Mexican Home Cooking School teaches Traditional Cuisine from the city of Puebla. We are passing on recipes and traditions that are quickly getting lost as Mexico becomes a 1st world country. Our dishes are family recipes not found in restaurante environments and our classes are small, hands on and limited to 6 students. We offer an intimate culinary retreat unique in Mexico. We located at "Casa Carmelita" a private compound in the country side 15 min outside of the city of Tlaxcala. The main house is a comfortable "hacienda" style home. There is one large double accommodation with private patio, one 2 room suite and a private detached stone cottage with private garden. All accommodations have a private entrance, en-suite bath and fireplace. It rural lake side setting with, with private gardens, fountains and surrounded by 3 volcanoes.

we are making a motor trip down your way. Want to visit Puebla and Tlax. We would require a double bed, not really interested in the cooking school. What are your prices, please , per night. Do you include breakfast.
