Very interesting to discover the history of Coca in this quaint little museum. Most displays are in English and there is a little Shop with lots of Coca products. Worth the 10 sol entry.

Got a free perk from our tour operator to participate in the chocolate workshop. Expected the worst but was pleasantly surprised- it was a real blast! Our leader (Gill?) was an hilarious stand-up comedian. Go for it if you can afford the time.

It was great fun to make your own chocolate and hot chocolate by peeling, roasting and grinding. It’s good value for money as you also get to take away what you’ve made.
