SO MUCH FUN! If you are interested in it, buy it here! I am so very disappointed that I didn't purchase the cacao tea. I thought I would be able to get it in the USA, but I haven't been able to find it! Take a chocolate making class as well! It was a lot of fun!

Interesting place, especially the historic overview where one gets to know the changing roles of chocolate from the Maya, via the Aztez and Inca to Europe - the value this commodity once had, compared to today´s mass consumption. Also plenty of opportunities to buy a great variety of chocolate and attend workshops. And museum is free!

I did the chocolate workshop and absolutely loved it! Even though I had already visited chocolate museums and cocoa plantations I still have learned new things and especially the funny instructor Pedro made the workshop a special event for me! I also love the chocolate I've made for myself :)

This is a store and chocolate classes school with a few displays on the history and processing of cocoa. They have a cafe and store that only sells their own chocolate products. Unless you want to take a class, a waste of time.

We went to the store, not the museum. Free sample bits of chocolate, tasters of chocolate liqueurs, and the best cup of hot cocoa around!!! It's well worth a visit!
