Dina's Chocolates is a lovely little chocolate and coffee shop on a busy street corner in Panajachel. Their chocolate is sweetened with honey. The owners are friendly and helpful. This is a great place to get gifts to take home for friends and family.

The chocolate here is fantastic! The owners are so welcoming as well. Make sure to try the chocolate with chili pepper. So delicious!

It is a bit pricy for the area, and they were RARELY open! They offer some unique gift ideas, like chocolate soap.

Fabulous chocolate - dark chocolate was 70% cacao, sweetened with honey. We stopped here every night after dinner to get a bite of chocolate. Only thing missing was some great red wine to go with it.

We sampled a lot of chocolate here, but my favorite was un Poca de Todo. It was milk chocolate with coconut, raisins, and a few other things that I can't recall but it was yummy! Home made chocolates with bars less than a $1.00 each.

Dina’s chocolate shop was recommended by a local tour guide. We made our way up the street not far from the main shopping area. Owned by a local family they have a wide selection of hand made chocolate bars. I was in a hurry so I just bought an assortment to taste later. That was a mistake because I wanted... More

I know it is homemade, but living on a budget here, it is not some where I can frequent. I got a piece which was great but won't be going back. I have found other... More

If you are in Panajachel, you must visit Dina's Chocolates. It is easy to spot - it at the main intersection on the main street. Have chocolate con agua/with water instead of milk. The best hot chocolate I have ever had.
