Choco Museo is a wonderful place to go whether just for a snack or for a full on cooking class (HIGHLY RECOMMEND)!

The 2 hour chocolate making class is well worth it for anyone interested in chocolate. They give you the history about cacao and show you how to get from bean to bar. This is a hands on class: you get to make chocolate paste, chocolate tea, hot chocolate and your own chocolates! It's super fun, suitable for all ages and... More

Entertaining in-depth history of chocolate and introduction to start to finish production of chocolate! Sample variety of types of chocolate, make your own to take home, and drink various types of chocolate! A great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon!

Our lesson was incredible and SUCH a good value! Our instructor, Edwin, spoke wonderful English, and the small group setting allowed us to chat throughout the lesson and get all our questions answered.

The first thing one notices is the smell of chocolate, and then you see all the wonderful confections in the shop. Patricia was our guide for the history of chocolate and then we made our own chocolates! She is a ball of energy and obviously loves her job. She made Mayan hot chocolate, then we tried Aztec hot chocolate, and... More

Taste some dark and milk chocolate and see how chocolate is made from a pod to the final product. There's a short video as well as a room full of information about the history of chocolate. It's all free.
