The ChocoMuseo is a great shop to take a tour of the history of chocolate and to see first hand the process of making chocolate items. The staff is professional and helpful and has items for sale that make very nice presents. Needless to say, the chocolate candies are incredible and you can make your own in class as well!

This place has lessons with chocolate and we saw many a happy group around their table by the window as we passed several times a day on our visit. We popped in to read about the cacao history in the area and to buy gluten-free brownies -- which sell out so buy more than one!

A good place to spend an hour - and it's free to walk around. There is good information on the chocolate process, who produces it and who eats it. You can have a go at making your own chocolate. Those that did really enjoyed it.

While this was a bit more than our budget could afford it was an absolute delight. Pablo was a wonderful teacher and entertainer and all the forms of chocolate we made were delicioso. This is great fun for adults and kids...we really loved the chocolates we made in the class.

I absolutely LOVED the Choco Museo!! As a self-confessed chocolate addict, I smelt the Museo before seeing it! It is a great place to learn all about the history of chocolate, sample some delish items, and I highly recommend doing a class, especially with Pablo. He is a wealth of information on the subject, as well as being highly entertaining.... More

We visited this chocolate shop with a group recently, and enjoyed the educational program offered there. We learned about the growing and developing process, and also got to make some candies. The young man who led the group was entertaining and knowledgable.

I like that they sell they product but telling the process and the history behind it.!

We just did a class at the chocomuseo, it was fabulous! Pablo was a fantastic teacher, the chocolate was delicious and we get to taste everything. My favorite was the Mayan style hot chocolate. If you are in Antigua pass by and join the class, worth every quetzal!!
