Such a wonderful experience. Entering the kitchen, we were immediately hit with the delicious smells of chocolate. Our tour guide Axel Flores was so knowledgeable about the Mayan culture and has a very well developed taste palate. He was the perfect tour guide, showing us also where the locals hang out. Our chocolate making expert Christy was so cute and made our chocolate making experience enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this activity to everyone.
