WHERE WE WORK

Maya Mountain Cacao works in the southernmost Toledo District of Belize, a small country of approximately 350,000 on the Caribbean coast of Central America. Our name reflects the geographic location of most of our smallholder farmer network, which is spread out throughout the foothills of the Maya Mountains (see map above). We work with approximately 20 Mayan communities, extending south to Santa Ana, west to Pueblo Viejo and north to Red Bank in Stann Creek district.

MMC’s "Cacao House," our fermentation and drying facility, lies just south of the Maya Mountain range in between the villages of San Felipe and Santa Ana. The Cacao House shares a beautiful, pristine corner of the Belizean jungle with Cotton Tree Lodge, an eco-lodge on the banks of the Moho River. The fermenting and drying facility is open for visitors by appointment with Cacao House Manager Samuel Tzui
(samuel@mayamountaincacao.com).

MMC also has an administrative office in Punta Gorda town, or "PG," the capital of Toledo. Well connected with the surrounding villages by bus, PG serves as a meeting point for our staff and farmers.
