You might've have heard and even tasted famous chocolates from Switzerland and Belgium, but what about Peruvian sweetness? April through August is a period of cacao growing and harvesting in Peru. In Cuscos' Chocó Museum (or simply, ChocoMuseo) you will have an opportunity to see different kinds of chocolate, and the factory that features the museum will show you how the chocolate and other cacao products are made. The best thing is they even let you try some of the most delicious samples!
