I had seen how highly rated Can Cook Cancun had been on Trip Advisor a year ago but it didn't fit with our plans. This year however my wife and I were able to leave the beach one day and we attended Chef Claudia and Lorenzo's beautiful home for a truly wonderful experience. I cannot say enough about their pleasant... More

A wonderful cooking class (much more than I expected). Chef Claudia was great. Made multiple dishes under her direction. Her knowledge and expertise was outstanding. Well organized and cooked in her home. Would recommend to any who want a real Mexican cooking experience. Well worth the money.

I took a cooking class last week while in Cancun on vacation. Transportation was arrange for me by Can Cook. There were several take aways. I learned how to cure my mortar and pestle that I purchased in Mexico 12 years ago. At the end of the class I enjoyed the meal that was prepared. Photos people have posted are... More

My wife and I were looking for something different to do on this vacation. She loves cooking and I love eating so this was a perfect fit. We found this searching attractions on Trip Advisor. We booked about a week before we arrived and found this to be a very easy process. Chef Claudia and Lorenzo are very welcoming and... More

If you've been to the theme parks around Cancun -- or don't have much desire to see them -- you should try Can Cook in Cancun. The theme is Mexican food and how to prepare both popular and unique dishes. You'll love the hands-on experience of preparing the dishes. Our class consisted of eight people, mostly "foodies" plus a tag-along... More

Six of us signed up for this all-day event after seeing the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. We had a very interesting and educational day, with an absolutely fabulous meal at the end - and other goodies during the day. Do not plan on going out to dinner if you take the day class - you will be full. Something... More

Our visit in February '15 was our second experience at Can Cook in Cancun. Chef Claudia and Lorenzo are a treat, and the instruction itself is very informative and entertaining. We highly recommend this experience for any foodies visiting Cancun. We thought we knew something about Mexican cooking, but forget about it! On both visits we learned history, ingredients, and...

Our ten days in Cancun was highlighted by Claudia's 8 hour cooking class. It was fantastic and we will be back.

At first, I was hesitant to spend the money for this outing, but after talking to people at the pool who attended these classes every year when in Cancun, I had the reassurance that I needed to go ahead booking a session for my husband and myself. We were not disappointed! Lorenzo warmly welcomed us to their home providing us... More
