Fodor's Expert Review Samaritan Xocolata

San Gerardo de Rivas Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The sign says "Fine, Organic Artisan Chocolate," but all you need to know is that this chocolate is delicious. You can buy chocolate to-go, including turtle-shape chocolates filled with caramel and nuts, bonbons filled with ginger citrus or pistachio with Himalayan pink salt, beautifully gift-wrapped 70% dark chocolate, or truffles (including vegan-friendly rosemary-walnut and nondairy mixed-berry, so no one has any dietary excuse to resist). Sit down in the patio chocolate lounge and sip thick hot chocolate or devour a frozen banana encased in thick dark chocolate. If you're in the area for a while, you can book a 2½-hour chocolate workshop to learn how it's all made ($25, minimum of two people; two days’ notice required).
