Looking to enjoy a tasty treat while in Puerto Vallarta? Chocolate-lovers don’t want to miss the Choco Museo. The year-old, multilevel museum tempts visitors’ taste buds with guided tours and chocolate sampling. On the tour, chocolate devotees are educated about how the tiny cacao bean is transformed into a flavorful food, the history of cacao in Mexico and how it’s used in Mexican dishes, and why Mexico’s cacao is preferable to other regions’ (hint: the climate!).
The Choco Museo offers several workshops, too, including a Bean to Bar workshop, a truffle-making workshop and a mole poblano workshop, which highlights how to make one of Mexico’s signature sauces. Prices begin at $35 USD.
In addition to tours and workshops, the museum entices chocolate enthusiasts with an onsite boutique, which sells 100% organic chocolate truffles, moles and more decadent chocolate delights.
Choco Museo is located at Calle Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez 128 and is open daily from 9am to 10pm. For more information or to schedule a tour, call 322-223-4052 or visit www.chocomuseo.com.
