We did the Bean to Bar workshop with Ishmael. It was fantastic! We started out with roasting the beans, grinding them into a paste and then turning them into hot cocoa. We also got to make our own chocolate bar. I added peanut butter and cinnamon. It was very tasty. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. Ishmael was knowledgable and... More

I traveled to Nicaragua with a group of 5 and we loved the chocolate making class. You learn how to make chocolate and go on a little tour with the young man who is great at his job. He gets everyone super excited and involved and it made for a really fun afternoon. You get the fresh beans and learn... More

We stayed in the hotel/mansion for 3 nights and enjoyed the museum every day. The history boards on the walls are really interesting. The smells are amazing. We had our 3 kids participate in the chocolate workshop and they had a blast. The staff was great with children. They roasted and hand ground the beans. Then made 2 different chocolate... More

It's more like a dusty shop that has a 10 minute history of chocolate "tour" - and because of the lack of quality in their products, it's hard to understand the attraction.

Thank you for visiting my "odd place"; it is unfortunate that you missed the parts about the cultivation and processing of cacao, the fabrication of chocolate, and our mini cacao plantation where visitors can actually see cacao trees and cacao pods growing on the trees. Fortunately for us, as TripAdvisor readers will note, your views are rather atypical. Have a... More

This sounded very artificial and touristy to me at first, but it was so bloody hot while we were sightseeing, we needed to find a place to cool off. We signed our kids (ages 5 and 6) up for the chocolate making tour and they thoroughly enjoyed it. They basically learned how chocolate goes from being a cacao bean to... More

My 82 year old mother was visiting me and we decided to take the tour as she had never seen a cocoa except in a Hershey's tin. My son, (7 years old) and his friend went with us for the tour. From the onset, everyone was incredibly nice and accommodating (my mother has a bit of trouble standing for long... More

Attended a chocolate workshop. Ismael was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We roasted beans and ground them into a paste. Made 3 different drinks and a bar of chocolate. Well worth doing

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
