“Fun Place”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

For many years Antigua lacked chocolate in any form, even imported ones in grocery stores. This place has solved the problem.They sell lovely chocolate: flavored and not , sweet and unsweetened. It;'s fun to see how chocolate grows and is made in their exhibit and they offer hands on chocolate making fun for groups.

We did the chocolate making class - The guy that taught us was awesome - He loved his job and was soo enthusiastic. Had a blast and ate soo much delicious chocolate. We're thinking of going back to do the truffle making class too!

“An excellent way to spend a few hours!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Went to the ChocoMuseo on recommendation of some friends who were there a few days ago. What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon! Pablo, our 'guide/teacher' had a ton of energy and just made the whole experience so much fun - as well as really informative! We got to try hot chocolate 'Mayan Style' and 'Spanish Style' and also got some hands-on experience how to make it from scratch (aka start with the fermented and dried choco beans). The chocolate is delicious too! Well worth a visit!

“Excellent place to buy chocolate”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I have not participated in any of the activites here (demonstrations, classes). I have been to ChocoMuseo to buy chocolates and have been very impressed with the service, quality and array of chocolates for purchase.

I was purchasing a birthday gift, walked in, told the very helpful employee how much I wanted to spend, and he was terrific. He helped me pick a good variety of stuff and packaged it up in a cute box. I walked out of the store less than 10 minutes later. A really good experience!

I live in Antigua and want to check out the museum - it looks interesting and tasty.

“Learn, have fun and make chocolate!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great fun for adults and children. You start by making your own chocolate that you get to take home at the end of the "tour." Our teacher had a ton of energy and had the kids completely engaged. It's a very hand-on experience and a nice break from site seeing. Chocolate is delicious.
