Learn the secrets of Mexican cuisine with a half-day tour that features a hands-on cooking lesson. Follow a simple step-by-step method to master Mexican gastronomy even if you are not a chef.


  • Learn the building blocks of Mexican gastronomy
  • Make your own tortillas and learn how to replicate this back home
  • Discover the simple trick behind the perfect Guacamole
  • Try an original Margarita, which will put you fav club's bartender into shame
  • Optionally visit a traditional market and learn to choose the best ingredients


After learning our 'Granma's cooking secrets, you'll be able to prepare back home a 4-course meal, even if you consider yourself a mess on the kitchen. Once you arrive at the venue, refreshments, fresh fruit and water or coffee will be provided. The venue provides an intimate setting at one of the best Mexican restaurants in Cancún which opened more than 40 years ago. Spend the next 3 hours learning the tricks behind great Mexican traditional cooking, and get to know the origins of each dish: guacamole, enchiladas, sopes, quesadillas, margaritas and a delicious secret dessert. Experience a real Mexican kitchen using traditional tools like molcajete (stone mortar), comal (flat griddle) and clay pots. Optionally, select to add roundtrip transportation and a sense-electrifying local market visit. After getting picked up from your hotel, head straight to one of busiest markets in Cancún with your chef/guide. Delight your senses as you stroll through different food sections and immerse yourself in the scents of different herbs, vegetables, meat and seafood. Your chef will show you how to choose the freshest items for your cooking class. Taking a cooking class is no doubt one of the best things to do in Cancún. Bring the taste of Mexico home, and impress your friends with your new skills!
