Tucked away on a corner of Friars street about halfway between main square and convent. You get a no frills tour of the steps involved in preparing cocoa pods for eating and drinking. In addition, they offer a sample of a half dozen or so different flavored chocolates. Naturally they are available for sale in larger quantities. We had a... More

The gals were friendly and helpful. It made our day to stop here! We bought several boxes for our family and friends back home. Thanks for a great... More

We made a quick stop here and were offered a short tour. There was no chocolate making happening while we were there but the variety of chocolate available for purchase made up for it. The tequila flavour is fantastic!

The tour/history presentation was informative. It was real hot inside due to the AC not working. The demonstration was not going on when we went because they were in another location. They did have several samples to taste after. All the flavors were very good. The chocolate or Cacao was closer to a powdery texture, no fats, so no waxy/creamy... More

We were delighted at the amount of history associated with cacao and happily surprised at the end of the tour with a tasting of about 15 chocolates! Very wonderful addition to our amazing trip to the Yucatan!

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...
