I'd read about ChocoMuseo online and thought it would be a cute place to check out whilst in Cusco as an alternative to the history side of town (which is excellent). I was pleasantly surprised to discover the chocolate significantly helped the altitude sickness! The museum is a small space that provides tours by knowledgable guides fluent in many languages,...

We had an absolute blast at the Chocomuseo. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. Our instructor was fun and top notch, and we left with a great deal of knowledge and chocolate!

A small, but educational museum that illustrates every step of the chocolate making process. The best part is enjoying the view from the balcony while sipping on the delicious "Maya" and "Conquistador" hot chocolate. A must!! Both are equally tasty, so splurge and try both!!

For about $25 per person, you get a 2 hour chocolate lesson and get to make some to take home (takes 45 minutes to cool). We had Achilles as our instructor, and thought his jokes were silly, but really enjoyed him. He prepared us 3 drinks and taught us a lot we didn't know. We really enjoyed the experience.

We did the workshop here to learn about the chocolate process and have a go ourselves. It was simply brilliant fun and really educational. We had pedro doing the workshop and he was excellent. We spent a few hours here and it was well worth it. You also get to take your own made chocolate home! Enjoy

We took a tour of the chocolate museum and had a wonderful time. Entry is free, and you get to sample chocolate bars, jams, and liqueurs. The people are friendly and speak wonderful English.

We went in Lima, Baraconna district and had a super time. Roasted and ground our own beans for cocoa tea, hot chocolate and chocolate. We had the process explained from beginning to end. The only thing missing was the actual cocoa pod to see. A fun afternoon and we brought our chocolate home!

They'll teach you a lot about chocolate, and you can taste their chocolate too. There's a workshop for those who want to make their own chocolate, and a very delicious cafeteria. Its really worth visiting!

The workshop explaining the process of chocolate manufacturing is interesting, beside the visit of the museum. You can book your participation before, we did it on the day of our visit since they did not reply our emails. However, an enjoible experience and a good chocolate bar as a reward.
