Chocolates Kaokao

O ne of the more interesting and tasty things to do on Cozumel is to take a tour of the Chocolates Kaokao factory.

However, instead of a large production facility with workers cranking out bar after bar of ordinary, sweet confections, you’ll find a couple of rooms with a couple of dedicated artisans creating some of the finest chocolate made anywhere.

The small company is the life and passion of Cheyen, his wife Maryline and their daughter, Elisa. With the help of one chocolatier, they hand-make all of the chocolate products from cacao beans sourced from growers in Chiapas and Tabasco. They also lead the informative tours of their facility where the history of cacao is explained, and the process of creating a fine organic product is demonstrated. There is plenty of time for questions, to taste a few samples and you will have the opportunity to purchase their bars (I’m partial to the dark chocolate with orange) or one of the other chocolate products they produce.

They have big plans for their products, which includes growing their own cacao on the island. Maybe one day you’ll be lucky enough to buy Chocolates Kaokao products in the U.S. For now, you’ll have to visit Cozumel, Merida or the Riviera Maya.

The best way to book a tour , or to see a list of the local retail outlets that sell their products, is by visiting their web site












Welcome to the Cozumel Sun! I have been a full-time resident of Cozumel since 2006 and have a lot of great information about living in Cozumel to pass on to my readers. You have probably already noticed some of the new features and information available to you. Over the next few months I will be fine tuning this publication, with an end goal of providing my readers a complete directory of service providers, information on benefits available to residents with step by step instructions, and current news. I am the translator and editor of Cozumel Today Magazine and the creator of News Cozumel, an English section of news and information in "Tiempo de Cozumel", the oldest newspaper on the island. In addition to my editorial duties, I have provided volunteer translation services to residents and tourists. Credits: I create my articles by reading the newspapers: Por Esto, Novedades, and El Semanario. I receive press releases from the Government agencies, and I watch the local TV station news and listen to the radio. To the best of my abilities, I translate what I have read and heard into English. . If I ever copy anything word by word, I give full credit to the author and source, before and after the articles. If I am unable to take my own photographs or find relevant photographs on-line, I utilize those provided by the press releases. I have big plans for The Cozumel Sun and I hope that you continue to visit and tell your friends about this publication!
