Such good value for money, 180 QTZ for 2 hours and an end product. We learnt to make chocolate from scratch from how to harvest the beans, fermentation, drying, roasting, winnowing, grinding, pressing, refining and then crafting your own flavoured chocolates. We also made 3 hot chocolate drinks (Mayan, spanish and cacao tea). Orlando was very informative, friendly and funny.... More

If you have an afternoon free while exploring Antigua, you could do far worse than paying a visit to this store. My wife and I went this afternoon and had a great time. Our guide and chef was Patty and she was very knowledgable. We are trying to learn a bit of Spanish so she was nice enough to do... More

We are a 76-year-old Australian couple who came on a five-day trip to Guatemala, based on the recommendation and photos of a friend. We were a bit apprehensive given the warning on travel advisory websites. We need not have worried. Because of excellent tour guides, we were complexly safe. In Antigua, we could safely walk the streets at night alone.... More

We had not planned to go to the Chocolate Museum, but since we stumbled onto it we decided to check it out. We did not take a class, but enjoyed asking questions of the employees who were very kind in answering and giving detailed explanations. The sample were delightful and of course we did purchase some of the dark chocolates.

Cool place to visit! They give you samples of chocolate and there are more samples around the store. You don't feel pressure to buy anything and you learn about the chocolate making process.

It is a good place to cool off after a walk around Antigua. Worth your dark chocolate cakes and good coffee. If you like handicrafts, there are many, if you want to learn about cocoa, they also give you classes

You can get very good quality and local cacao products (also special things like tea, beans and Maya-Cacao). The staff is doing a good job and I really enjoyed the cacao-course where you learn about the history of cacao (more then just reading about it in the museum) and how to process everything from bean to hot chocolate. A worthwhile... More
