Chocolate and Piñata Seaside Workshop - CZ4Z

Ready to reserve this excursion?

Gather the family together for a fun, hands-on workshop that has you processing chocolate, just like the Mayans and Aztecs have done for centuries, as well as learning how to craft a piñata. These activities all take place on a lovely seaside terrace on the world-famous Stingray Beach.

Evidence of chocolate beverages in Mesoamerica date back to 1900 BC. Mayan tombs had vessels with residue of a chocolate drink, and Mayan hieroglyphics depicted chocolate used for ceremonial purposes. Chocolate only became popular in Europe after the Spanish conquest. In your workshop, you’ll grind cacao beans into a paste, combine with water and spices and pour the mixture back and forth between two containers until a frothy head develops. This process has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. After, enjoy your tasty chocolate creation along with delicious chocolate cake.

Then it’s time to make a piñata together. Piñatas have been a part of Mexican culture for centuries. First used in religious celebrations, piñatas today are used for a number of different celebrations. You’ll craft a piñata filled with Mexican candies, one that you and the kids take turns breaking open. You’ll also help build a portion of a larger piñata. Each week a completed piñata is donated to a local orphanage, and you’ll receive images of ecstatic children busting open the piñata you helped create.

• Prepare chocolate: Use a traditional method Mayans and Aztecs have used for centuries; then sip your delicious chocolate creation.
