This museum is remotely located on Ruta Puuc and is worth a visit if you are already in the area. It's close to several Mayan sites that can be combined in one trip. The museum covers the cultivation, history and uses of cacao by Mayan and western cultures. Exhibits are arranged in huts with paths and lush vegetation in between. Don't miss the demonstration hut where you will get a chance to see how chocolate drink is prepared in traditional Mayan style from cacao beans and sample hot chocolate. Museum grounds are well maintained with numerous labeled plants throughout and several animal enclosures. They also have a gift store with cacao and chocolate items and small restaurant with children playground.
