My wife, kids and I had the best time at Choco Museo. Perfect location, only a few minutes from the Central Park. We enjoyed their 60 foot pool and it's tropical setting. The menu for the pool area was very good very reasonably priced as were the tropical drinks. Flor, who manages the pool area is very friendly and accomodating.... More

To learn about the chocolate process from the tree to the making of a host of different chocolate drinks in a couple of hours is great fun. The instructor Ishmael (that is his name), the best $20 dollars spent in the city. The class is a hands on experience that has you sweaty from laughing and grinding the coco beans... More

Unless one opts to participate in the chocolate making activity there is very little too see. It was free to walk through museum. The museum consisted of a picture tour of history and making of chocolate. One can buy chocolate at the museum store. Cost was a bit expensive but chocolate was good.

This was less than 3 blocks from our Hotel and we were very anxious to see it. There was a great explanation of how cocoa is grown, 2 ways actually, and displayed the stages of the cocoa plant. Sample of the kinds of chocolate, and retail area. This doesnt take an hour and really is neat.

They offer free samples of their cocoa tea and you can buy the tea to make at home. A must try. So delicious.

Although I have been a chocoholic all my life, I learned a lot from our (rather pricey) tour. Ismael did a wonderful job of teaching us all about not only the process of making chocolate, but also its history, so bound to Central America.

Our host,Kenny, was just wonderful bringing the history of chocolate to life. It was fun mashing the cocoa beans and making the candy. We all had a good time.

We have not eten there. It is on our list. I went in and needed ground cocoa. They did not have it but told me to wait. I waited and within 15 minutes I had a pound of fresh ground cocoa. They could have just said no and that was that but they did not. They made a huge effort... More

Excellent for a snack or lunch! Amazing numbers of choices in Cocao products. Nice store ambience, lovely interior courtyard with pool for rent in back. This is a cool respite from midday Grenada heat!
