“Interesting Little Museum and Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

The self-guided tour is interesting and the shop is cool, but make sure to check out the awesome furniture and art in the lovely courtyard out back.

“Best Breakfast Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

A believer in big breakfasts whether or not you feel like it, I was stunned to find an all-you-can-eat spot for that meal. I had an omelet with everything--and then I had chocolate crepe with pina and banana--OMG! Not to mention the chocolate tea--that was a delicious first! I've never been happier right after breakfast. I'm coming back!

“Information on Chocolate but terrible chocolate”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Good information on the process of producing chocolate from beginning to end. The chocolate was way overpriced and the quality was terrible.

The chocolate was grainy, dry and just plain terrible. Don't bother to buy the chocolate bars unless you just want novelty of making it yourself.

We make our own chocolate on site from excellent Nicaraguan organic cacao, some of the finest in the world, and mix it only with sugar in a 50/50 cacao to sugar ratio or a 70/30 cacao to sugar ratio. Admittedly it is not for palates accustomed to mass market chocolate candy bars. As to our chocolate being overpriced, comparable chocolate sells in the US for $7 to $11 oer bar, whereas our price is $3.75 per bar. But, unfortunately, we cannot please everybody, and obviously we did not please you.

“Not that interesting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

This could definately be improved upon. Sorry to say we were hoping for quite a bit more information ...I mean coco is a curative too so that could have been an additional area of information.

Sorry you did not find ChocoMuseo that interesting - we cover the history of cacao, the growing and processing of cacao, and the making of chocolate. Contrary to your assertion, we do include information about the health benefits of cacao in our exhibits, so somehow you missed that part. Perhaps if you had taken our two hour class on cacao and chocolate you would have found your experience more rewarding.
