We went into make an appointment. They were not busy so they gave us the lesson immediately. The employees were professional, attentive, helpful and friendly. Ismael was an enthusiastic, informative, personable teacher. He seemed to enjoy the class as much as I did. He keeps you engaged the entire class. I loved making and trying the ancient drinks. I learned... More

Fun to stop in and look around and try the chocolate tea. The workshop looks like great fun and would have done it if we had more time. Worth a look and it's free.

We took the two hour chocolate class at the Chocomuseo. It was really excellent - we roasted pre-dried and fermented cacao beans, de-hulled them and mashed them to a paste with a mortar and pestle then made authentic chocolate drinks from the Mayans and Aztecs (pre-conquistadors) plus a Spanish version from the 1600s with milk. the. We made our own... More

I was unable to take the class due to time constraints, however I was able to sample a few of the items. And let me say that the tea, cookies and chocolate are fantastic. However, I bought a few bars to take home and share with family and friends. But imagine my embarrassment as I told people how great this... More

A little pricey at 6 USD but it's an all you can eat buffet. Omelettes, chocolate crepes, fruit, yogurt and granola, etc. The chocolate tea is very sweet, but mixed with 2 parts coffee makes an excellent dessert.

The museum was okay, but the breakfast was amazing. All you can eat for about $7 with made to order crepes, omelettes, and french toast. The chocolate tea is reason enough to stop by.

My girlfriend and I took the chocolate making class and we have to say that it was great! Our teacher Ismael was very good at teaching us the background behind chocolate making and the history of chocolate. Coming from someone who has worked in the tour industry Ismael did a great job. His English was great, which helps because our... More

Beware; this ain't actually a museum, but a lovely cafe with deadly variations of chocolate. I had a chocolate fondue -with melted bitter chocolate and tropical fruit- and it was so incredibly delicious that literally got high-headed afterwards. Chocolate is handmade with traditional methods, and that makes the difference. Highly recommend for chocolate lovers.
