We greatly enjoyed our experience learning to cook Guatemalan food here. The staff was so friendly and engaging. The instruction was clear. We had hands on experiences and the food we got to enjoy at the end was the best we had on our trip.

I think I paid all in all 150 GTQ. That's about 19 €. It's a good price. Food and vine incl. And a fantastic opportunity to meet really nice guatemalian people and learn about their culture.
