This tour was amazing!!! I asked so many questions before the tour even started and I booked last minute but they were able to accommodate me. When I arrived, I was greeted promptly by Delmy, she's so sweet! We had a short walk from the park and went to Cristina's house to cook. I was a little late but they were happy to see me. We cooked for about 2 hours and I learned how to make vegetarian pepian and the culture and history behind the dish-I even learned how to make tortillas! We also made hibiscus tea. After we set the table and exchanged stories and I learned more about Guatemalan culture and their daily lives. This was such a memorable experience and these are the most kind, hard working and thoughtful people you'll meet in Guatemala. I'D HIGHLY RECOMMEND DOING THIS WORKSHOP!
Best Mayan cooking class authentic village of Paramos by antigua

If you want a truly authentic non-touristy Guatemalan experience this is it. This small local company aims at keeping local culture alive via small scale tourism In the form of cooking classes, coffee plantation tours, textile and market tours etc etc...These people live in the small town of Paremos nearby Antigua and the money goes back to this local community. My experience was a cooking class. The owner herself came to Antigua to pick me up and together we went via “chicken bus” for half an hour to her hometown Paremos. In this very typical small Guatemalan town where not even one tourist could be found I took a cooking class at her friends house. Her friend of Mayan heritage and her daughter demonstrated, and I was able to participate as much as I wanted, how to prepare this very tasty low-fat chicken/veggie stew. Making handmade tortillas Guatemalan style was also a lot of fun. Everything was purchased at the local farmers market, filtered water used for hibiscus tea, and a wood fired stove was used to prepare the meal which was later served on traditional clay dishes. A typical Sunday family dinner or wedding meal I was told. If you are someone who normally enjoy chain restaurants/hotels and are comfortable with the overpriced tourist restaurants in the town of Antigua where local people can not afford eating this is maybe not for you but if you want a slice of the “real Guatemala” in the setting of an authentic family home then this is the best experience you can find around Antigua. I should add that the price is the best you’ll find as well. Thank you B1 Experience for a wonderful day.
