A huge art statue of children raising cacao pod stands tall at their town plaza. It's a fitting tribute to the crop that provides livelihood and income to its people.

At their new municipal hall, beautiful brass artworks adorn the entrance of the building still conveying messages of how cacao improved the lives of the locals.

At the recent Sikwate Festival, an art competition (oil on canvass) was held and as expected the theme centers on cacao.

Truly San Isidro is fast becoming not just the cacao but also the art capital of the region. | via RAFIS11 Photo Credit: JB Sasam
