The Taboa Atelier Charming Factory tour is a great option for those seeking evening activities, who like cultural experiences, or simply hope to savor the thorough tasting offered at the end.
Taboa Bar was one of the first bars in Bonito MS Brazil, still is the most popular, and continues to make the only drink from the state of Mato Grosso do Sul that is officially registered with Brazil's Department of Agriculture: The Taboa cachaça, which mixes cachaça (A Brazilian liquor made from sugar cane), honey, cinnamon, guarana powder and herbs. The Taboa drink can have special flavors, such as Guavira (A fruit local to Bonito's area) or coffee.
At the Taboa Atelier Charming Factory tour you will have the chance to learn more of this bar's history, which has a lot to do with Bonito's history itself and how it came about to be one of Brazil's main tourist destinations. You will also get to know some of the local culture through crafts and the stories told by the staff, because the tour employs local youth in order to provide them with professional development opportunities that open the doors to the careers that the tourism industry has brought into the area.
At the end of all this, you will have the unique opportunity to try several Taboa flavors and different kinds of teas from their own herbal garden. Neither the Taboa flavors nor the teas are available at the bar downtown. They are only for those who do the Taboa Atelier Charming Factory tour.
