Luis and Laura hosted us today in Merida showing us how to make shop and then cook grey Mayan cuisine. That Lemon soup was just outstanding!! But it was more than their kind hospitalilty and insight - interesting other participants added their flavor and it just ended up as a great half day. Would do the same event everywhere I travel.

A group of us were met by Luis for an early start to the local food market. This was a truly local market and through Luis' kind attention and patience, we learned much of the local delicacies . We hopped on a local bus together and headed to Luis and his wife's beautiful home. We were made to feel so welcome, it was like going to a good friend's home for lunch. We were given a real insight into how a young Meridan family live. Luis and his wife had us chopping and slicing (whilst drinking hibiscus tea and listening to Santana). Once the meal was cooked we all joined in for a fabulous home cooked Mexican meal. Luis and his wife were so very hospitable, they made my stay in Merida very special

We had a great morning of fun with George who showed us the local market in Merida and was very nice and patient answering all our questions about Mexican food or Mexican life in general!!! Then we went to a local home where we had a wonderful experience cooking and enjoying our delicious meal!!!! Definitely a must-do in Merida!!

The company responded quickly to our emails that we sent between flights on our way to Merida and we were able to line up a tour for the morning after we arrived. We hit the ground running as we meet to start our 9:30 am tour. George was an enthusiastic guide and we were able to get a quick lay of the land near the Gran Plaza and toured a market that we might have bypassed. We found out something about eggs that we had never know before!! We took a short bus ride to Laura's home and Laura and George assisted us in preparing a wonderful Yucatan lunch where we had time to learn and ask more questions.

I was here at Carnival time and I must say that despite the crowds (which which I usually don't do well) the people, both locals and tourists, were incredibly well-behaved and just lovely to interact with.
