While there are many posts/discussions on Guatemalan coffee, rum, and traditional clothing, there seems to be a dearth of information on chocolate. Chocolate's main ingredient, cacao, is an ancient Mayan delicacy and while in Guatemala one should definitely experience the Guatemalan chocolate of today. A chocolate that is exceptional is made by IXCACAO. It is handmade in Guatemala and is available in many of the shops around Antigua. It's a local product that goes really well with a nice cup of freshly brewed Guatemala coffee.

If you're interested in chocolate, check out the link below, too. We had a fabulous afternoon there, learning about chocolate, sampling all sorts, and learning to make our own from scratch:

Both great options. Chocolate Bob is the maker of Ixcacao, and my "daily chocolate" fix. I also LOVE the ChocoMuseo and stop in there each time I am in Antigua. In Panajachel, Dina's Chocolates is the place to go. Dina has been quietly making excellent chocolate for years.
