This was my third time to have the Cookin' Vallarta experience. It is always interesting and fun and the food that you help prepare is fabulous. Enrique really knows his history and the trip to the market with Enrique and Susana provided great information about how to choose fresh fish and produce. Each time I have enjoyed different dishes and... More

Enrique toured us through a vibrant marketplace where we learned about Mexican culture and cuisine. Then we went to his house and cooked up a variety of guacamoles and garnishes for carnitas. They were extraordinary. A little tequila/mescal tasting was included. No need to eat dinner after this.....

We signed up for his market tour and cooking class with 3 generations of my family. 5 of us were supposed to go but my daughter got suddenly ill so my 14 year old son and retired great uncle (who lives in PV) attended.

My husband and I had a informative, excellent day that was fun and a very different type of shore excursion. We learned a lot about the Mexican cuisine and enjoyed the explanation of the products at market as well as the hands on approach in the kitchen and of course the sampling of all the dishes we prepared. It was... More

After, Enrique and his wife welcomed us into their home to cook the food from the market. The food was the best we ate in Puerto Vallarta. And the... More

What a great new tradition for our family. We loved the whole experience of starting the day with shopping for the ingredients we needed for our meal at the local market. The market was not the typical "big" market, but the locals market. Then we headed to the owners home where we were greeted by his wife and the others... More

An excellent addition to our trip! Enjoyed visiting the market where the locals shop, viewing all the fresh ingredients they use for their cooking and learning about different peppers and why the chicken is yellow! At the house, we prepared guacamole, salsas, and tacos al pastor, plus pressed our own tortillas from dough - delicious!! Enrique, Joanna and the team... More
