Eating Our Way Through Cancun
Izanie_L

My husband and I came to Cancun to celebrate our honeymoon and his birthday. We booked this tour because we were excited to learn more about Mexican food and the culture. Nassim was our food guide and he was awesome. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and a great teacher. Luckily, my husband and I got the VIP experience because we were the only people who booked the tour for that day/time so that took our experience to the next level and made it even more special for us. We started off at a local market and had tamales for breakfast. One was chicken with a red sauce and one was a strawberry flavored. Both were delicious. Then we went to a place where we got to learn how tortillas were made. We took some ingredients back with us for the cooking class. After that, we visited the produce market and picked out all the produce we were going to use for our class. Once we were finished with that, we had a little time to shop for souvenirs before we went to the restaurant for our cooking class. Once we got to the restaurant we changed into our uniforms and began the class. We made tortillas, sopes, enchiladas, guacamole, and arroz con leche. Everything was amazing. We are from California so we thought we knew what good Mexican food was but this was next level. Everything was just so fresh and delicious. Also, the bartender did amazing with our drinks. The mojitos were delicious and he certainly gave a generous pour 😄 Over all 10/10 would recommend

Me and my grandmother booked classes and had a wonderful experience. My grandmother doesn’t eat chicken and Nassim did a wonderful job at making sure she was included in all the activities.

We had a fabulous time! Going to the market to obtain the necessary items and then going to the restaurant and preparing them was a great experience. Diego, our guide and chef, was the best. Personable, knowledgeable, a great person, took us through the food prep ending in a tasty meal. We had a great time thanks to Diego

Something unique when you are tired of the beach
Jade_S
, Jul 2021
This is a great lighter activity tour. The chef took us to market 23 where he showed us traditional cooking tools and the food in the market. We got to have a choice of tamale and a warm traditional breakfast drink (forgot the name). After we collected the food we needed, we went to the restaurant where we learned to make guacamole, tortillas and sopas, roasted tomato enchilada sauce, and a style of rice pudding. Everything tasted great. They even included a margarita! Would definitely recommend! Great break from the beach stuff.

What an amazing experience. Loved getting to walk the markets and smell all the fresh fruits and veggies. Diego was wonderful to explain the cultural and historical background of the various foods and other items in the market. Making our own food from scratch was a blast (and I learned a few secrets to making the perfect guacamole). Highly recommend this experience!
