  • We did the chocolate making tour with Orlando who was very enthusiastic and fun. We learned about the history of making chocolate during the Mayan period and made Mayan hot chocolate and chocolate tea. We were able to make our own chocolates with different toppings. Good all around family activity that lasts about two hours. Need to reserve beforehand. The times are 11am, 130pm, and 4pm.
  • Pricey but very interesting! Well worth the visit and the chocolate making workshop is excellent. Take your time and enjoy this place as the history is interesting and the chocolate is delicious!
  • Lovely place! We did the 'from bean to bar ' workshop and it was very informative & entertaining. We were doubting about the price (Q180pp) but you also end up with a lot of delicious self made chocolate so definitely worth it!
  • This is a most go place when going to antigua, take some time to learn how chocolate is made and make some tests of your own.
  • Super friendly staff! My mom and I ended up taking two classes because the first was so much fun! Our instructor Patty was amazing. I would definitely recommend taking a class there. Also the hair cream was wonderful. I lost my bottle of it and I'm heartbroken because I swear it was magical. Gave me the confidence of a peacock.
