A popular destinations for those who consider themselves to be "foodies," fortunately Boucan opens its doors to both guests of the resort and those who are not. They consider themselves to be the pioneer in cacao cuisine, and most can't wait to view a menu in which every offering consists of chocolate.


The bountiful and rare type of cocoa harvest from the resort's property inspires the menu. You'll find the subtle spice in almost every dish, sometimes as a delicate infusion, as the kitchen staff plays around with its use in both sweet, savory, and spicy dishes but always in a natural, healthy, and exciting harmony. You can bet that every meal is made to order, with the freshest ingredients available, and always local when possible.
