This municipality is located in the state of Aragua on the northwest coast of Venezuela to the west of Caracas. It is one of the most historic locations of the Criollo cocoa variety. Production began here in the mid 18th century with slaves, a few kilometres from the port of Independencia. At that time, there were on average 6,000 to 8,000 cocoa trees per plantation. This is also where in 1816, Simon Bolívar declared the abolition of slavery in Venezuela.

Current political instability is affecting cocoa supply, which depends largely on the state.
