Overview
More
More than a museum, ChocoMuseo is also an artisanal chocolate factory where we make our own chocolate from the beans to the bars with selected Dominican organic cacao. The visit of the chocolate factory and museum is totally free and we offer a free tour to teach you about the history of cacao and chocolate, the cacao tree in the nature and how cacao is transformed into chocolate. It is also a place where our visitors can participate into chocolate workshops where they have the possibility to elaborate their own chocolate from the cacao beans. You can choose the type of the workshop to participate. The workshop "FROM COCOA BEAN TO CHOCOLATE BAR" lasts 2 hours. Participant will find how to prepare handmade chocolate and learn all the steps from the harvest of the cacao in a plantation to the obtention of a chocolate bar. From the cacao beans you will roast them, peel them, and grind them into a paste. This cacao paste is used to prepare the first known cacao drink (invented by the Mayas), the traditional chocolate. In the end, from refined chocolate you will prepare your own chocolate bonbons with topping on your taste that you can take back home. Mini-workshop "UNIQUE CHOCOLATE BONBONS", 35 minutes. During this mini-workshop you will prepare the set of super chocolate bonbons using white, black and milk chocolate. Different molds and different toppings will help to create a set of unique handmade organic chocolate bonbons. Book the time of your workshop by phone or via our web-site.

We came in with the Fun Buggy tour as a last stop on a long hot day. ICE COLD BEER. Free rum tasting. Clean bathrooms. Amazing new bar addition. And the choco museum was actually pretty cool. No purchase pressure. Great place to stop.

This place was great. Clean and inviting and they offered samples of the tea and the homemade chocolate. The entire Mundo Autentico was a great place to grab some well priced souvenirs and gifts.
