The Mayan Tribe were the first real chocolate expert that cultivate cocoa as a chocolate drink, because they believed that cocoa (Theobroma Cacao) is fruit of divine origin.
At Monggo’s Chocolate Museum, those first chocolate experts are remembered and besides learning about their history, we provide authentic Maya costumes for the visitors to rent and wear.
By putting these costumes on, you might feel as a noble Mayan citizen, thirsty for some chocolate. To enhance your experience, we offer Chocolate Tasting Experience to try the original cacao fruit and chocolate drinks with different composition. You can also make your own history and take your picture while wearing that noble Mayan costume.
We know now how important Maya people looked like from what rests today of Maya-cultural objects, like carved stones, ancient documents (written on a kind of paper made of plants) and especially on painted terra cotta vases and plates. All these objects show the kind of clothing worn by the Mayas.
A real Maya-dress is very complicated, super rich in detail and color. Therefore, creating those costumes took us months to realize.
