Chocoholics and chocolate lovers rejoice! The Malagos Garden Resort of the Puentespina family in Malagos, Baguio District opened the doors of the Malagos Chocolate Museum to the public on March 08, 2017.
On its 22 years of service focusing on ecotourism and agritourism, with icons such as Bird Park, Butterfly Sanctuary and Malagos Chocolates here in Davao City, the Puentespinas proudly offers us a place where to learn and educate ourselves about chocolates, and experience fun making chocolate bar.
A novel attraction that aims to reinforce the company’s advocacy to support local premium, and put the Malagos brand in the chocolate map of the Philippines and in the world. It is said to be the first chocolate museum in the Philippines.
My boys and I were blessed to be among those who had the first glimpse through an exclusive tour on that day before the public opening. Grateful for Ms. Charisse Puentespina’s invite! 🙂
The Puentespina’s Malagos Chocolates from Davao City have become popular and has continued to gain recognition even abroad.
Our farm, Malagos, takes its name from malakas na agos, which means “strong flow of water”. It is located along the equator where cacao thrives best. Here, the soil, the sun, the climate – our environment – come together to create the unique terroir that gives our beans their identity, an individuality that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world.

When in Davao at the Malagos Chocolate Museum, for P400 per 200 grams, you can make your own chocolates with various fillings and bring them home as well.
That is if you don’t finish eating them as soon as you get these in your hands while still inside the Malagos resort. For sure the kids and kids at heart within us would like to sample the chocolate you made. We had a heavy and delicious merienda buffet at the garden resort during the opening so I was able to resist eating them there plus they gave the pack to us as we were leaving the resort. Don’t forget to have their Malagos Cheeses too at the resort. I love Ms. Olive Puentespina’s mango chevre!
Now here’s a quick tour of this new Malagos Chocolate Museum that you should watch…
