Don't bring your wife

Don't bring your wife! My wife spent $74US on chocolate. In fairness it's delicious but maybe not $74 delicious. Great to hear about the history of chocolate.

The hostess was very friendly and spoke great English, she was very informative and gave a great tour and history of Mayan cacao. We enjoyed sampling the different types of cacao and left with 6 boxes of cacao to take back home! The tour was unexpected, but free and a real highlight of the day.

I was wandering around Valladolid on the afternoon of November 15th and stumbled upon this small chocolate museum located along the charming and quiet diagonal street known as Calzada de los Frailes on the way towards the Convent de San Bernardino de Siena. I stepped inside and was greeted by a very friendly and welcoming woman. There was already a... More

Get a quick overview of the history of chocolate, and then buy some of the best hand made cacao you'll ever taste!

Came here just before dinner and were given a great, quick tour through the histroy of chocolate and chocolate making in the Yucatan. Absolutely gorgeous chocolates on offer. The tour is free "as are the best things in life" but we absolutely had to bring some chocolate home with us afterwards.

Located next to the city center in the Calzada de los Frailes, on the way to the Convento San Bernardino, this small albeit interesting museum is about the cacao and chocolate history. There are just two rooms with pics and artifacts which illustrate the cacao process to be turned into chocolate and a room where locals are pressing chocolate balls... More

It is close to the town center. You get some introduction about the cacao to chocolate process in a small room with pics and artifacts before to move inside another room where you can see local ladies shaping small chocolate balls with their hands. You can take a couple of pics but there is not much more to do. When... More

We stopped in as we had 20 mins to kill before getting on ado bus out of town. The guide spoke 3 different languages on our tour which takes about 10 mins. The place is on a quiet street away from the hustle of town. Just visiting the street for a couple of photos was worth it. This tour is... More

We went here without a tour. We managed to get some information from the host who spoke little English (along with our little Spanish). We saw how the chocolate was hand made and bought a few boxes as gift for friends at home. Worth the visit.
