The tour is very short but informative. I loved that my kids got the insight into the local culture. At the end you will have a little tasting of the many different kinds of chocolate they make. You will not be able to resist buying something in their store. Also, don't leave without ordering something in their little cafe. The... More

Needed shelter from the rain and saw the words Cocoa so we dived into the shop not knowing what to expect. The café portion was closed but we got a great little talk about Cocoa in the region and sampling of some very interesting flavors after which we bought a couple of boxes consisting of hand-formed balls (The size of...

This is a great little stop on your walks around Valladolid. My boys (4 and 7) really liked learning about the chocolate making process and trying the little samples at the end. The staff was very friendly, spoke to us in English, but also indulged us as we practiced our Spanish. We returned the next day to try the cacao... More

I did not get to see the chocolate-making process during my short time in Valladolid, but I was still able to enjoy a chocolate tasting and a short tour of the facility (it's really small). The guide spoke some English, which with my limited Spanish was a relief. The chocolate is delicious, and be sure to try the hot cacao... More

My 16 year old daughter and I visited this place and loved it. We drank traditional chocolate from a gourd and bought two boxes of chocolate to take home as gifts. We appreciated the excellent prices and free mini tour.

The tour was fun and the chocolate was even better! Yes, it is pricier than you'd expect, but its handmade and ridiculously good! We brought back quite a few bars and boxes as gifts that people went crazy for. TRY THE OREGANO CHOCOLATE OMG MY LIFE IS CHANGED

Don't bring your wife! My wife spent $74US on chocolate. In fairness it's delicious but maybe not $74 delicious. Great to hear about the history of chocolate.

The hostess was very friendly and spoke great English, she was very informative and gave a great tour and history of Mayan cacao. We enjoyed sampling the different types of cacao and left with 6 boxes of cacao to take back home! The tour was unexpected, but free and a real highlight of the day.

I was wandering around Valladolid on the afternoon of November 15th and stumbled upon this small chocolate museum located along the charming and quiet diagonal street known as Calzada de los Frailes on the way towards the Convent de San Bernardino de Siena. I stepped inside and was greeted by a very friendly and welcoming woman. There was already a... More

Worth a quick stop for a short (5min) tour of cacao and its history and importance to the maya. The have some very unique flavours in the free tasting afterwards with a chance to purchase. Yum!
