  • My husband and I visited this museum after being at Uxmal (the Museum is located across the street from the entrance to the aforementioned archaeological site). It is a path inside an old cocoa plantation with several "pit stops". Following the path, in fact, you will encounter different palapa posing different themes: the seed of the cocoa and its use, processing, plantation, exporting to Europe ... etc. In particular, during the journey you can attend a ceremony dedicated to cocoa. In one of Palapas you can taste the "drink of the gods", with sugar or, as tradition dictates, with chili. It is a nice experience! Along the way you can also see some animals (monkeys, Jaguars, deer) subtracted in circuses or in situation of violence and malnutrition: these animals, accustomed to captivity, would not be able to survive in the wild.
