Make your own Mexican street tacos by learning homemade recipes of some of the best street tacos in town, including Taco al Pastor, Taco de Barbacoa and Taco Campechano, that you can replicate back home. Enjoy a market tour (in the morning class) and a full lunch in an intimate cooking studio.

Join Local Guide Graciela for a customized experience where you’ll immerse yourself in the Mexican culture. You will start with a quick introduction to Mexican ingredients and food history, followed by a hands-on cooking class, and finish with a delicious drink and dessert.
