Taste of Yucatan

Cooking in Merida is one of the best things you can do while you’re staying . The Taste of Yucatan offers you the real chance to involve among the Yucatecan culture throug its delicious cuisine. Our cooking classes tour gives you the opportunity to see and experience at first hand the Yucatecan flavors, colors and smells.

We start our Merida cooking experience meeting at the Caribe Hotel by the Hidalgo park, the guide will take you walking thru the plaza grande to one of the most important markets in Merida, this is a very traditional place where the wives go to shop their groceries for the day. These markets aren´t very frequented by tourists, you´ll be able to see the real lifestyle in Merida, the one that usually is only known by locals, see the freshest fruits and vegetables from the region, it´s all so colorfull and alive, in this market I can garantee you that you are going to see, smell and taste things you won´t ever see again!

After our Merida market tour, we are going to take a public bus to go to a local home and our host will be the Lady of the house, who will kindly recibe us. We start the Yucatecan food cooking class while talk about the culture, experiences in Merida, traditions and many other Yucatan related subjects. After learning how to cook Yucatecan food we can start eating together! This is an authentic experience, nothing will be fake or exagerated, you will be, for one day a Meridan!
