We had an amazing day with Carlos and Roberto! Both of these men know a lot about tequila and Mexican food! We learned how to make some of Roberto’s family recipes and tried many kinds of tequila. This is an excursion worth taking!

This was a magical experience. Definitely recommend arriving to the meet up place ON TIME (the address listed on the experience), as it’s a whole other journey up a mountain to the villa. Once we got there it was stunning. The group we cooked with was a blast and Carlos was a joker. The sunset and setting was gorgeous and Carlos was kind to accommodate vegetarian and pescatarian dietary restrictions.
