The chocolate cooking class was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. Our teacher Kenny spoke great English, was super entertaining and very knowledgable on the chocolate making process. It was a very hands on and entertaining class from start to finish. We roasted, shelled, and grinded cacao beans. From this we created 2 cacao drinks and a chocolate bar. Would definitely... More

My friend was dying to do the two hour chocolate making class while we were here, so we did it. I found it to be a bit expensive at $25, but I am not a chocolate fan. We did learn a lot about the chocolate making process, and got to make our own drinks and bar of chocolate. Although they... More

We had Kenye as our instructor and he was awesome! he has so much energy and is a lot of fun. He teaches you about the cocoa plant and the chocolate making process. this was super fun if you have time I would recommend. making your own hot chocolate and chocolate bar was so much fun

We came here all the time for the pinolillo-- get it with milk! It's a classic Nicaraguan drink that's weirdly hard to find in stores. Also, loved the class-- Kenny was so great, super fun, super informative. While it's a bit pricey, I actually found it to be worth it. Go spy on some other people doing the class first... More

Our 10 years old girl loved it there. Great experience for all of us and she learned how to prepare chocolate and the history of chocolate. Kenny was great and we all had a great time.

Interesting store and information but not really a museum. But it is worth a stop if you have time. It is also a cafe and hotel.

I´m glad you found ChocoMuseo interesting, but sorry you rated us as "poor". You say we are not really a museum, but what really constitutes a museum? ChocoMuseo has exhibits explaining the history of cacao and chocolate, the cultivation of cacao, and the fabrication of chocolate, and an artisanal production facility on site in which we make our own chocolate...

My friends and I took the class on how to make chocolate at the Choco Museo. The class goes through the history of chocolate as well as takes you through the entire chocolate making process from roasting the cacao seeds, to making your own chocolate drinks and bar. They even have a mini-cacao plantation so you can see what a... More

Loved this whole experience! We learned a ton about chocolate--history, roasting, how to make drinking and eating chocolate, recipes for various things--it was amazing. We took the $21 per person class, Ismael (sp?) was our teacher, and it was amazing. Man, that guy has energy. Super sense of humor and lots of love for chocolate. We had both couples and... More
