We had a wonderful time. My family has been traveling to Cancun for 30 years and we have done every tourist thing there is. This was really fun, wonderful food, warm hosts. Informative and interesting. I would recommend this outing. This was a family trip, would also be fun with friends. Would not recommend for small children.

My last minute decision to go to Can Cook in Cancun paid off wonderfully! Six of us shared a delicious welcome of Cafe de Olla and churros. Then we learned about the different specialties of Mexican States near the Yucatan, but the class itself was based on Mayan cooking. We had a lot of fun preparing the different sauces, tacos,...

This outstanding hands on cooking instruction class is by far one of the most enjoyable outings that we have found. Not only will you revive hands on instruction, but you also... More

My husband and I took this class in August 2013. The class was amazing. We learned to cook many traditional recipes. The tamales in banana leaves were awesome. Also the many salsas were good. We came home and made a pork dish in banana leaves. It was great and we were proud of our cooking abilities. We live in Oklahoma... More
