Know More about this tour

This tour will give you an overview of the importance of the cacao seed for the Mayan Civilization. Chocolate is deeply rooted in the Mexican culture, beginning with its ancestry in the Mayan culture. It is the Mayans who considered cacao to be a sacred food and we too believe that there is something very enchanting about chocolate. You'll discover the tools used by Mayans to make the sacred beverage: "chocolhaa" (hot cocoa).
Live the experience of grinding cacao beans with an authentic chocolate mill to craft your drinking chocolate mix to take back home.
Discover the chocolate process inside our small factory. All along the tour you will try the different flavors of the cacao during its process (Raw and Rosted cacao beans, cacao paste and our product line) and cacao cooking uses.

This is a family operated business dedicated to the creation of handmade Mexican chocolate products. Located on the beautiful island of Cozumel, this factory has been in business since 2007. Because it is family owned, you'll sense and see the passion the owners have about what they do. They are dedicated to sharing the magic behind their chocolate and the origins and history of chocolate in Mexico.

  • This was a fun and educational experience. First, we were on a cruise and had to take a cab to the factory since transportation wasn't included in the tour. When you're getting off the ship with thousands of other passengers it's chaotic! The line to get a cab was ridiculous. We got a nice local security guy to let us out of the staging area which is under construction so we could walk a little way into the town and find a driver. Be aware that the factory is not a big operation and none of the drivers we talked to knew about it. We had the address so we found a cab to take us, but only after some negotiations over price. We were quoted up to forty dollars for a round trip. Settled on 10 for one way. At the factory we saw a lengthy video on the history of chocolate, then received a tour from the owner. Had some trouble understanding his English, but he was still very entertaining. Then we got to make some chocolate! You grind the beans into a paste, add flavoring and press into a mold. It's very dark and bitter tasting but still a fun thing to do! The owner called a cab for us to return to the port it's not walking distance, and again had to negotiate the fare, which seemed to be entirely unregulated. Without the transportation issues this would be a 5 star adventure suitable for the whole family.

  • Wow - we learned so much about chocolate and the history. We actually experienced grinding the beans and making a chocolate bar. It was fun. I would do it again and bring others. The history was facinating.
