cacao plantations

Hi all!

I am doing my BFA thesis on chocolate and as I have been extensively researching, I’ve been finding it difficult to gather specific information on cacao plantations in Mexico. Info like where they’re located (towns, regions, whatever), the type of bean they grow, etc. And yes, it has to be Mexico, not any other of the gazillion locations around the equator where cacao thrives. If anyone has any leads, they’d be greatly appreciated.

I’ve been looking on the web mostly and have nearly all the well-known sites bookmarked such as the World Cocoa Foundation.

Also, does anyone know where I could get my hands on an actual cacao pod or the beans before they’ve been roasted???

Thanks in advance!
