We were wandering and fell onto this wonderful gem and boy did the chocolate taste good. My friends loved the gifts of small chocolate they received. A couple of great stores inside + traditional Guatemala clothing were wonderful add-ons to our visit. Go and enjoy!

Wandering through the streets of Antigua and went to taste some of their chocolate. I bought my friends some - they were so good. Popular place for your coffee and chocolate fixes.

We come to Antigua every year or two and my daughter (age 11) always wants to do the chocolate making workshop -- so even though we'd done it three times before, I signed us up again! The staff who lead the workshops are exceptionally well trained. They relate the history of chocolate in an engaging manner, let us try our... More

A self guided museum and chocolate shop. We enjoyed the courtyard cafe with a make your own hot chocolate option. Very delicious chocolate but quite pricey.

We've had the chocolate there and it's good. The chocolate cooking class is very full and pretty lame. Go if you like tourist kind of things.

I learned about the beginning of chocolate with the Mayans, how to grade chocolate, transforming the cacao bean to chocolate, and making... More
