Chocolate Tasting in Quito, Ecuador

Chocolate Tasting in Quito, Ecuador

Ecuador’s colonial capital city, Quito, has a lot to offer. Take a walking tour to learn about and see colonial sites, do day trips from Quito to the Mitad del Mundo Monument and other sites, or explore the city on your own. Not to mention, you can also sample some of the very best chocolate on the planet.


The chocolate in Ecuador is very good and the Pacari company has worked hard to produce some of the best in the world. In 2013, at the International Chocolate Awards World Final in London, Pacari competed against several other premium chocolate makers and took home several gold medals for their unfinished dark bars. Their success comes from working hard to find the best national beans, only using the finest organic ingredients, and producing chocolate in small batches. This results in superior, unparalleled chocolate that you can learn about and try on a chocolate tasting tour.

Take the tour to Pacari’s tasting room in Quito and you will learn how organic chocolate is made, and how their certified process provides more benefits to local communities. Partakers in the tour also learn about ten varieties of Pacari chocolate bars. Best of all, though, take the tour and you also get a complimentary gift box of some of the very best chocolate in the world!

Have time to kill in Quito? The Pacari chocolate tasting tour is a good choice.
