It isn't really a museum, in my opinion. There is a small room with an informative display as well as a video. You can also taste test some of the chocolate and chocolate liqueurs. The main goal is to entice you to buy expensive chocolate.

Loved the chocolate making course, which gave you an overview of the process of making chocolate and it’s history in the area. Orlando was awesome, very funny and informative. Making your own hot chocolates from scratch was interesting and fun. Would highly recommend this activity!!

Not just chocolate bars. Fabulous tea! Brownies, hot chocolate, liquor , and lots of creams for the body. And condoms! Samples help decide. Apparently won’t melt.

The chocolate choices are a bonus too. We’ve been searching for a lemon gelato as good as we’ve had in Europe and we finally happened upon it in the front of the ChocoMuseo. A wonderful surprise during a walk apres dinner.

This isn’t a detailed museum, it’ll give you a brief history of cocoa in South and Central America, especially in Guatemala. It’s mainly a shop where you can buy all sorts of chocolate products, from body washes and creams to food products as well. The...More
