Everything about Mexico Lindo is amazing. We are so happy that we had the opportunity to cook with such a talented chef and her staff. The food was outstanding, the knowledge that we learned will remain with us and the magic of the surroundings will remain in our heart. If you have the opportunity to visit the Cancun/Riviera Maya area it is recommended that you visit Mexico Lindo. The transport was clean, on time and friendly...very easy. Gracias Mexico Lindo you truly are beautiful Mexico.

This was an amazing way to experience the Mexican culture through a delicious 7 course meal that you help prepare. Chef Ale and her staff welcome you into their magical world at the edge of the jungle where you first got to enjoy Mexican coffee and cocoa with tasty pastries then walked out into the garden to forage fresh ingredients for the meal youd be preparing. You learn about layering flavors to create amazing dishes. Chef Ale encourages you to be as involved as you like so you can learn how to replicate at your home. At the end, we sat down with Ale and enjoyed a delicious meal. Would highly recommend this for anyone who loves to cook and eat authentic Mexican cuisine.

Alexandra is an awesome instructor and quite interesting person as well. We loved the cooking experience and have already used some of what we learned to treat our family to Authentic Mexican. Would do it again or other classes she offers.

I was looking for something different than the typical tourist activities when I found Chef Ali's cooking school! It was everything I expected and more. The recipes were great; I learned how to make tamales like I've always wanted. I can't wait share my new talents with friends and family at home.

My husband and I spent a wonderful day with Chef Alexandra in her kitchen. She shared some history of Mexico and the cultures that came together to create this thing known as Mexican cuisine. She is very high energy and kept us busy the entire day! This is a very hands on class and we worked! And what wonderful recipes we prepared. Chef said the recipes came from her grandmother with her own tweaks added. I can't wait to return home and try some of the recipes myself. Even though I don't have the amazing clay pots she used to cook everything I'm hoping I can come close to the tastes I remember.

My husband and 22 year old son went. Everything was as stated and better! They transported them from our resort in Riviera Maya. The environment was beautiful and clean. They LOVED the food and experience. Alehandra and her assistants were phenomenal. My husband and son are looking forward to creating a meal for our friends back home. Well worth the cost. The highlight to their vacation.
