  • This place had some fantastic flavored cacao. For any chocolate lovers this is the place to go if you are in the area. I will be back here to pick up more sweets the next time I'm in Cozumel.
  • Wow! So amazing and delicious!! We LOVED being shown an organic way we can have chocolate without all the sugars and chemicals out usual store bought "chocolates" had. This excursion was definitely worth the trip! Our tour guides were so Informative and friendly. I would totally recommend this excursion for those of you deciding what to do on your port stop!
  • Wonderful visit. We especially loved the presentation of how the chocolate was made. It was informative and funny and the presenter warmed our hearts and tickled our funny bones. The cleansing ritual prior to the tour was also very interesting and unanticipated. Unique experience. Great taste!
  • Cool little tour on how chocolate is made and the history of it via Cozumel. The chocolate is really good and the Maya Coladas (chocolate pina coladas) are awesome...
  • Great tour. We got to hear about the history of the coco bean. We also learn how it is processed into power; got to sample it in power and drink form; and buy different chocolate from the gift store. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It is a must!!! do.
