Stop reading this and BOOK this amazing experience! It was beyond fun! We met so many fun people at our cooking class, and Carlos/his team made it so entertaining, fun and educating. The margaritas kept flowing and we made some of the best dishes I’ve had in PV (I’ve been coming here for 5 years). The villa is beyond beautiful and has views that you could stare at for days. It especially looked beautiful at sunset. Lots of great photo ops. Huge thanks so Carlo and his amazing team!

From the moment we stepped out of the car and into this enchanted paradise we knew it was going to be perfect. Roberto and his familia taught us how to make authentic Mexican dishes. It was not only educational but funny as well. Making homemade salsa knowing how to “build” the flavors one at a time. At the end of the evening Roberto demonstrated the proper way to enjoy tequila and with a final toast included us as familia. I’m glad to be a part of this family and look forward to another adventure.

This was an incredible experience and a MUST for anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta. Roberto was an incredible host and made this trip so much fun. From the time we met up with him to the time our trip ended, we had a blast with him and he kept us laughing the entire time. Roberto did an excellent job explaining the cooking and history behind the food. The view at la dulce vista is truly amazing overlooking puerto Vallarta. The food was awesome as well. The whole experience was so great and we already miss Roberto and his team. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique and incredible experience.

I’ve always wanted to take a cooking class but never had the time to partake on the trips I’ve been on. When I saw this class during my extended stay in Puerto Vallarta, I immediately booked it. I wasn’t sure what to expect but this experience surpassed anything that I could have thought up myself. We were lucky enough to have Roberto as our chef and the fun experience began from the moment he arrived when he picked us up in his zebra car. From there everything got better and better. From the winding drive up to the mountain, to pulling up to a beautiful villa, the breathtaking views, instragramable locations, the pups on the property, and the margaritas- everything was magical. And we hadn’t even gotten to the cooking yet. There is so much love and passion and art that Roberto brings to the table when cooking and he tells stories about origins and his own personal path with food. It was such a personalized experience and didn’t feel like a normal tour/experience that you take elsewhere. This was different in the sense that it was all done out of love. Food is from the heart and you feel that through every part of the class. If you stay in PV- please take this class. It’s so worth it and it’s so fun and you get SO much value for what you are paying. And when I tell you that there is one surprise after another up until the very end- it is not an exaggeration. We came to Roberto as tourists and students, but we left as family. Do not miss this opportunity. Side note: * please bring enough cash on you to tip the guides and assistants.

Our host and chef Roberto was the man! Although the journey up is a little bumpy, he takes his time to make it an enjoyable ride up the mountain to an incredible 1000 ft vista overlooking banderas bay. I was with my girlfriend and we had the entire villa to ourselves, which made for a magical experience with delicious fresh Mexican classic dishes we can now take back with us to impress our friends. Thanks Roberto and Carlos for an amazing experience!
