    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will have a better perception about Guatemala by doing the cooking class, and also learn about Antigua and things to do around the area, with the market tour you will learn about fresh vegetables and fruits that are on season, if you are learning spanish this is a great way you can use those skills during the class to practice as well.

    Los turistas tendran una mejor persepcion de la cultura de Guatemala y aprenderan sobre los alrededores de Antigua, haciendo el tour de mercado es bueno para aprender de las verduras y frutas que tenemos en temporada. Si estan aprendiendo español en la escuela, te puede ayudar para poner en practica lo aprendido en las clases de cocina

Depending on your abilities, we have extra things that you could do for us like communication duties (share flyers around the beautify Antigua explaining what our cooking school is), and other responsibilities. Normally our clients leave a lot of tip when they enjoy the classes. Tips will depend on the service you provide to the clients. We have a great, fun and friendly team to work with.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    La Antigua Guatemala was the colonial Spanish capital of Central America. It is a World Heritage site, and is perhaps the most popular tourist destination in Guatemala.

    The whole city is full of historic buildings, monuments, fountains and ruins. This city was founded by the Spanish in the XVII Century, and it follows the traditional design of a Main Plaza surrounded by Government and Catholic Church buildings. It's worthwhile to visit La Catedral, el Palacio de los Gobernadores, Convento de Capuchinas, Convento de Santa Clara, el Arco de Santa Catarina, Iglesia La Merced and the Handcrafts Market
