We participated in the class about the history of chocolate. Our Guide for the class spoke both English and Spanish and did a great job accommodating both the Americans and the Guatemalans in the class. Class was both educational and fun as well as delicious. I'm so glad that we had the chance to visit here.

Booked a class about chocolate with 11 strangers from various parts of the world. We each grounded a toasted cacoa bean and make difference drinks, and candy with cumin, pepper, honey, sea salt, cinnamon, chili peppers and anise. Our instructor, Patricia spoke excellent English. Each individual had fun sharing stories.

this museum shows how chocolate is sourced and made. You can make your own (extra cost) or just sample their finished products and buy some delicious chocolate. What more could you want???
