Waterfalls and Tropical Farm in Hilo

This morning we went on a cruise excursion to OK Farms where we had a tour around the orchard and visited two beautiful waterfalls. Our tour guide Toni-Jo picked local fruits for us to try such as longans and rambutan, then took us to the mama cacao tree where she opened a cacao fruit and let us taste the raw seed. Then she gave us cacao kisses that had been dried and converted locally into 70% chocolate.

We visited Rainbow Falls, a huge waterfall to take photos, and Toni-Jo cut up loads of fruit for us to try and we cracked our own Macadamia nuts. Finally, we visited the spice orchard and then bought loads of chocolate from the farm shop!
