Hot Chocolate at Chocolate Museum

Hot chocolate may not sound like a Peruvian classic. However, this country grows some of the best cacao in the world, and sampling the local chocolate can be an exquisite experience. Be sure to visit the ChocoMuseo, a Latin American chocolate museum and workshop chain with locations in both Lima and Cusco. Here, you will find hot chocolate prepared fresh from pure, organic cacao bars – a truly decadent experience. You can customize your drink from a wide variety of chocolate types, based on place of origin and percent of pure cacao.

The Best-Smelling Museum

This is the best-smelling museum I've ever been to! Though I was skeptical at first, this is a definite must-see in Cusco. There's a small but info-packed exhibit on the history of chocolate, as well as a small kitchen for daily classes and a coffee shop. I sipped my mug of hot chocolate while overlooking one of Cusco's beautiful squares.

All About Cacao

"Making chocolate where cacao grows," is the tagline of ChocoMuseo, which has locations in cacao-producing countries like Peru, Guatemala, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Located two blocks from the central square, the Cusco outpost is more of chocolate experience than a full-fledged museum: you can take a two-hour workshop to craft your own treats, watch chocolate develop from bean to bar at the artisanal factory, or just sample the goods at the on-site cafe.
