Chocolate Dreams in San Carlos De Bariloche

This holiday capital of Patagonia is located in the southwestern region of Argentina near the Chilean border. Popular with tourists, Bariloche is known as a favorite destination for skiing and other outdoor activities, but for others it's a chocolate paradise. Here's a list of some of the best chocolatiers!


The city was established and populated by German and Austrian immigrants looking to create a new life for themselves in the 1800s. Take a trip down Mitre Street, Bariloche’s main thoroughfare, for evidence of their time-honored recipes of some of the most delicious chocolate you will try.


Old world meets new at Fenoglio, considered the first chocolatier in San Carlos de Bariloche. The chocolate is made from all-natural ingredients, including the best cocoa beans from Mexico - rich in flavor and velvety in texture. All ingredients are high-quality and there are no chocolate substitutes or hydrogenated oils. The store’s wide variety boasts over 150 kinds of chocolate.
