It’s a chocolate store that also sells cigars and coffee. Nothing special but worth a walk up the stairs in you’re visiting Playa De Coco. I’d never recommend going to playa De Coco *just* to visit here, but if you’re there you may enjoy it...More

1st of all, get all those Willy Wonka visions out of your head (although, one of my all-time favorite movies). My experience with Cata Chocolates goes way beyond the chilled "deli case" (remembering Macy's Cellar, in NYC), and straight to the finca (farm), where I...More

We visited Cata Chocolate one afternoon that we were souvenir shopping in Playas del Coco. I had read a little about this place before stopping-in but I was surprised at what I actually found. Yes, this place is a small-batch chocolate maker but I was...More

All our truffles and bon bons are $2, and are 30-40 grams each. There is a large picture window in the back of the store that views our chocolate making facility, which is in operation Monday thru Friday 9 am to 5pm.

This teensy chocolate shop on the second floor is definitely worth visiting if you're in Coco Beach--especially if you like dark chocolate. And they offer free samples!!

Clean and compact bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturer. Chocolate is excellent quality, service is great. The woman running the shop was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. You can see the entire chocolate making operation behind a glass wall.

Delicious little morsels of chocolate in a variety of flavors. You will not be sorry! So creamy and tasty. A bit pricey, but worth it.
