We really enjoyed our day visiting the market and going to a private home to cook and share a meal. Our hosts Suri and Sophia were very friendly and informative which made it a very special experience.

The tour was very well-done. Ruben answered all of our questions about the new foods at the market (and even gave us some background on the city as well), and Sofia was a friendly and generous host, and an excellent cook!

Mitch was our guide--very knowledgeable, friendly and spoke English very well---took us to Uxmal, Kabah and added on a tour of Chocolate growing and a traditional Mayan house where they demonstrated sisal making. We stopped for what turned into dinner at the end of the tour--Mitch asked if we wanted to see the extras and all agreed--otherwise the last stop... More

We spent a lovely day with Suri & Sofia learning how to cook a Yucatecan lunch. The trip through the market was an amazing introduction to life in Merida! Suri & Sofia were SO charming the day just flew by! And lunch was great!

Had a great time with "Adventures Mexico" (not Urban Adventures as previously posted). This is a fun way to enjoy and learn about the Yucatecan culture through food, and I highly recommend it. Do bring a camera and wear good walking shoes. We had a great time with Suri, our guide leading the way. Suri was a sweetheart; outgoing, informative... More

Definitely the highlight of our trip. Suri was our guide, and she was an absolute delight, taking us through every section of the market and arranging for tastes and explanations of everything. She was incredibly well informed, friendly, patient, helpful -- an amazing guide all around. Then we hopped the local bus to Sofia's house, where she guided us through... More

Our tour was lead by Ruben and we were accompanied by 4 others on the tour for a total of 6 people, which was a good number for this tour (more would be too many). Ruben patiently lead us through the central square for some brief history then off to the very large and incredibly busy market. The main city... More

Our tour guide Suri was fantastic from the get go. She brought us through the market explaining different foods to us, most of which we were able to sample. Once arriving at Sofia's home, we were greeted with open arms. What a wonderful lady and teacher! We assisted with food prep and cooking, and then we all were seated at... More
