Mayan Chocolate Making + Water Fall

This half-day tour of chocolate making starts from the cacao tree and ends with a Mayan chocolate bar in your hands.


In the community of Maya Center, you will visit a small cacao farm where the farmer gives you a complete history of his organic cacao farm and a detailed explanation of how the beans are extracted from the pods and then fermented and finally dried and ready to be processed into chocolate.


Immediately after the farm, we head back to the small-indoors chocolate facility, where you will be greeted by the exotic aroma of chocolate.


During this hands-on experience, you will learn how to make your own chocolate on traditional grinding stones just like the ancient Mayans did.


The Chocolate Making Sessions at a living Mayan Museum offers you the best of Real Mayan Culture and its authenticity.


We then head out to a nearby waterfall for a quick swim before heading back to Placencia.
