Fodor's Review

On the same floor of the mall you'll find a great little chocolate shop called Kakao —choose an artistic little box emblazoned with artwork by local artists, and fill it with the elegant chocolates behind the counter. Flavors range from Earl Grey to parchita (passionfruit), ron (rum), and even culo de bachaco (literally "ass of the ant"), a spicy concoction that really is filled with ground-up ants—a traditional delicacy in some parts.
