The Choco Story is an eco-chocolate museum near the Uxmal ruins of the Yucatan. It sits on the site of an original hacienda and now operates as an interactive museum and cacao bean plantation. Its focus on the history, culture, and sustainability of cacao growth in the area makes for a unique and educational visit. The growth and production here is run in a community-driven, eco-friendly manner and is fair trade. 

Exhibits tell the story of cacao in this region, its importance and use in the Mayan culture, as well as economic and health properties. Visitors can view indigenous plants, experience chocolate cooking demonstrations, and even take part in a Mayan ceremony. The museum teaches about the differences between dark, milk, and white chocolate. Near the end of the museum route there is an interactive tasting, which unsurprisingly many cite as their favorite part of the experience.

Practical Info

Choco Story is located across the street from the entrance to the Uxmal ruins, at kilometer 78 of the Campeche-Merida road. It is open daily from 8 am to 5 pm, and costs 120 pesos to enter. Plan 1-2 hours to see the entire museum.
