  • Nice and clean place. They have signs to read about chocolate making process. I had three flavors of homemade ice cream. It is more Icy than creamy. 6.50 sole for three scoops. Free chocolate samples ...  more »
  • We found these Choco Museums all over Peru, but if in Ollantaytambo there isn't much to do so you might as well stop in. They have a ton of chocolate products and it's just a nice place to hang out an...  more »
  • It is worth taking a moment and stop by this museum. There's no tour but the items exposed are self explanatory, all have billboards with the information. Has several types of tasting chocolate, cocoa and tea. The gift shop is very varied, very good for souvenirs.

  • Do not go here!!! Customer service is terrible, the staff doesn't care or seem to enjoy being there, and worst of all they don't protect your valuables while you take the class! I have pictures to prove that someone stole my $300 sunglasses while I was grinding the chocolate. After telling the staff and emailing their customer service they have done absolutely nothing to help. No discount on my class, no complimentary anything, no help with filing a police report, they didn't even look around the store. Don't go here!!! There are way better things to do in Cusco!
  • We read about the "bean to bar" class and were pretty much hooked as soon as we read about it. The class was offered 3 times per day and takes 2+ hours. Included in said class was an overview of where the beans come from, the process of fermentation that makes them legit and then an actual class during which you make the chocolate we all love! During the class, you roast, peel, crush, grind and taste chocolate throughout the process of it becoming some dreamy Valentine's Day delight! We learned that roasted beans give off banana, coffee and olive notes - cool party knowledge, check! After finishing the process of prepping the beans, you try three different drinks - chocolate tea, Mayan hot chocolate and Peruvian hot chocolate (not sure if that's the real name, but that's what we called it). Following the drinks, you get to pour your own chocolates and mix them with any fixins you like! After pouring they take an hour to set so don't make the mistake we did of having to leave right after the class. They were super accommodating however and rushed our ( in a freezer we think). A really fun and unique way to spend a few hours in Cusco. Well worth the $25 per person!
  • So much fun! Free chocolate samples and great desserts to order at the end of your free tour. A few streets off Plaza de Armas.
  • Again like the pisco "museum" it's not really a museum but you can learn a lot about how chocolate is made and get some nice samples. The cafe is also pretty good - try the fondue!
  • I visited and learned A LOT about chocolate during my trip to Cusco. It was so much fun making the chocolate, but even more fun eating the finished product. The teacher was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Recommended if you have time to spare while in Cusco.
