We found the chocolate factory after two days, we weren't on a tour with others, but once we found it OH MY! Chocolate samplings, a history of chocolate and a store with anything chocolate you can think of. Delicious chocolates that you won't want to leave without.

Stopped by the Kaokao chocolate factory on our excursion in Cozumel. It was interesting to see how the chocolate was made by hand. Ruby in the gift shop was great. We sampled a large variety of chocolate, and Ruby explained how each different type of chocolate was made from natural ingredients. We ended up bringing quite a bit of chocolate... More

My friends and I took the chocolate factory tour and found it very interesting to see how chocolate is made here. After the tour they let you taste many kinds of chocolate...which all taste sooo good! They also sell Vanilla. There prices were reasonable and we all purchased something. You will have fun on this tour (especially if you like... More

We didn't have time for the tour. Next time would love to do it! It was a very nice visit to walk around and sample chocolates. Staff was very friendly.

We only did the tasting because we didn't plan ahead for the full tour but Oh My Goodness was the chocolate fantastic! This is a must do place if you are in Cozumel even just for one day like we were!

Our family of 4 (8 and 11 year olds) enjoyed this experience. You first watch a video that was interesting for the adults but at times lost the 8-year-old. Ruby, one of the eight employees at the Factory, then came in to go over the process with us. She then took us into another room to make the chocolate. Great... More

For a great air conditioned indoor activity in Cozumel, try the chocolate seaside workshop. This two hour experience teaches you about Mayan chocolate from the bean to the finished chocolate bar. You will learn about chocolate as a vegetable, grind your own beans, mold it and take it with you. The second hour you will taste 7 different flavors of... More

This was money so well spent.. The tour was almost two hours long. You got to see a film on the history of the cocoa bean and how they started using it for candy. After that we actually made a chocolate bar to take home to make hot cocoa. Then we went to the gift shop where she let us... More

We've had the tour before, so this year just went to purchase chocolate. We still got to taste every flavor they're currently making (no orange chocolate right now, darn), and ended up buying two boxes of ten (and you get one bar free with this), flavors of our choice. Especially good is the white chocolate coconut, but the hazelnut won... More

This was one of our sightseeing tour stops and it was nice to be shown the process of making chocolate from cocoa seeds. They were very friendly and funny as well. Quick stop and not a lot to do here.
