Tour description

A relaxed afternoon of chatting, learning about cacao and tasting delicious chocolate treats. A fantastic cultural and gastronomic experience with a local friend.

​You´ll learn the history of chocolate and how cacao is processed into chocolate drinks and bars, and even beauty products. We will visit 4 different chocolate spots in the south neighborhoods. First, we will learn how chocolate is made at the Chocolate Museum, where we will also try different kinds of chocolate and even watch them make it from scratch. Then we will visit two amazing chocolate factories and a unique chocolate inspired cafe. It's artisan chocolate and fine chocolate - Mexican and Belgian, bars and bombons, chocolate drinks and chocolaty desserts. A little history, some culture and lots of chocolate. It's interesting, fun and delicious!

Delicious lunch options will be available, so bring your apetite.

Join us and find out why we say cacao is the super food of the Gods.

This chocolate tour was very enjoyable, and our guide was professional, fun and knowledgeable. We visited the chocolate museum, a chocolate shop and fancy bonbon style chocolate factory / cafe. Our guide Memo lives in the area and knows the neighbourhoods very well. He also worked in the chocolate world in the past, and has a good understanding of the industry and chocolate in general. Along the way, we had a chance to purchase different cocoa and chocolate related products. Overall, it was a fun few hours to learn about the world of Mexican chocolate and wander the streets of Puerto Vallarta.

So far the best experience with Guru Walk in Mexico! 🥇On top of educating the group about all aspects of cocoa beans growing, processing and differences among them - and what makes chocolate so great👍 Eduardo went above and beyond with bringing his own chocolate samples to show and taste including the new Ruby variety and we got a discount in the Chocolate museum, which is a local gem as well. Special thanks for scientifically explaining on examples what cr@p is being constantly shoved on consumers as chocolate in most North American stores. What was also standing out is his intimate knowledge of life in PVR and answering all group‘s questions no matter related to chocolate or not, whether it’s about haggling for souvenirs, places to snorkel, vegan food, dining options or weather and surfing in and around PVR. Definitely highly recommended! Bring cash for delicious choco samples, you’d also want to get some back as authentic souvenirs as well. Liquid chocolate was to kill for and quite nutritious as well - I most def didn’t miss skipping lunch😜
