Founded in 1899 by American entrepreneurs Minor Keith and Andrew Preston to transport bananas to the U.S., the company was acquired by Chiquita Brands International in 1984. Step inside the 116-year-old building for a guided tour and a sampling of locally-made treats.

SNACKS
Following a tour of the United Fruit Company, you'll be treated to samplings of traditional foods, popular sweets, and roasted chocolate beans.

SHOPPING
A roadside stop includes a visit to a local fruit and souvenir store where you'll have a chance to purchase locally-made souvenirs, fruits, natural drinks, cocoa butter balm for lips and body to take back home.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
A drive through the countryside takes you along picturesque coastal roads and past the banana plantations of Bananito Village, a planned community designed for plantation workers.
