We will start in Villahermosa where we will learn about the Tabasqueña cuisine and dine in restaurants around this lively, interesting city. We will then proceed to Comalcalco, Tabasco to visit a cacao plantation, tour the ruins and to do some cooking. The Cacao Fiesta San Isidro de Labrador is an all night affair and will be a chocolate lover's delight. After another day in Villahermosa touring the Mercado we will move on to Tuxtla Gutirrez, Chiapas and an exciting boat ride in the Cañon de Sumidero.
San Cristobal de las Casas will be our base for several days in southern Chiapas where we will enjoy this beautiful colonial city and visit several indigenous villages in the surrounding hill country and cook with the locals. We will then proceed north through central Chiapas with a stop in Ocosingo, known as Los Quesos, to learn about the artisan cheeses produced there and to visit the Maya ruins of Tonina. We finish up in Palenque, one of the largest and most well known Maya ruins where you will have the option to visit other ruins deep in the jungle along the Guatemala border. Enjoy an experience with a tour leader who will lend her expertise and passion for Mexican cooking and culture to this unique experience.
