This was an awesome experience and it was so intimate and you feel like you are in your grandmothers kitchen learning how to cook - they grow majority of the food onsite and she takes you out and shows you the garden - we missed the breakfast because our transportation driver got lost but I would definitely recommend and eating the lunch that you cooked was the end to a perfect day.

EVERYTHING! We had a blast. Alejandra and her team are the most welcoming, professional, friendly, inspirational cookingschool-team every met! And I have done many of those cooking courses😊. It’s a day filled with discovering new flavours, learn how to use your taste palette, get to know a lot about the real, traditional Mexican cuisine, cooking methods and ingredients- and all this in the most beautiful and serene setting in the middle of the jungle.

This food class was the best experience that my husband and I have had in Mexico. We fell in love with our chef Chris and Alejandra, they were so sweet and patient with us and made us feel like we were part of the family. I would absolutely recommend to anyone that wants to do something different and fun and I will definitely do it again when we come back.

You will not taste Mexican food like this in your hotel!!!!

5-Star excursion all the way! We had a pleasant gentleman pick us up from our hotel which was 40 minutes from Chef Alejandra's kitchen. Roundtrip fare was approx. $90- we had 4 people in our party and we picked up another couple on the way- so the experience was max. 6 people. The property was secluded in the Mayan lush jungle like atmosphere- there was a very large garden with many fruits and vegetables. It was a rainy day but it did not spoil the fun as was most indoors or under a pavilion ourdoors. I suggest wearing comfy shoes to walk around as the outdoor garden area. THere was also sunscreen and bug spray provided free of charge. We began having breakfast with Chef Alejandra with a famous Mayan tea along with danish and breads, we then prepared a 5 course meal- including homemade tortillas. EVREYTHING in the process had a story of the Mayan culture- a true authentic Mexican experience! The lemon/chicken tortilla soup was to die for! Chef Alejandra is very proud of her culture and brings this to life through her cooking and you will experience the same. You will not only learn about the history of the Mayan cuisine, but you will also get a hands-on tutorial on actual preparation of the food (measuring, blending, cutting, ect.). The cooking facilities look very authentic with bright colors, and we had disposable cute aprons that were also provided. The overall experience is an ABSOLUTE must if you visit Mexico! You will NOT taste authentic Mexican food like this in your hotel, I promise you! To Chef Alejandra- do not stop doing what you love to do as we will be back! Lisa & Claudio

Best experience in Cancun

The location and facilities are absolutely amazing and completely transport you into a different culture and place to learn new things. Alejandra welcomed us and explained a few things, then it was on the the first round of food and drinks. We relaxed and talked for a bit before getting started on our cooking and learning experience. From basic to advanced skills and techniques, Alejandra was patient and informative. Every step along the way she explained history and options to make the recipes easier to reproduce at home. We were so impressed with everything that we are planning to book one of their culinary vacations later this fall or next spring.

This was an amazing experience! Claudia was fantastic and we learned so much about cooking and Mexican dishes beyond just what we were preparing for the day. We prepared tortillas all the way from the corn to the tortilla, which was amazing. We will definitely be back on our next trip to learn more dishes. This was an all day experience. We arranged transportation through them (which was cheaper than a taxi so definitely arrange ahead of time either though then or Viator or another company or if you have a car it would be easy to drive) and were picked up at 9 and didn’t leave the class until after 5 to head back so plan for it to be all day. Also we were the only 2 at the class due to there being less visitors because of COVID so we got lots of personal attention. If you need to contact them to confirm or arrange transportation I was able to reach them through Google Message and she responded back to me through there. I wasn’t able to reach them on the phone but everything turned out fine and they picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel in Cancun once I arranged it with them.
