Learn about our Chocolate Making Tour
Take a short drive from Hopkins Village to a cacao farm to learn about how the Mayans cultivate cacao trees, process cacao beans and making chocolate. The guide at the cacao farm will give you a detailed explanation and the process of how cacao beans are extracted from the pods and then fermented and finally dried and ready to be processed into chocolate.
This chocolate making tour starts from the cacao tree and ends with a Mayan chocolate bar in your hands. Our chocolate making tour takes place in the community of Maya Center where you will visit a cacao farm where the farmer gives you a complete history of his organic cacao farm, from there we head to the chocolate factory, which is 5 minutes away from the cacao farm.
