    Very small chocolate Museum that explains especially its manufacturing. Diverse activity as it makes you also taste tea and other pleasures. Courtyard quiet to sit and enjoy

    I took the short class. It takes about 45 minutes and costs around 120Q (I think). You get a 10% discount on chocolate you buy from the store afterwards too -- what a perk! The class is great. You sta...  more »

    Few realize that not only the product, but also our word for chocolate actually has Mayan origins: "CHOCOLATL". What better place to learn all about the history of this nectar of the gods; go through ...  more »

    The class was very interesting with loads of info, but the chocolate itself did not have very complex flavors..

    There are two Choco Museos in Antigua, one to the east of the Central Park and one to the north of the Central Park as you head towards Santa Catalina's arch. Dual locations made it impossible to walk around Antigua without popping-in for samples at least once per day. While we didn't do any of the tours/workshops, it was fun to watch the employees creating chocolate delicacies at the front of the shop. Both locations were unfortunately out of stock of the chocolate peanut butter spread we came for, yet we still managed to walk away with various chocolate goodies, including hot chocolate, chocolate bars (including a peanut butter kind), and chocolate soap. We highly recommend stoping in for the free smells and samples or to purchase some chocolate souvenirs. There is also a cafe located in the courtyard of the shop, perfect for a Maya chocolate! ~Theresa Atkins, Central America Vacation

    The actual chocolate musuem where they make it is a few blocks away. But here you can sample a vast variety of raw chocolate products like tea, liquor and truffles! Staff are really welcoming and friendly who will talk you through it all - English available. There are also plantation tours available and a workshop 3 times a day to make your own chocolate! The smell will entise you in... worth a visit!

    Fun class if you have a couple hours. You will learn how chocolate is made, from bean to your mouth, then make some molded candies!

    We stumbled upon this chocolate museum by accident and spent 45 minutes there getting an explanation of the chocolate products and sampling to our hearts' content.
