My 21 year old daughter and myself took this class and it exceeded our expectations. Chef Cayetano and his sweet driver picked us up at our resort. The conversation about local culture was great. He then took us to an open market where the local residents shop. We truly appreciated being show this piece of Mexican life. The class was fun and informative. The chef’s genuine desire to make it a wonderful experience was touching. We had an amazing day and would highly recommend it! Lauren and Sue

The entire experience was amazing. Pick up from the resort was on time. Cayetano, our chef, greeted us at pick up and he spoke great English. We were taken through different areas of Cancun and Cayetano provided commentary on them. First stop was at a local food stand in market 23. We tried enchiladas with cheese and chicken. They were good. Then we walked around and picked out the ingredients for the class. Fruit, veggies and crickets to try. We arrived at the restaurant and went to work cutting up the veggies and cooking them. Cayetano gave us instructions for the recipes we used. We tried mamey, which is like papaya but different. It was good. The dried crickets were really good. We put lime and spice on them. Don't really have a taste other than the seasoning we used. Everything was so tasty and it was great to make it ourselves.
