We have many surprises in store for our new familia members, we will: sing, tell stories of our host growing up in Mexico, make jokes, we will make a toast with tequila!

Overall, we had a fun time at this cooking class. However, the margaritas are not really margaritas at all and the food was ok. Some general notes: - Margaritas are made with Squirt soda and tequila. They did not taste good (but were all you could drink) - The salsa we made was the highlight of the afternoon. It was fun making it in the mortar and pestle. - The tostadas were tasty and enchiladas were ok. - Roberto (the host) was fun and you can tell he really tries to make it an entertaining experience for all. But his energy is A LOT — just good to know going into the experience.

This is a must! Roberto was energetic and fun. The trip from Vallarta was an exciting experience through rural town and dirt mountain road. The Hacienda is tucked away in the rainforest and absolutely breath taking. The food was out of this world (I can't believe I-mostly- made it)!! There were many exciting surprises during the class and lots of food and relaxation.

My 2nd time through the experience and I would definitely do it again. Roberto is wonderful and has great stories and history to accentuate his cooking. The staff is also very accomodating.

This is definitely "a beautiful view" experience - the property is gorgeous and comfortable. The cooking experience was great - tons of food to cook and taste. I learned a lot and my family and I had enjoyable time.

Roberto is a great host and will add so much to your experience. If you are in Puerto Vallarta you need to do this. It is fun, delicious and opportunity to create new memories with new dear friends. Viva la Mexico y Viva la Vida!

Wow. I wish I could put into words how special this experience was. Roberto showed us some incredible recipes in an amazing location and treated us like family. The views were unparalleled and the whole day was beyond magical. Great stories, history, and recommendations as well. Do yourself a favor and book this!
