Museums & Galleries

The Dominican Republic is among the leading cocoa producers in the globe and also the first one to start sustainable cocoa farming. If you are a chocolate lover, then a visit to ChocoMuseo Punta Cana will be very enriching. Tucked away in a traditional white-washed structure with a thatched roof, it is located near Don Lucas Cigars. Get to know the history of cocoa that goes back as far as more than 5000 years. From an exotic beverage to a common currency, to savory dishes and sweet delights, you will catch a glimpse of how this tropical plant, known as 'food of the gods,' captured the hearts and imaginations of humans all over the world. The museum also makes their own artisanal chocolates and has a gift shop. Sample a few of their decadent treats. Buy cocoa beans, paste and nibs to make your own chocolates at home. Check out their gift store for cocoa infused rums, chocolate butter and handicrafts. You can also take part in their fun workshop where you get to make your own chocolate albeit for a cost.
