An educational, lazy afternoon experience that is punctuated with the region's best chocolate? Not a bad way to spend a few hours.

I did not know that this is the birthplace of chocolate. Small museum by an owner who certainly takes pride in the history of Chiapas. Be sure to take your ticket to the Jade Museum, as the ticket gets you in to both!

My husband and I got to toast, peel and then grind cacao seeds to make our own chocolate bars and chocolate to drink. So much fun and you really learn how elaborate it is to make authentic chocolate. Can't beat it for $12 US!
