We had an excellent experience at Cata Chocolate. The gentleman who helped us, gave us chocolate samples and shared his knowledge of the coffee and other products they sell. We purchased chocolate and coffee - we are very satisfied and highly recommend Cata Chocolate.

Completely overpriced chocolate shop with very slim selection. A huge disappointment. The young man had the audacity to ask for $16 for two smallish 55% chocolate bars. Don’t bother to visit this shop.

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!!
