What a great thing to do in Belize! The owners and staff were very inviting and made it a personal experience. The tortilla making and lunch prep was fun and the food was delicious. It really exceeded our expectations.

This was such an excellent tour! We were able to learn about and experience the chocolate-making experience from farm to making and eating chocolate ourselves. The folks that worked here were so warm and friendly. This was so much fun for me to video and take pictures, then take them back home to share with my 4th grade students.

The Che'il Chocolate tour was a highlight on our trip to Belize. They grow some of their cacao at a farm across the road, which is the start of the tour. Then you head back to the Maya Center to make chocolate using traditional Mayan methods. We learned so much about cacao and its history in Belize. And we were amazed how delicious the pulp was!

My family had a very enjoyable time at the Chelil Chocolate Factory. We made the drive up from Placencia which only took about 25 minutes. Very easy to find off of Southern Highway. Julio was very hospitable and he spoke great English. Before leaving our hotel I called Julio to inquire about the tour and he was great to work with. This was a unique and memorable experience. We would recommend to others as a great way to experience local Mayan culture.

If you are headed through Maya Center, in Dangriga or even Hopkins, Maya Center Museum is a must stop, Julio and his family are gracious hosts who welcome all like family. They happily hosted my study abroad groups hear after year for meals, museum tours, and even chocolate demonstrations. Julio is a charismatic host and was willing to accommodate dietary needs and our travel schedules. The museum is well-put-together and includes interactive portions, perfect for student groups (including tortilla making, cacao milling, and sugar cane crushing) It has been a pleasure to keep in touch with Julio after many years and see how his business has grown.
