In the capital city of Merida, we stay in a hacienda for several days. We will study the traditional foods and cooking techniques with various chefs, visit markets, swim, watch artists making beautiful handicrafts and best of all, taste the various foods of the region in many different restaurants and market stalls. We will also visit the eco-paradise of Celestun to look at the many species of birds including the exotic pink flamingos. On the beach we will learn the pibil style of cooking with fish.
Along the Mayan Puuc Route, we visit many villages, caves and cenotes, the sacred cooling waters of the Yucatán, and are guided through the ages of history at various archaeological sites ending in Uxmal. In Campeche, we will cook with local friends, eat seafood specialties and have a food tasting in a very popular restaurant. We end the tour by taking the ferry to the island of Holbox, Quintana Roo where we will fish, cook, bird watch, relax and enjoy our final days on the beach in this charming undiscovered gem in the Caribbean.
