A lot of people like this place, and that's fine, but I think it's mainly aimed towards out-of-towners, and it's reflected in their prices. I looove me some good chocolate, and they're ok - but there are much better places (in my opinion).

Small but cute & our guide for the free tour was really informative & let us have loads of free taste testers! The workshops seem a little pricey but fun if you have free time & money. Shop sells loads of tasty chocolate too & bitesized versions for 2 soles if you want to try different flavours.

Our host Tommy made learning about chocolate just as much fun as all the tasting and making of it! Chocolate cream spreads and Pisco infused with chocolate, all with a variety of wonderful flavors, nibs for tea or bars of chocolate, soaps and shampoos... the list goes on and on! I am grateful for the education and loved the Mayan... More

Nice museum though smaller than Cusco's, nice "classes" on how to make chocolate and tea (delicious). Memorabilia on the pricey side.

Gone to quite a lot of effort to get it looking how it does. Everything you ever wanted to know about cocoa is here white, milk & dark. A young girl show you round & narrated some information to you parrot fashion with little or no interest in her job. The tour is free & you are encouraged to buy... More

I never actually went to the museum, but l did visit the cafe and l am afraid l was not at all impressed. The Hot Chocolate was luke warm and had gritty bits in it, which may be how it is made but l didn't like it. I had a HOT chocolate at The Meeting Place, in Cusco and it... More

This fascinating spot was an unexpected delight. Our guide, Aaron, escorted us to the small "Museo" where we enjoyed choco tea made from the husks of the cacao bean. Then we saw how the bean is received, how it is processed and the tools & equipment to create the dark, milk and white chocolate. It was amazing and it also... More

My daughter and I had a fun time learning about chocolate production. Marisol was a wonderful instructor. We chose the bean to bar tour and made two kinds of hot chocolate, roasted and ground our own beans, and made a tray of molded chocolates. Perfect activity for families. While your chocolate chills, you are encouraged to sit in the outdoor... More

We rocked up just in time for the workshop after hearing about it in our hostel. The 70soles was totally worth it. The host spoke Spanish and perfect English. Explained what the process of growing cocoa beans was and how they are harvested etc. Then we got into roasting, peeling and crushing our own cacao beans for our traditional Mayan... More
