Our Expert Guide will accompany you as you explore the Yucatán Peninsula and discover its deep connection with the world of chocolate. Here, the Mayan people prized chocolate so much that they planted sacred cacao orchards hidden deep inside cenotes – limestone sinkholes. Once more, Yucatán has become a chocolate haven, and mecca for chocolate cognoscenti.
On this 3-day, 4-night all-inclusive workshop dedicated to cacao and chocolate, you’ll connect with the ancient Mayas' taste for this “Food of the Gods”, while your every chocolate wish is fulfilled! You'll learn how to prepare a variety of chocolate treats, ranging from the traditional to more modern creations, all which are sure to tantalize your taste buds with their rich flavors
With the luxury package, you will be truly pampered. Your special getaway will be jump-started with an exquisite champagne-and-chocolate welcome. Here, you'll delight in deluxe accommodation in one of the spacious Garden Suites at Casa Lecanda, featuring an en suite spa tub.
Finally, indulge yourself with your choice from a menu of soothing treatments at Hacienda Xcanatún – a restored hacienda and spa in a tropical oasis north of town. One of their special treatments is La Caricia de Chocolate (“Chocolate Caress”) – featuring exfoliation, wrap/moisturization, and a massage, all employing natural cacao-derived products.
Join us for a relaxing getaway while learning to make tasty chocolates, treating yourself to an array of pampering spa treatments, and all things cacao!
