I really loved going to the local market to purchase ingredients (where we also got to try crickets). It was a nice small group, just 4 of us and our guide, Nassim was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and educated us on Mexican cooking and culture. I learned some new cooking techniques and we all got to enjoy delicious margaritas while our food cooked. Definitely a unique kind of activity I would highly recommend.

I found this trip to be very informative. The market tour provides tons of information on local produce that cannot be exported to other countries because they will disturb the natural balance of the ecosystem.

I've done many food tours & this cooking event was one of the best! Highly recommend this chance to work with a local chef to shop for ingredients & make a 4 course meal. After shopping for fruits/veggies at Market 23 (and picking up a few fruits we had never tried before), we headed to the restaurant to make lunch. The highlight was learning to make tortillas and sopes from scratch from the woman who makes thousands every day!

Hi Heather, thanks for your review! Cayetano also had a great time with you =) See you on your next trip to Cancun!
