  • Awesome lunch experience. Chocolate chicken is ridiculously great. Learning how to make your own chocolate was wonderful. One of the best parts of our 2 week trip.
  • Amazing Maya owned farm to table chocolate company that makes really excellent dark chocolate in the heart of Belize's cacao growing region, the Toledo District. The only chocolate company in Belize to own its own cacao farm. Innovative Maya entrepreneurs making a difference in their home village and country. Juan and Abelina are the best. I take visitors there with my tour company all the time and everyone loves them, the chocolate making experience, the tree to bar tour activities and the really excellent dark chocolate.
