This was very fun and informative. We visited with our 5 year old daughter. The chocolate chefs took us through the steps of chocolate processing. Our guide/chef (Ishmael) really engaged our daughter in the process. We got to try a variety of chocolate drinks that we made and then got to customize a chocolate bar to take home. My daughter...

We agree with some previous reviewers that just a few poster boards telling the history of cacao and chocolate don’t qualify to be a museum. When we asked the cashier if there's anything else to see, she said no. So after walking around for 10 minutes in a premise that looked more like a café or a souvenir shop, we... More

I agree with you - "ust a few poster boards telling the history of cacao and chocolate don’t qualify to be a museum". That´s why ChocoMuseo in addition to having displays (not just "poster boards" about the history of cacao and chocolate) also has sections devoted to the cultivation of cacao, and the fabrication of chocolate, and a minii cacao...

We had a great time and learned a lot! Class participants ranged from our small family with 10 year old to 20 something couple to 30 something woman. Everyone had a great time. Ismael, class leader, was fun, funny and informative. So glad we didn't miss it! Too bad we already had breakfast, because the class price included a small... More

Rowdy guys chasing skirts making homophobic comments when they get comfortable with you, however once they start with the how to make chocolate workshop it turns interesting.

Since both the manager as well as one of the staff members of ChocoMuseo are gay, I find your comments truly baffling. As the owner, I have never seen any evidence of homophobia, nor would I tolerate it. More

Really enjoyable hour learning how to make chocolate (roasting beans, peeling and grinding, making three different drinks - Mayan, Aztec and Western - and making chocolate bars). The instructor made the class a lot of fun for both kids and adults. A week later, my kids are still quoting some of his better lines.

I took my 3 kids to the chocolate tour/cooking course last weekend. The host - Kenny - was funny, entertaining and educational at the same time. My kids (and I) thoroughly enjoyed the session which went into overtime but he did not seemed too worried about kicking us out until all the chocolate was tasted and our own creations made... More

Spend most of a day here. First we filled up with the all-you-can-eat brunch (chocolate/banana pancakes!), chatted to other travelers, and spent the rest of the day by the pool. Bought two bags of raw chocolate for smoothies when we get home.

We visited this place and it was interesting to read the information about the chocolat production. They sell different kind of product made with chocolat and you can take an activity of making your own chocolat. Two girls were doing that and they were having fun with the cook. Would have like to taste some samples but nothing was offer.
