    Fantastic way to taste your way around Bucerias
    My wife, mother, sister, and I had an incredible evening on the Sunday Taco Tour. What a fantastic experience with the friendliest and most knowledgeable guides. Every stop was a unique treat, all of the food was beyond amazing, and the hospitality was exceptional!

    What a fun experience!
    It was our first time experiencing My Mexican Kitchen and we (6 of us) were blown away! Travis and Edgar were so welcoming and had everything all planned out for us. From start to finish they were warm, humorous, helpful and they really explained a lot about Mexican cooking that was so beneficial. We enjoyed eating what we created! The food was SO delicious and not complicated to make!! I highly recommend you take this cooking class the next time you’re in Bucerias/Puerto Vallarta

    Humorous, Educational, Delicious!
    We just spent a week in the Puerto Vallarta / Bucerias area on a Real Estate junket and our trip organizer recommended ‘My Mexican Kitchen’ from his visit on a previous trip. Thanks John! Our group (3 couples) participated in the creation of several delicious courses over a few hours, learning about traditional regional dishes and ingredients. The in-home, professional kitchen was large enough for several workstations, but intimate enough that likely no more than 8 could be accommodated at one time, allowing for personal attention from both the host Travis and the Head Chef Edgar. The next time we come to the PV area, we’ll be booking this dinner before we leave home. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful evening of food and culture.
    I was excited to take part in my third cooking class with My Mexican Kitchen. This class involved making several dishes with fish and seafood. My husband was skeptical as he does not cook much, but allowed be to bring him along. The gathering of about 7 people ended up being one of the highlights of our vacation. Travis and Edgar are masterful hosts, who provide the perfect balance of entertainment and education about food and culture in a way that is never boring. Right from the start , my husband started relaxing and enjoying the evening , as did I and the food, as always , was exceptional! I highly recommend My Mexican Kitchen for a relaxing evening of food, and learning about Mexican culture, as well as a unique opportunity to get to know others!

    Enjoyable evening , flexible on dietary restrictions , highly recommend
    We really enjoyed the chefs choice class and Travis and Edgar were excellent, warm hosts for the evening . Very accommodating to vegan and gluten free options , we spent a few hours guided through creating an authentic Mexican meal with 5 other guests where we were kept busy, entertained and well fed. We enjoyed the experience so much and hope to return again . We left with some new knowledge of Mexican food and flavours and have been confidently making our own tortillas ! Thank you both for a wonderful addition to our vacation!

    Great Introduction to Bucerias and Mariscos!
    Edgar and Carmen were amazing hosts and guided our group through the streets of Bucerias, introducing us to local seafood dishes and restaurants. From Marlin tacos, to empenadas to fresh ceviche, we had a nice sampling of Mexican fare and insightful tips into the local culture. We would recommend to anyone looking for a great way to spend some time, getting to know Bucerias in a more intimate way.

    Simply The Best!
    As Tina sings, "It's simply the best". Our group of 2 couples had each been with Travis and Edgar and Anna before. We agree totally with all of the accolades given in the other reviews. If anyone didn't have the highest praise for these creative CHEFS, please don't rebook so that someone else who knows and appreciates Michelin level cooking can take the class.

    Bucerias, Our Favourite Place
    We arrived in Puerto Vallarta and used the overpass to the other side of the hwy to take a less expensive cab to Bucerias. Arrived early evening at our Condo, Casa Victoria. It lived up to all our expectations. Centrally located, very spacious and with a well appointed kitchen. Beds were also very comfortable. The pool was excellent and we loved the pool area. Lots of seating and BBQ's. It was quiet and very relaxing. Highly recommend Karen's for either lunch or dinner or just drinks during happy hour. It's our go to place. Grocery store is easy walking distance and for a treat try taking the bus to La Cormer. It's a visual delight shopping there. Next time we will try Mega. We only had a week so it was spent mostly relaxing around the pool. We did go to the Luna Lounge for an excellent meal and show, Rod Stewart Tribute. Get tickets early as they sell out it's that good. Sunday market at La Cruz is a great way to spend a Sunday. Lots to see and buy. Take the local bus to La Cruz and tell the driver you are going to the market. This was our 3rd time there and already making plans for next year!

    'My Mexican Kitchen' a MUST in Bucerios ******
    Personally, my fourth cooking lesson with Travis and Edgar. They just keep getting better and better!! We had the pleasure of experiencing the amazing flavours of Mexico and learned how we can replicate them at home. The lessons were fun, interactive and came with knowledge of the history, culture and traditions of each region and the meals they prepare. Very affordable and worth every peso! Do It! Bucerios is a really fun place to do this. They also offer food tours so we signed up for the restaurant tour on the "Mexico side" of town. Edgar said, "Any place you see a lot of Mexicans sitting to eat a meal, you know the food is good there" He was 100% correct. Such a delicious way to tour:)

    Fabulous food tour!
    This walking tour exceeded our expectations in all regards. Our 2 tour leaders were informative, knowledgable, welcoming, entertaining … and were clearly passionate about teaching us about Mexican culture and the food that is so much a part of it. Thank you Carmen and Edgar!

Spending an evening with a Travis and Edgar was like spending an evening with good friends. We were delighted to have such an authentic hands on Mexican experience in an intimate setting. They are truly lovely hosts and accomplished chefs and teachers. The food was wonderful. We will be back again to try something new.

We invited My Mexican Kitchen to our condo in Bucerias to cook for a group of 12. Travis and Edgar were amazing. They brought all of the fresh ingredients and all of the pots, pans, etc. We supplied the plates and silverware.

We had an amazing 5 course meal which was the best food I have ever eaten. The portions were appropriate so that we could eat all of the food, but we were also very full at the same time. We will definitely be booking with them next year for several guests that we will be hosting.

Thank you Travis and Edgar for making our evening so special! All of the guests raved about the event!

My Mexican Kitchen offers walking food tours in Bicerias Mexico. My wife and I took the seafood tour. Tasting food from little gem local restaurants where locals enjoy simple home cooked meals. There called " holes in the wall". From home made tacos, handmade tortillas,ceviche,fresh fruit drinks etc. Wonderful taste experience and a chance to enjoy local food,rather than the fancy or tourist type restaurants. And the owners are so friendly and hard working.
The guides are knowledgable,local and take pride in their culture and their job.
The cost was 60usd/pp and took us on a 3 hr walking tour.
Simply outstanding!!!!

Our catered meal was sensitive to any food allergies, preferences and Travis & Edgar even paid special attention to the children’s needs. They executed a very professional prep, serving and clean up and left our kitchen cleaner than when they arrived
So grateful to my Mexican kitchen.com

We cannot say enough about our evening cooking class with Travis and Edgar! The food was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed learning about Mexican cuisine and food culture. We participated in the class toward the end of our time in Mexico and really wish we had have done so earlier - we would have been much more confident ordering and enjoying Mexican food with the knowledge gained at the class. We contacted Travis and Edgar after the class for a suggestion for a seafood meal in Bucerias and they gave a wonderful recommendation.
We thoroughly recommend My Mexican Kitchen classes and will enjoy another class or food tour when we are in Bucerias next.
