Learning to cook traditional Guatemalan dishes in a small setting was a great way to spend a morning. Helpful friendly staff and enjoying the cooked dish was truly memorable.
This was a wonderful experience in every way. Great for all ages and cooking skills. Truly one of the highlights of our entire trip.
Great time for everyone, with plenty of wine, beer and coffee to go around. A special way to enjoy an afternoon in historic Atigua.
