The visit to the chocolatier was fabulous. Such a lovely personal touch and inside view of traditional chocolate production from beginning to end with yummy tortilla breakfast provided fresh off the open fire. Was disappointed with our 1/2 hour late departure. Turns out the tour guide spent that time selling the last remaining seats to people walking off the ship. This is not acceptable

We were on a small group tour with 10 people. Counting the driver and guide made 12. They showed up in a VERY tight 12 passenger van. This made it very difficult for the customers (all senior citizens) to crawl into the middle and back rows. Once in van all was ok. Chocolate tour was great because we met the elderly woman who won the world's best chocolate award from like 10 years ago (Mexico flew her to Italy to compete and she won!). Great story. We were fed and given bottled water and coffee there while we watched and participated in her chocolate making process. Next was a Mayan ruins stop. Our guide got us a close parking spot and moved us through the complex of ruins at a steady pace with very informative narration. The time spent at both locations seemed just right. There was enough time for some shopping at both locations. Got back to the ship 2 hours before it was time to sail. I highly recommend this tour even with the tight conditions in the travel van.

This was a wonderful surprise and a true local experience. We went to Josephine's house, had a marvelous breakfast under her amazing bougainvillea and then she roasted and ground cocoa beans letting us help.

What a delightful excursion for a small group. Our guide and hostess let us participate in roasting and grinding the cocoa nuts. The breakfast was unique and delightful and the hot chocolate was superb.
