Incredibly good chocolate made by Dina, the owner, in her own kitchen. Expensive by Latin American standards but well worth it. She also makes wonderful,fragrant soaps.

Stopped in on a rainy day in June and had a good conversation with the owner and bought some various chocolates. Had great service. Just ate one of my last Mayan chili chocolates tonight. It was great. The orange was full of flavor as well. I wish I lived closer. Had to send a message to a friend there tonight... More

A vast array of various flavors and kinds of chocolate. Got some to take home for gifts; ate some and share with our group, so had to go back for more! You wouldn't expect to find this type of chocolate shop in this town!

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
