The Mayan Cacao Company is a place to discover the origins of chocolate in the same land as its creators: The Mayans. This is not a museum, it is an interactive experience where you become an explorer of the history of the most popular food in the world.

All this magical trip will be through our different areas in the park, you can also see how chocolate is made from scratch, dare to try a Pre-Hispanic drink of Mayan priests and emperors. We will finish with the opportunity to taste our famous chocolate margaritas! And in our boutique you can buy an unimaginable variety of products made from cocoa: soaps, lotions, sauces, handmade chocolate bars and much more.

This is a MUST DO if you are in the area. The history, flavors, and tastes of this experience pair perfectly with the nearby Mayan ruins. Truly a great experience!

We visited the Mayan Cacao Company and did the tour - it was a blast! The chocolate was to die for and learning about the process from our guide Mario was fantastic, we was kind, cool, and knowledgeable. This is a must do experience.
