The concept is nice: a small museum that showcases a factory of Mayan chocolates, a degustation room and an area to buy the chocolates. A variety of 10 chocolates are offered for tasting; all of the highest quality and with very interesting combination of flavors: tequila, Xtabentum, ginger, cinnamon, pepper, anise, chili, vanilla, ... and the "secret Mayan recipe". The... More

Small intimate shop with chocolate workshop and tour. Ricardo and Sadee were delightful guides who are very articulate in English. We tasted each flavor and purchased 14 boxes as gifts and yummy souvenirs. This side trip on charming quiet street is worth departing the highway. We hope to return.

We stopped for a chocolate factory tour as part of the Mexico Kan world Wonder Discovery Tour. I'm so glad they were open! The place is small. The staff were very nice and the lady who gave us the tour was great. We got to watch one of the ladies rolling the chocolate balls. Then we got to try every... More

We came there without any money, had a huge laundry bag with us but that was no problem at all. The lovely lady from the shop showed us a place to put our bag and gave us a private tour. She was so enthusiastic and lovely. And the chocolate is SO tasty and special. You don't even have to pay... More

What a wonderful little shop. We enjoyed a nice and short tour with a very nice guide. She walked us through the history and the process of how their cocoa is made. At then end you get to sample all they have to offer. I am not a huge chocolate fan but I must admit their chocolate is beyond amazing.... More

Nice tour along with some history of chocolate itself and how they manufacture it. There is sample tasting at the end with many different blended favors. We bought several packs and really enjoyed them.

I'm glad to see people who enjoy their job. We had a nice experience in this brief tour, our host was very friendly and kind, despite the heat and our curious 1 year old, the chocolate tasting was delicious.

A nice short tour about the origin of chocolate that leads to a delicious chocolate tasting! I loved the chocolates very much and bought a few packs to take home, but I think my vanilla chocolate bag is mistakenly filled with ginger chocolates! Nice Mayan experience anyways!

The ladies who run this lovely little museum/chocolate factory and shop are charming and knowledgable about that delightful distraction and addiction -chocolate! After hearing all about the high end health benefits and sampling the delicious morsels you will be traveling home with more than one box! Highly recommend Cacoa.

The tour itself is very short. The people are very friendly. The town is very sweet and quaint and at a short distance from Chichen-Itza. So we stayed over in Valladolid and visited the cacao. Bought a few of these chocolate balls. The choices and varieties are awesome. There are also personal products made out of cacao butter.
