Aloha! We're Carlos and Krystal, and we are the co-founders of Kokoleka, a Kauai-based cacao elixir business dedicated to bridging ancestral wisdom with the modern world. After traveling to sacred sites all over the world for the last 10 years, we landed here in Kauai to share all the wonderful wisdom & healing practices we have learned.

The two of us fell in love in Guatemala while studying with the infamous "Chocolate Shaman", an archaeologist and healer who began the cacao movement in the 1970's. We love sharing our passion for cacao, known as the "Food for Shift". And we're so stoked to show our favorite Kauai secret gems with eager folks who are passionate about creating positive change on the planet!

What a wonderful, beautiful experience with wonderful, beautiful people! The water was pretty (and unusually) rough the day I went so our snorkeling opportunity was more limited than usual, but it was still an amazing experience. Highly recommend!

Krystal and Carlos were absolutely wonderful. It is such a unique experience to be apart of a cacao ceremony. They had so much knowledge about the island, and the ceremony itself was so eye opening and you feel so relaxed. There truly is a sense of connection by the end of ceremony. Afterwards you go snorkeling for awhile on such a beautiful private beach. If your contemplating booking this experience, I highly recommend you do so, it's worth it.

Krystal and Carlos are angels who take you to paradise. Very special event and they put in a lot of thought and passion. Very well prepared and had all the equipment. We even got to try Kakau from Guatemala! We highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in a mindful activity, snorkeling and meditation.

This is an experience thats different than what you would expect. Enlightenment through meditation and cacao, Krystal leads you on a spiritual venture ending with an amazing swim through an almost secluded beach. Great experience!
