What to Expect What to Expect

Pick up from your hotel in Guatemala City will be at 8:30am. Your guide will take you to the Antigua street market to take a 2-hour tour where you can see and smell the ingredients used for Guatemalan cooking. After your market tour you will return to the kitchen to begin your cooking class.
After a brief kitchen safety overview, your expert chef will start by teaching you about the Spanish and Mayan cultural influences on Guatemalan flavors. Learn about the staple ingredients and foods used by natives, including corn, peppers and beans. For your own meal, you’ll get to prepare one main dish, such as hilachas or tamales, two side dishes and one dessert, including camote en dulce or rellenitos.
As you create your meal, the chef will be there to offer helpful guidance. Once you’re done, it’s time to enjoy your home-cooked lunch!
In the afternoon visit to the Choco Museo (Chocolate Museum). We invite you to make your own chocolate! During this 2-hour visit you will learn all the steps from the harvest of the cacao in a plantation to the chocolate bar. From the cacao beans you will roast them, peel them, and grind them into a paste. This cacao paste is used to prepare the first known cacao drink (invented by the Mayas), the traditional chocolate. In the end, from refined chocolate you will prepare your own chocolate that you can take back home.
Transportation back to your hotel in Guatemala City will be at 4:30pm.

The cooking class was so much fun! We took it at the La Tortilla Cooking School, we were taught by Sonia. The class had a translator and it was very throughly explained. Each person had their own little set up of a peeler, towel, and a knife and cutting board. They gave us a glass to have some wine. It was such a relaxing experience.

Prior to the class, a man named Jorge took us around the market, explained to us the history and the culture of the market. He explained how the produce gets to the market, how the produce is grown, he even protected us from getting a little hustled lol. He was such a pleasure to talk too. He even explained to us about the foods and areas tourists should avoid. For example, he warned us that the fried chicken in the markets should not be consumed, as the pork fat used in the chicken may not sit well with many tourists' stomachs.

The chocolate museum was also fun! We got to make our own chocolates and traditional drinks. I recommend this for anyone looking for some fun and easy things to do in Antigua.

One super added bonus to this package was that our driver Henry even drove us to a peak where we could overlook Antigua and he drove us back to the market and waited for us! He was so gracious!! He really made our experience even better.
