    Cooking was fun as we were only 3 people, but instead of 3 hours, we were done in 2 hours. I would have liked to have looked up, but then it was cleared quickly and the driver of the other two participants was already ready to pick them up. $ 55 is quite expensive

    Our chef was personable and talented in the culinary arts. The food she taught us to prepare was so tasty. Our driver was just as wonderful as he too was a part of our experience. Love, though unexpected, Costa Rican food. Unfortunately I forgot to give our chef my email address so I don’t have the recipes she used. All in all a great experience.

    The location is really cool, but apart from chopping some vegetables and forming a tortilla, you didn't really do much. Unfortunately, you stand around a lot. I had imagined it to be more active.
