Got there at about opening time (for the store), 8:30am, and had the place to myself for a few minutes before the bus arrived (arrrgg). The lights wrapped around and around the tree trunks looks tacky in the light of day. Lots of birds. They were every where. All in all it was well worth the trip. Made it to the store through the gauntlet of bus people and all I wanted was a small pack of dark chocolate, but after one look at the tourist pricing I did a one eighty and was out of there.

I tend to frame man made objects out of my pics, though I did get the below pic. And, if you've seen one box of chocolates you've seen'm all.

Th first time I went there, it was way out in the country! You can still buy the booze chocolates there that got EthelM started. Delicious and too pricey! The cactus gardens are beautiful!

Expensive chocolate but it's probably the best I've had

There is a small amount of tourist pricing, but good chocolate is actually expensive and theirs is some of the best in the region.
