Best Place in Mexico for Chocolate

27 Oct

National Geographic rated Maya Chocolate in Tabasco, Mexico as one of the top 10 places to get chocolate in the world.

Here in the likely birthplace of chocolate—the word itself possibly deriving from the Maya xocoatl—taste hot chocolate Maya style: thick, foamy, bittersweet, and flavored with chili peppers. The Spanish conquistadors tempered the bitter brew with sugar, cinnamon, ground almonds, and milk. Try it both ways.
Planning: Comalcalco, Tabasco, has a cacao museum and cacao haciendas.

I’m jealous of expats who live in Tabasco. 🙂
