Carlina was excellent. What a fun way to spend a few hours grocery shopping and making home made mexican food at the home of the chef and her family. I highly recommend this excursion to anyone looking to spend 3 or 4 hours out of the heat to spend with locals.
Excellent experience
, Jun 2021
I’ve been traveling to Mexico for over 30 years and this is the absolute BEST excursion I’ve ever done. Informative, fun and delicious. Very highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it in Puerto Vallarta and Playa del Carmen. Loved Isse and his team.
Tamales, music, laughs and margaritas. What else do you need?
, May 2021
This cooking class was fantastic fun and super delicious! I went by myself when the rest of my group was doing other things, and felt very welcomed and learned lots of Mexican cooking techniques. Would highly recommend!
Great cooking experience.
, May 2021
This was a great experience for me and my husband. Carolina taught us not only how to prepare al pastor, a great margarita and many different salad options but also shared some great cooking techniques. The experience was fun and we were lucky to have another couple participating that was a lot of fun. I would highly recommend the experience.
Incredible experience!!
, May 2021
This is a must! Carolina made the experience. She is so personable and informative. We had so much fun cooking with her mother in her home. We made margaritas and amazing food. The energy was so positive and I truly think it made our trip. Couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience. If and when I’m back in Cabo I will be back to do it again.

This was an amazing experience from start to finish. I would recommend this and can't wait to visit Cabo again to take another class
Outstanding. A must do while in Cabo
, Apr 2021
Absolutely outstanding! Carolina and her mother (both. Gets- family business) were amazing. We enjoyed the local market and getting to cook at her mothers home (commercial rated) was so lovely. The level of detail they put into the ingredients and flavor was superb! Not the traditional “Beach Cabo” excursion, but I would do it over in a heart heartbeat!
