    What to Expect
    Receive a morning pickup from your Cartagena hotel or cruise port. Depending on whether you’ve selected the optional 1-hour market visit, you’ll either begin by shopping for ingredients, or head straight to your cooking session.

    Those guests that pick the market visit will get a sneak peek into the authentic culture of Cartagena, stopping to explore the wild variety of vegetables, traditional cooking, local fish, and more for sale at this free-wheeling center of Colombian commerce. You’ll also help your host as they bargain for ingredients to be used in your cooking lesson, and enjoy the lively atmosphere of live music from the bands that typically set up at the center.

    Following your market visit, proceed to the fishing village of La Boquilla, where you’ll begin your cooking session in the home of a local family. Learn the traditions, techniques, and recipes behind the cuisine of Colombia’s Caribbean coast from your chef host. Depending on the day and the foodstuffs procured at the market you’ll learn to prepare dishes such as fried fish, coconut rice, fried green plantains, ceviche, lobster, shrimp, and green salad.

    Enjoy your tasty meal accompanied by lively conversation with your hosts before receiving a ride back to Cartagena, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel or cruise ship.

    Sounded better than it was. A basic walk through the market, then back to a private home to watch the husband/wife team cook up the ingredients purchased for lunch. Not much to learn in terms of cooking techniques but very pleasant conversation with a local...More
