This was a great tour to go on. We tried a ton of chocolates, made our own bars and had an excellent class. Stephanie was awesome at teaching us all the wonderful things about chocolate and the company itself. We loved it. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to have a genuine experience. It was just us and another family in the tour which gave us very personal attention for questions and conversation. We also had a myan hot cocoa. It's a great place to make a memory. I bought some cocoa beans to take home and teach my boys who didn't get to go on this trip how to make a cocoa bar. A gift that keeps on giving 😊
This was an amazing experience. Stephanie was very knowledgeable and made the entire experience fun. We did the full factory tour where we learned the history of chocolate and got to make some of our own...as well as tasting a LOT of it...for the first time ever my wife said she'd had "enough chocolate"! I would encourage anyone to visit!

We just did the chocolate tasting tour and had an amazing experience. Jafet was awesome. Super friendly and knowledgeable. Whether you are a Cozumel local or a first-time visitor, this chocolate factory is well worth checking out. Acabamos de hacer el tour de probar chocolate y la experiencia fue increible. Jafet el guia fue super amable y aprendimos mucho. Gracias Jafet! Si eres local de Cozumel o estas visitando, la chocolateria vale la pena descubrir

Oh my goodness this experience was so amazing!! Stephanie was the sweetest tour guide and learning all about chocolate and it origin, how the Mayans made it. The experience of actually making the chocolate was so fun! Their store is very reasonably priced so we could bring back lots of goodies for our family to enjoy. Third trip to Cozumel and this is the most awesome thing I have done to date. Will be doing this again!!
