Það sem verður gert

“At no other time has Nature concentrated such a wealth of valuable nourishment into such a small space as in the cacao bean.” Alexander von Humboldt

It was in the south of Mexico, more than 3,000 years ago when the taste and properties of cacao have been discovered.
Join us in this tasting experience where past and present converge with a whole cultural background and a bunch of flavors and aromas.

We will walk you through the history of chocolate while we use our senses to perceive a variety of Mexican chocolate in different presentations, from the way the Mayas and Aztecs consumed it, to the chocolate that conquered Europe.

We will try some of our favorite handmade chocolate produced by Mayan communities in artisanal and sustainable ways.

Highly recommend this tour! Our group had 7 kids, and Shamira did a great job telling the long (4,000 year) history of chocolate in a way that was engaging and interesting. She is a gifted storyteller. Also, the chocolate was excellent! We got to try different kinds of hot chocolate various dark chocolates, and also cocoa beans. Informative, interesting and delicious!

we joined this experience last minute because we wanted something to do and it ended up being one of our favorite parts of our entire trip. Shamira is an amazing storyteller and her passion for the history of chocolate made this unforgettable. by the end my husband and i were moved to tears, especially after consuming the heart opening cacao. we were sad we didn’t buy more of the chocolate that is available in the shop after the tour is over!

The chocolate was tasty and the bar where it took place was very cute. I would recommend this for people who are not familiar with Mexico or who are not Mexican.

Do this in Tulum! Such neat history and information to takeaway and her shop with all the chocolate that is sampled is an added bonus! She was very kind and informed and thoroughly enjoys sharing with others. Presentation and table set-up is lovely as is the sunset while the experience takes place. Definitely will recommend to friends and family.
