This experience was amazing! Such a perfect day with Lily and her family. The food was beyond outstanding. I learned so much and had the best tacos, quesadillas and guacamole I’ve ever had in my life! I can’t wait to make everything I learned at home with my kiddos!

What a great time! We learned how to cook amazing food literally in her kitchen and ate and drank as much as we possibly could. We got to try several new foods which made the dinner even more special. We learned about Mayan and Mexican cultures and their influences on our meal. Really incredible evening, I highly recommend it!!

Lily is the sweetest person ever! She greeted us with hugs and I INSTANTLY felt at home. I have learned the correct way to make guacamole and I have Lily to thank. We cooked and talked and laugh and most importantly ate until we were stuffed. This is a MUST if you are in Tulum!

We were taught how to make a full Mexican meal with salsas and my favorite guacamole— which was a little different from what I am used to but it was awesome. We also made pork pastor and I am not a big pork person but the meat was so tender and the marinade really transformed the pork. They made us feel like we were a part of their family. We were even offered the recipes from our hostess!! So excited to try these at home. My email address is: yojones94@msn.com
