Didn’t know exactly what to expect. It turned out to be very educational, fun, entertaining, enjoyable and delicious. Chef Enrique was excellent. We were a group of 8 and glad it was limited to that number. We were 6 of the 8 with ages from teens to elderly grandparents. We have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for 10 years. Wish we had discovered this years ago. This should be a must on your agenda.

The Puerto Vallarta Cooking Experience with Market Tour and Tastings was the highlight of our family vacation. We were 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Chef Enrique’s tour of the market was interesting and educational for all of us. The cooking experience in his home was outstanding and kept the attention and interest of our 13 and 15 year olds. The food we all prepared was delicious as were the margueritas! We highly recommend this excursion!
Amazing food and drink, don't miss out!

Our guide and chef Enrique met us at the mercado and shopped for delicious ingredients with us. There were 8 people in our group which was perfect. At the mercado, he gave us a little food history lesson, explained each ingredient, and showed how to choose the freshest produce and seafood. We then went to his beautiful home where we cooked such delicious food! Ceviche, shrimp soup, octopus tacos, and we made our own corn tortillas. And yes, how could I forget the specialty margaritas... ¡Muy delicioso! He also provided non-alcoholic craft drinks for the younger members of our group. If you enjoy cooking and eating amazing food, I highly recommend this experience!

Loved Every Moment! Carolina was Wonderful

Our family of four, which included a pre-teen and a teenager, enjoyed this experience. It was hands down my favorite activity in Cabo. Our kids are still talking about the fresh tortillas that we sampled while out shopping for ingredients. Carolina was our guide. She was very engaging and helpful. If ever we are back in Cabo, we will book another experience with this group.
