We had so much fun doing this cooking class. It was a great way to spend an evening. The chefs/teachers were so patient with us. One of the highlights was learning how to make the signature tortillas. 10/10 would recommend.

I really enjoyed my cooking class! I learned how to prepare tamalitos, Pepian and rellenitos as a desert. Everything tasted very good and you can enjoy your meal on a terrace with the best view on lake Atitlán. I can recommend the cooking class 100%.

We 2 had Claudia our Chef for ourselves. Class was 2,5 hours and we cooked a starter, main and dessert. We even did our own tortillas. The kitchen was spotless and we had lots of fun. Highly recommended.
