These ladies are warm and welcoming with no pressure. The tour is short and sweet and fun. We saw the chocolates being rolled before our eyes. It's a historical Mayan tradition.

The concept is nice: a small museum that showcases a factory of Mayan chocolates, a degustation room and an area to buy the chocolates. A variety of 10 chocolates are offered for tasting; all of the highest quality and with very interesting combination of flavors:...More

Small intimate shop with chocolate workshop and tour. Ricardo and Sadee were delightful guides who are very articulate in English. We tasted each flavor and purchased 14 boxes as gifts and yummy souvenirs. This side trip on charming quiet street is worth departing the highway....More

Nice tour along with some history of chocolate itself and how they manufacture it. There is sample tasting at the end with many different blended favors. We bought several packs and really enjoyed them.

I'm glad to see people who enjoy their job. We had a nice experience in this brief tour, our host was very friendly and kind, despite the heat and our curious 1 year old, the chocolate tasting was delicious.
