. Our group included young children (5 and 2) as well as seniors and the activities Margo arranged were a good time for all of us. Overall a great time and a nice conclusion to our trip to Mexico!
