Chiapas Chocolate Tour

Tuxtla Chico, Chis., Mexico

Today we love chocolate for its delicious indulgent taste, but for the ancient Maya, the cacao pods from which chocolate is derived weren’t just the origin of a sweet treat; they were sacred objects and an important cultural symbol too. Learn why (and, of course, taste chocolate!) on a cacao excursion. You’ll see how cacao beans are turned by hand into a delectable treat, giving you newfound admiration for the chocolate bars you blithely buy at home.
