we really enjoyed looking at the history of chocolate information on the walls and the free tastings, even seeing the cocoa trees. However, we were sort of annoyed by the woman at the back insisting we try the spa ( although we told her we were not interested) and we all bought a piece of choclate for oursleves. However, once...

This place is trying very hard to be successful, but they need a focus and better chocolate. They offer a 2 hour chocolate making experience that includes a brief education about the bean to candy process. It would be much better to reserve certain classes for kids and others for adults, because it just isn't possible to engage 8 year... More

It was very interesting and the tour guide was funny and entertaining. I thought the price was excessive for what you get but nonetheless a fun and memorable experience.

Thank you for your comments. Our instructor does try to engage children in the workshops and certainly recognizes that their interests and abilities are different from adults We do offer workshops exclusively for children from Nicaraguan schools, but the economics do not permit us to offer workshops exclusively for children traveling in Nicaragua, as there just is not a critical...

Let´s start with the good side: the location is really nice and the service is also good. When you then come to pay you suddenly discover that the prices are not inclusive for taxes (15%) and tip (10%); even worse, if you pay in dollars they automatically round up applying an unknown rate and forgetting to give you the right...

Yes, you are correct, ChocoMuseo is far from the "real Nicaragua", the second poorest country in the western hemisphere after Haiti. We do not claim in any way to represent the poverty in Nicaragua, but we are located in a beautifully restored colonial ear mansion, dating from 1865, so in what sense that is not "real" baffles me. At ChocoMuseo... More

I led a large group of students on a program and we participated in the chocolate making class. It was a fun activity and the people running the program did a great job.

My 3 year old particularly enjoyed the chocolate making class with Ismael. He will still recite the little 'bate, bate' chant. Despite having poured a ton of sprinkles into his 'artisanal' chocolate bar, he seemed to enjoy the taste a lot. It's pricey considering the fee for 2 adults and one child but we all had a lot of fun.... More

We were really looking forward to the chocolate workshop as i have always been interested in the process and of course making my own chocolate! Though it was really good fun and the teacher is very enthusiastic, the class was not as interactive as we would have liked as we ended up just watching the teacher do most of the... More

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Things to do in Granada - the chocolate museum, on the website I found they had chocolate workshops and tours - I'm a chocolate fanatic and this was an opportunity I would not miss. We signed up for a workshop in the morning and were the only 2 in it. Our guide spoke excellent English and had a... More
