I'm the owner of www.cho.co.cr, a local chocolate boutique specialized in chocolate pairings. As a chocolate addict, I did a diligent work in selecting the chocolate that goes perfectly with our rum. I invite you to a different experience where all your senses will be stimulated!

My boyfriend drinks rum so this experience was for him. He enjoyed the rest of my rum after I tried the first sip or two. (I prefer sweet and mild liquors) The chocolate was delicious and right up my alley. At the end of the tasting the employee brought me a sample of a coffee rum since I don’t care for regular dark rums. It was delicious!!! Very thoughtful bonus.

This was a really fun and informative experience. The shop itself, where the pairing takes place, is beautifully laid out, with displays (including chocolate) of several local chocolate makers. Local means Puerto Viejo specifically, not Costa Rica generally, which was especially nice. Information on how the chocolate is made, and how different fincas use different methods to affect the flavor, was super interesting.

I did the tasting of the pairing Chocolate/Rum. It open my skills and curiosity about both. Martin was really nice and took the time to make me try an improvised pairing from the questions I asked to him... They have also happy hours every days. Must do in Puerto Viejo!

I really enjoyed this rum and chocolate pairing! I have never been to a pairing before, but I really enjoyed the experience. Martin's staff was friendly and knowledgable. The pairings worked really well together, and it was great that all of the food/drink was local! Overall, Choco was a cool respite from the heat that offered delicious chocolate (and rum!) in a friendly environment.

Martin was extremely knowledgeable about the chocolate and the rims. Also he was personable and friendly. Could not have had a better time and was one of the best experiences in puerto viejo.
