The ancient Mayan city of Uxmal has a pyramid, a palace, other preserved buildings, and the Choco Story. This museum tells the history of cocoa and its importance to the Mayan. The Museum grounds has paths through the vegetation, past an array of parakeets, another of spider monkeys. There is an opening where they somedays do a reenactment of a Mayan cleaning. And they have a gift shop, you can buy chocolate, and relics of everything else you thought you saw.

Another hidden gem in Yucatan. Very clean grounds. Friendly and helpful staff. The ceremony and chocolate preparation demonstration was very interesting. We spent over two hours walking around and enjoying the ambiance. Pairs well with a visit to Uxmal ruins. They are side by side.

Spent 1.5 hours here - very interesting and original with great price/quality ratio. Beautiful animals which were all rescued. Informative stalls (texts in English and Spanish). Worth a visit when you're visiting the ruins!

There is a small fee to get in but it is worth the price. Displays and videos of the history of cocoa plantings in Mexico and the making of chocolate are located in huts. We were surprised to attend a Mayan rain ceremony as well as a liquid chocolate tasing which was yummy. The grounds are nicely vegetated with tropical plants and there is a bird aviary as well as a small zoo with monkeys and panthers. Before you exit there is a shop with delicious chocolate to buy.

I enjoyed it. Think it was well worth the cheap entrance fee (140 pesos). I am sure that kids under 12 like this place better than the ruins across the street. Animals look healthy, nice exhibits, written in spanish and english. The hot chocolate demonstration was spoken in 3 languages, he adapted to whomever was in the audience.

Right opposite Uxmal ruins entrance. Nice Mayan cacao ceremony. Kids enjoyed feeding animals such as monkey and deer. Nice Choco story and sampling after demo.

We went to this museum because someone we met had been and the family loved it. We were staying at the Lodge at Uxmal and since it's right across the street, we decided to go. What a pleasant surprise! The grounds are lovely, and we saw a Mayan rain ritual. The tour included a demonstration of how to make chocolate like the Mayans did and you got to taste it and add sugar, cinnamon, etc. The history of chocolate was really interesting.

We added a tour to the Choco Museum on a whim and it was well worth it! The grounds are very well-kept and the information well organized and clear. Particularly enjoyed the interactive experiences - the ceremony and the hot chocolate!

Monkeys, deer that have been rescued. The biggest bird of paradise plants I've ever seen 10 ft high spectacular. Again take a guide or get one there so you get full benefit. Taste the hot chocolate, try the samples & then get some girls home. Learn how it's harvested, made into its various forms & enjoy. Do the Mayan ceremony & be blessed by the shaman ..this is a once in a lifetime opportunity
