We arrived just in time for the 45 minute workshop and it was educational as well as fun. Diana was our bilingual instructor who showed patience while fielding questions from our inquisitive group. She even took time to research answers to our more technical questions before moving on to the fun stuff.

The candy making experience taught us a lot about chocolate while allowing us to create a yummy souvenir. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for something both fun and out of the ordinary.

My husband and I did the full class and while it was a tad pricey ( about $20usd each) we really enjoyed it.
The class covered pretty much everything from the steps involved in production, the plants themselves as well as the history.
We made a chocolate bar, drank hot chocolate and tea as well.
I'm not a big fan of sweets as a general rule but I really enjoyed it.
The store itself is fairly small but if you don't have the time for the class it is worth a stop as it is right by the square for a snack and a free sample of cocoa shell tea.

It's quite a touristy thing to do but we had a great time and actually learned alot, specifically about Mayan culture! Our teacher was really sweet and we had a great time. Would recommend if you're looking to fill your culture cup and kill a couple hours in Antigua. :)

The chocolate making was a lot of fun. You get to learn a lot about how chocolate is made. It is a hands on experience all the way down to actually tasting the fruit of the cacao to roasting the beans. Totally recommend!

SO FUN and informational - and delicious! Josalin (hope I spelled that right) was our instructor and she was fantastic and engaging. This was the first class/tour we did in Antigua and it was a great way to start our vacation.

We made our own chocolate and learned about the Mayan history behind it. Super fun, learned a lot, and got to roll up our sleeves a bit.

Making our own chocolate was a great deal of fun, we enjoyed the class about how chocolate is made and sampling each step in the process, but it was super fun to make our own chocolate bars with the flavors and ingredients we wanted.

This was a great activity to do with kids, my 11 year old daughter loved it and so did I. Highly recommend!

So fun! The girl who taught our class was so cute and energetic. We learned a ton, it was very hands on, and just an easy afternoon activity that anyone could enjoy. They were also super accommodating and helpful. Definitely recommend!
