What a wonderful way to step into the culture and culinary traditions of the Yucatan! Ricardo was a gracious and wonderful guide and the family that invited us into their home for the cooking class was welcoming and friendly. It was a great way to spend a day! Thank you!

Our guide, Ricardo, was punctual, informative, friendly and very interesting. He led us on a fascinating tour through the Merida market and asked for our grandsons' help in choosing ingredients for our cooking class. With purchases in hand, we took a local bus to our destination. Cooking in someones home with her family there, made it truly meaningful. Our hostess was most gracious, allowing us to work with all of the ingredients and steps in preparing a delicious meal. We had participated in many other similar experiences over the years in several countries, and this was truly one of the most memorable.

I enjoyed seeing personal house and cooked the base of tortilla.
And also, two boys and me became good friends.

We found the small group tour of the market to be really interesting and the guide knowledgeable. It gave us a much better insight into the food of the region. We went by local bus to the house of the chef which was great and it was lovely having the cooking session and meal in the chef's home. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Merida.

We really enjoyed our market your. Very interesting and cleverly adapted to our group's needs and preferences. Lots of interesting information about Mexican culture and food in particular. We tried lots of things- some whih will never be triedagain. Jorge really made a big effort. However, the cooking school was really sitting in a kitchen watching someone cook and occasionally chopping some vegetables or stirring pot. A good day- but I wouldn't recommend this if you are looking or a hands on cooking experience.
