Outstanding!

This was by far the best experience we had in Antigua. Our guide met us as arranged and took us on a brief tour/overview of the town square of Parramos before heading to a local family's home. There, we met the family matriarch, who explained what we would be cooking. Throughout the afternoon, we were free to ask many questions about her life and the way of life of other indigenous people in the area. Throughout this time our guide interpreted for us as needed. When the meal was finished cooking, we all sat down and enjoyed the best meal we've had in all of Central America! Highly Recommend!

Cooking with a local family
Buffy_P
, Mar. 2022
This really was a worthwhile experience. Our tour guide/translator was wonderful communicating where to meet us. I originally did not realize it was in a neighboring community I thought it was in Antigua. But was a short $5 Uber ride away. We met our tour guide, he was wonderful and friendly. I thought we would tour the town or a market but we went directly to the home where we would make dinner. Be prepared and I do not mean this in a negative way but you are making dinner in the home of a local Guatemalan family. The poverty is staggering. They are wonderful welcoming and kind. I felt somewhat uncomfortable however that may simply be my own guilt/privledge/fear of exploiting a family. We made an absolutely wonderful meal. However again uncomfortable knowing there was a multi generational family living there and only we were sitting to eat this meal normally reserved for weddings and special occasions. I left a hefty tip as I did with all my experiences in Guatemala. Every time I was able to put money directly into the hands of the local people I did. Overall I recommend. Have the right mindset and necessary conversations with families/children prior to the experience. My kids having traveled throughout Latin America were unfazed.

We know that poverty is a great scourge in our society, we work with community tourism and based on principles of equality, to reduce the poverty gap, we work with different families and we are a source of decent work for these people, especially housewives. home, they need a source of income. Thank you for your comment, we believe in a project that helps and at the same time shows a Guatemalan reality that you will hardly find in other companies. Once again thanks to your reservation we can be the engine of change in our society.

Amazing Experience

This class exceeded my groups expectations. We spent 3 hours with Janeth learning about her and working alongside her to cut vegetables, roast peppers over a wood stove, skin the chicken, make tortillas and more. The translator was thorough and we were able to ask all kinds of questions. We even had a short tour of the town square and market before the class.

For us it is a happiness to share our culture, gastronomy, experience, but above all to share life experiences with our visitors, we work to empower women and make them feel proud of what they do. Thanks for helping us improve, we hope you come back soon

It was such a delightful experience. To get to know the family, to see how to cook a traditional dish, and of course to share it. The family was wonderful.

AMAZING FOOD AMAZING EXPERIENCE AMAZING PEOPLE!

This tour was amazing!!! I asked so many questions before the tour even started and I booked last minute but they were able to accommodate me. When I arrived, I was greeted promptly by Delmy, she's so sweet! We had a short walk from the park and went to Cristina's house to cook. I was a little late but they were happy to see me. We cooked for about 2 hours and I learned how to make vegetarian pepian and the culture and history behind the dish-I even learned how to make tortillas! We also made hibiscus tea. After we set the table and exchanged stories and I learned more about Guatemalan culture and their daily lives. This was such a memorable experience and these are the most kind, hard working and thoughtful people you'll meet in Guatemala. I'D HIGHLY RECOMMEND DOING THIS WORKSHOP!

Best Mayan cooking class authentic village of Paramos by antigua
Annika_S
, Jan. 2020
If you want a truly authentic non-touristy Guatemalan experience this is it. This small local company aims at keeping local culture alive via small scale tourism In the form of cooking classes, coffee plantation tours, textile and market tours etc etc...These people live in the small town of Paremos nearby Antigua and the money goes back to this local community. My experience was a cooking class. The owner herself came to Antigua to pick me up and together we went via “chicken bus” for half an hour to her hometown Paremos. In this very typical small Guatemalan town where not even one tourist could be found I took a cooking class at her friends house. Her friend of Mayan heritage and her daughter demonstrated, and I was able to participate as much as I wanted, how to prepare this very tasty low-fat chicken/veggie stew. Making handmade tortillas Guatemalan style was also a lot of fun. Everything was purchased at the local farmers market, filtered water used for hibiscus tea, and a wood fired stove was used to prepare the meal which was later served on traditional clay dishes. A typical Sunday family dinner or wedding meal I was told. If you are someone who normally enjoy chain restaurants/hotels and are comfortable with the overpriced tourist restaurants in the town of Antigua where local people can not afford eating this is maybe not for you but if you want a slice of the “real Guatemala” in the setting of an authentic family home then this is the best experience you can find around Antigua. I should add that the price is the best you’ll find as well. Thank you B1 Experience for a wonderful day.
