The Chocolate Factory Mayan Monkey Mijas has launched a free access area which discloses the origins of this delicacy.
The history of chocolate goes far back but for Mayan Monkey Mijas, the factory producing this product is not so ancient. In June space was made available “to all residents and visitors,” said Jason Godwin, manager of the museum area through which we can get to know the lands which has brought into the world this raw material for producing chocolate. Costa Rica and Guatemala are represented in dozens of photographs arranged in the lobby of the establishment located in the heart of Mijas Pueblo, in the Virgen de la Peña Square. Open to the public daily until 23.00 and from July it will extend its hours to 01.00. “It is interesting to know the history of chocolate and its origin,” said Juan Tirado who, accompanied by his girlfriend, normally goes on holiday to the Costa del Sol. The museum is highly recommended in Trip Advisor as a place to visit in Mijas Pueblo.
There are a lot of visitors who are surprised to find this type of museum amongst the streets of a typical Andalucian pueblo.
The brains behind the museum are Godwin and his partner, Eli Mc Carthy, who are international entrepreneurs, extreme chocolate lovers and committed to promote Mijas with all its charms , from the traditional to the modern.
