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.

Go visit this museum, sheila will give the history of Cocoa and have you laughing and licking your lips from all the good tasting chocolate. You see how it is made and other products too with free samples. Very Very nice.

We visited the ChocoMuseo to get off property for a little while and were immersed in a world of chocolate. I've been to Hershey, PA many times and can tell you this is nothing like that tour. There's nothing commercial or artificial about this tour. Our tour facilitator showed us the entire manufacturing process, roasting our very own cocoa beans,... More

We visited here and didn't expect much but what a cute place! They let you taste the different chocolate and even have signs up throughout of all chocolate does for you and how they handle it from step 1. Not bad for a free tour also!

The white chocolate and cocoa tea are must tries! And if you love mamajuana as much as I do, you have to try all of the... More
