We had a marvelous time--do not miss! This is a must for kids and adults alike. The 2-hour experience was very hands-on. We learned so much about chocolate and got to make our own candies to take home. This was a highlight of our trip.

This is NOT a factory tour! This gift-shop offers a 2-hour "workshop" experience (their words, and it's an accurate term). For Q180 per person, you get a oral history of the cocoa production in Central America and a description of the chocolate making process. Nice visual aids are in the store (but you can read them yourself while shopping --... More

Took the two hour workshop for making chocolate starting with cocoa beans. Our guide Edwin was both knowledgeable and entertaining and the workshop was well-structured. Had a good time and the quality of the chocolate they sell, although rather expensive, is of first quality. I would recommend the workshop.

The ChocoMuseo also has a restaurant at its location on the main tourist street with the Arch and Clock. Chocolate is good, though better in Santo Domingo's Choclatarti Shop.

This trip we only stopped in to one of the two Choco Museo places in Antigua for lunch. The Maya hot chocolate was absolutely divine, with hot milk, chocolate, and chili powder served separately for you to blend. Pannini sandwiches were quite tasty. Three years ago I took a 2.5 hour chocolate making course here and it was great fun!... More

After the tour you attend a workshop in how to make chocolate and chocolate drinks. You make your own chocolate candy that you can bring home. The guide was very professional and knowledgeable. This is... More

We took the tour to Adolfo's farm out past Chicacao and were exceedingly delighted. Our guide Edwin was pleasant and knowledgeable of both English and the subject--cacao. Adolfo showed us around his farm, described each fruit and Edwin translated. He let us taste many wonderful fresh fruits--including the pulp inside the cacao pod. Delicious! He also prepared drinks and tea... More

Very well kept up business in Antigua. It's billed as a museum but it's really more about selling chocolate products. We managed to talk with a manager there who spent time telling us the history of how chocolate was started in Guatemala and there were a few displays and placards detailing some more information about growing chocolate. Reasonably priced, good... More
