This was an amazing experience. Alejandra welcomed us like friends and taught us techniques and recipes to bring to our home kitchen. Gardens surround the building with organic produce to supply the kitchen. If you're looking for an authentic experience you'll learn so much about Mexico & their food.

Holy crap was this activity fun! The adventure park that it is in looks really cool as well. Make sure you use the bug cream in the bathroom because the mosquitoes are bad.
