Great experience that I highly recommend if you are passing through Cozumel! We were alone my daughter and I and joined Tania in the market to choose the ingredients with her. She adapts the menu to your tastes and dietary restrictions! Then head to his house for a traditional family cooking class. We prepare each dish together, and taste them as the course progresses. Without forgetting the cocktails based on Tequila (or Virgin for my daughter) Everything is good, fresh and very generous! A word of advice: don't take breakfast before ;)

The Private Cooking Class in a Family Home is an outstanding, experiential learning tour that delivers more than it promises!! You will be guided through a market learning and buying the ingredients to make an array of delicious Mexican cooking staples. Before your eyes, you will help the patient and capable Tania prepare a feast of delicious food and drinks. The little extras, like buying some different fruits just for the sake of letting you try them was such a treat! There is no scrimping here - you will definitely not leave either hungry or thirsty. Learning the traditional cooking techniques and having the individual recipes from your private cooking experience ensures that you can prepare your own Mexican fiesta for friends and family upon your return home. Truly, this tour exceeded our expectations and was beyond anything that we thought it would be. Well done, Jeep Riders Cozumel!!
