    Great Experience!
    This is a local chocolatier that not only provides great chocolate products but offers a 60 minute class. The class focuses on how beans are acquired, roasted and then processed to obtain the chocolate used in producing their products. Chris is a great instructor. The class allows you to taste product during the process. His delivery is well paced and he encourages questions and interaction. Jo is certified by the Escolar de Chocolate (Amaury Guichon). The treats in the case are reasonably priced and taste amazing! Register before hand to make sure you get a seat.

    Perfect souvenirs
    This is a cute little shop and a great place to buy gifts to bring back home. Everyone loves chocolate! The bars are buy 3 get 1 free and there are many varieties, including vegan coconut milk chocolate. They also have body products, beautiful truffles and baked goods. We stopped on our way to the airport (they open at 8:30) and they were a little slow getting opened, but I'm not always at my desk exactly on time either!

    Learn about the history of chocolate!
    Enjoyable 1 hour "experience" with the owner who explains how chocolate is made from the growing and processing of the cacao beans to the chocolate bars we enjoy, as you sample each step. Nice family experience and break from diving adventures all week. Location is nearby lots of great restaurants as well!

    Worth Every Penny
    For any chocolate lovers, this is a must visit location while on the island. Once you try the delicious chocolates, good luck not wanting to come back a second time around. Ensure you immediately head to your hotel with whatever chocolates you do buy as you have a 20 - 30 minute window max before they melt significantly enough to impact the ultimate taste of it. We summarily returned to the hotel and put it in the fridge/cooler within the room. Parking available outside for golf carts and they take credit cards beyond 20 BZ$.

    Too expensive online
    Fantastic class and great learning experience. Do not purchase online. Was annoyed to arrive and see sign out front that said $25 BZ when I paid $50USD before arrival online. Would be okay if you are offered a credit on merchandise but that wasn't the case. Definitely a must do but pay when you get here.

    Best souvenirs ever and darn good with a view.
    This is a great little shop for some fun, souvenirs. Cocoa powder, cocoa soaps, chocolate tea. But they're true superpower is there chocolates they have so many fun flavors. My favorite was the chocolate and coffee combination followed by the peanut butter chocolate. Note this is not a Reesie's peanut butter cup. In fact, it taste totally different. Great gift to bring home to everybody Also enjoyed their chocolate milkshake, which is more like frozen hot chocolate. Surprisingly good.

    Excellent chocolates
    Given it was too hot to buy and take the chocolate (although with a cool bag, which they also sold, you could) we bought 5 individual chocolates to eat there. Flavours were lime, passion fruit, banana, coffee and chilli. They were excellent! Just a hint of the flavours, not cloyingly over sweet, well worth the stop. If you like quality chocolate as opposed to the mass produced stuff do go in and try

Amazing chocolate, completely grown and produced in Belize. May be pricier, but well worth the cost.

We are staying in San Pedro this week, and I kid you not, we’ve come here every single day! Super yummy treats and lovely staff. It’s right on the beach with a gorgeous little view.

Really great chocolate, very tasty milkshakes and friendly staff. Prices were reasonable and the back patio had a very nice view of the water.

Do yourself a favor and get some chocolate chip cookies! We bought a box of chocolates, chocolate chip cookies and a milkshake. We loved the cookies so much that we went to the chocolate co. On another island to get more of their cookies before we left the country

We take our chocolate seriously, and the bar chocolate and chocolate confections are both delicious! We also picked up a peace, love and chocolate t shirt which I thought was very clever. The bars come from cacao grown in southern Belize and are batch and date labeled. Their coffee and chocolate drinks were also refreshing, and we enjoyed resting in their air conditioned seating area that also had good Wi-Fi.
