The tour was a great one for the low price. We got to try over 20 different types of chocolate. They had facilities too. The staff was nice and very knowledgeable about the types of chocolates.

We learnt more about chocolate making. It is very fun and informative. Kids enjoyed making chocolate on their own and able to taste a variety of samples. Very good place to visit when you are in Cozumel, Mexico.

Cozumel is an island off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula across from Playa del Carmen. It is a 40 minute ferry ride from Playa del Carmen and they leave every hour usually and there are a couple of ferry lines available.
