What you'll do

In the morning we drive (1,5 hour) to one of my favourite colonial cities of the region to visit the local market. I will guide you into the authentic local market with all its colors and tastes. After, there is some time to explore the city center. Then we head to the Mayan village where we will meet with a Mayan family. Here you will discover the Mayan culture and cuisine. After a warm welcome in their traditional house, we will visit the organic garden where they grow exotic vegetables and fruits. We jump into the Mayan kitchen to cook a traditional and delicious meal interacting and learning from the local Mayan women. Discover different exotic ingredients and flavours during a cooking workshop. Take action learning how to make your own tortillas by hand. Of course you will discover and learn many new things about the Mayan life, traditions and art. We will eat all together inside the Mayan house. To cool off from cooking, a swim in a cenote is more than welcome. A relax end off the day full of new impressions. By participating in this activity you will contribute to preserve the local culture and traditions of this Mayan community.

Alberto & Karolien

As a real Mexican, I grew up in the kitchens of my mother and grandmothers. They taught me how to cook the traditional Mexican dishes. Moving to Europe, I missed the food of my home country. I decided to start experimenting with the few Mexican ingredients I found in Europe. Together with my partner Karolien, I started to teach Mexican Cooking classes all over Europe. A big hit. Returning to Mexico we started exploring the regional cuisines and discovered the Mayan cuisine. This food culture is so enriching and interesting. We love to share it with visitors of this beautiful region of Mexico.
