Cocoa is one of the most important elements of the indigenous culture of Talamanque. In the Bribri language, it is known as Tsuru. According to the Talamanca indigenous worldview, it contains the soul, the spirit of the woman who was chosen by the god Sibö as his companion, his wife. He materialized it in a plant with the purpose of feeding his sons and daughters with the drink of its fruit, chocolate.

Chocolate is considered a sacred drink; It is used in the main rites and cocoa is found both in creation myths of the world and in traditional rites of passage (births, deaths, initiations, marriages), as indicated. In this sense, cocoa has been present in the history of the Talamanca indigenous population since time immemorial, being one of the main constants in the historical and mythological accounts of Talamanca. However, over time it has undergone a series of transformations that have been linked to the more general socio-cultural context of the society in which it has been immersed. Undoubtedly, this perspective of analysis used allowed to show the dynamism of culture, which is created and recreated from and in response to the changes or transformations that occur in its environment.
