Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your 4-hour culinary experience with pickup from your Cartagena hotel or a pre-arranged meeting point downtown.

    Transfer to a local open-air market to meet your chef/instructor. Peruse the market for ingredients you'll use to make the day's dishes. Immerse yourself in the colors, smells and tastes of the bustling local market, learn how locals shop for their daily produce and cooking supplies. Taste exotic fruit juices and fried snacks such as papa rellena, carmanola and arepae'huevo.

    Once you've collected the necessary ingredients, proceed to the local family's kitchen, in a house located just outside the Centro Historico. Together, prepare the dishes under the chef's direction, then sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

    Get convenient drop-off back at your hotel or in downtown Cartagena after the class.

    We did only the Bazurto Market tour, then stopped at his home for a coffee & a quick lesson on making coconut rice. The market is one of the highlights of Cartagena & should be done with a guide. We were 4 people & Duran Duran was excellent. Highly recommend.

    Cartagena is always ready to surprise in different ways. Cartagena is excelent local food, history, literature, dancing and a lot more. A wise advice is to be guided by Trip Advisor and always keep in mind the first 5 positions in each activity. It is also important that before scheduling a service, you know the name of the guide, his or her professional card number and his or her RNT number. Tourisim registration number.
