OK, so I am not big on tours, but my partner wanted to learn about organic chocolate cultivation - and we had a lovely day. Just us and our guide; we travelled to an estate by boat and horseback, learned all about organic farming and beekeeping and had the most wonderful swim in a reservoir fed by volcanic springs. And...

Stopped in to take a peek for something to do. The guy that met us at the dor had some interesting information about the origins of chocolate in the area and offered us several samples. The "museum" is just a series of posters and displays but was cool to check out. Have the cold cacao drink while you're there -... More

My boyfriend and I took part in the chocolate workshop today. There were meant to be three others booked on but as they didn't show up, it was just the two of us. We were looked after by Ismail who was really good and knowledgeable. My Spanish isn't very good so he did the class in English. He is practically... More

First of all , the chocolate museum is free to go to , but the class is what you can pay for . You are able to get a $2 off coupon that makes the class $17. My husband and I have been backpacking through Central American for the last two months . We have done everything from climbing volcanos... More

It costs $19 for adults and $11 for children for a 1.5-2 hour "tour" where you get to learn about how they make chocolate. You get to roast cocao beans over a fire, make 2 chocolate drinks and finally get to make a chocolate bar (which you have to come back for after 1-2 hours to let it set). Kenny... More

This is a very touristy place to stop. The prices are very high for Granada and there is little you can barter on. While the overall concept is fun and the chocolate is great I dont know it warrants the cost.

Glad you found ChocoMuseo "worth a visit". If by "touristy" you mean that ChocoMuseo is a popular destination for tourists in Granada, you are correct. We believe our prices indeed are reasonable for Granada, and we strive to offer a quality product at a reasonable price, and pay our people fair wages and our suppliers fair prices. Clearly if a...

The information about the history and production of cocoa and chocolate is presented in an interesting and efficient way. You can take a class to learn how to make chocolate, which I enjoyed very much. The personnel is very professional and kind.

We spent a day walking around Granada taking in all the sights and were happy that we made a stop here. It's not a huge museum but there's an area where you can have your own chocolate mixed, a coffee bar, gift shop and small museum area explaining the history of chocolate. We enjoyed learning about the history of chocolate... More
