I am a chocoholic so it is no surprise that I made it my duty to take the family to the Chocomuseo. We were given a brief history of the coco trees and beans and started our chocolate making experience from the real beans. We were given the beans to roast, made coco tea with the shell and had some... More

There is no entrance fee and so you are more than welcome to just have a look in, try some chocolate specialities (tea, liquor, marmalade) and have a chat with the very friendly staff.. For real chocolate lovers there are three 2h chocolate workshops every day (S70). There you learn and do all the steps of chocolate production, drink some... More

This is the place to go. We visited the Choco Museo and received an overview of the history of cocoa, saw a live demonstration of the chocolate making process, and ended by tasting a sample of some of the various products produced from cocoa beans. Our time was short so we weren't able to take the class, which looked like... More

This place is highly advertised but I thought it was worth the trip. There was a lot of interesting things that we learned there. The people who work there were fun and outgoing and they enjoyed giving our group a hard time when we tried the cocoa beans before they have the bitterness taken out of them. I definitely recommend... More

You should try it. Although its not only a museum, but rather a shop-museum, its worth the visit. You can find out about the chocolate history or take part in a workshop. We also bought some chocolate and a chocolate lip-balm.

This is not very much a museum, it's more a chocolate shop (various selections of chocolates, chocolate-flavoured cosmetics, coffee, cocoa, chocolate butter etc.) together with caffee. Nevertheless, you can take a chocolate-making class, which we really enjoyed. Classes run 3 or 4 times per day and it's recommended to make a reservation in advance (we made a reservation directly at... More

I consider myself a chocolate lover and Choco Museo was an ideal location to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. After a museum tour and chocolate-filled discussion with a young man named Achilles, we decided to move to the balcony and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. The chocolate paste was served with hot milk, so it was easy to... More

My friend and I signed up to take a chocolate making class and loved it. The class started with learning about cocoa beans and how they grow, then we roasted, peeled, and ground the beans right there, while enjoying three different cocoa-based drinks our teacher made for us.
