    Amazing chocolate!!
    My wife, aunt and myself went here for a chocolate treat and it turned out to be an amazing find! It had the best chocolates I have ever had!! The detail and work that must go into making them (you'll see what I mean when you visit) is extraordinary. Very reasonable prices and extra goodies are for sale such as coffee, hand crafted mugs, hot sauces, etc. Definitely worth a visit!
    Thank you so much for your amazing review! Great to hear you enjoyed it so much. Have a nice day :)

    Beautiful Cacao xxx
    I dropped in one hot afternoon looking for some deliciously decadent chocolate… and I found it! Yum! I would say that I am a true lover of Cacao and enjoying the rich and beautiful artisanal quality that Cata Chocolate had to offer was such a memorable experience — Cacao can open the Heart and make the Soul sing, and this Cacao certainly delivered such gifts 🙏🙏 gracias pacha mamá & mucho gusto Cata Chocolate 🍫

    A real local Costa Rican chocolate farm
    My wife and I booked a trip to visit the Finca chocolate farm. We got an amazing tour from the friendly farm workers. Seferino was friendly and in no rush and showed us the entire process of growing cacao, opening the fruit, roasting the cacao, and we got to make our own chocolate bon bons to eat and take home. We also got to walk around the farm property. The owner was visiting and we bird watched and drank Costa Rican coffee. We saw Toucans and parrots! It was a real, unique Costa Rican experience we will never forget!

My new travel friend and I stumbled upon this chocolate shop - Artisanal and we really enjoyed the owners they were funny, knowledgable, and very sweet. Just like the chocolates, they even did a chocolate tasting and gave us a lot of history about the Chocolate in Costa Rica.

We bought a lot of things but mostly love the "CRACK!" Lol :) its that good!

I stopped by Cata Chocolate to see what they were about and scheduled a chocolate making class with Susana.
It was great! She walked me through the whole process to get from bean to chocolate bar. Then I got to make some chocolate molds. Best of all, I got to take some of it home!
Susana was very professional, friendly, and informative. Since no one else had scheduled that day, I really appreciated she offered the class just for me.

Freddy was very generous with his time and so enthusiastic and passionate about sharing his knowledge and story of Cata Chocolate. The chocolate is amazing, we may make a 2nd trip if there is any room left in our suitcases. Our experience with Freddy will be one of the more memorable moments from our vacation.

This is a must stop!!! Chocolates are handmade and flavorful. Owners are very nice! I love Dark Chocolate and it was smooth and melted in your mouth. No wonder this is an award winning store.

Great, fun instruction on the ‘art of artisan chocolate’ from start to finish to a group of newbies who were lucky enough to be able to participate in each step.
Instructors were patient, kept us ‘on task’ and made sure we produced a product ‘almost worthy’ of their standards.
Highly recommended experience.

Cute store with artisan chocolates and other great high quality souvenirs such as coffee, hot sauce, pottery mugs, hats, T-shirt’s. Staff was helpful and we sampled most of the chocolate products.
