The Agroecology Bike & Hike Experience consists of a 30 minutes ride to Parque Natural ENCUENTRO. This is a 140 hectare reserve where we will visit a river, a water spring, a sedimentation lagoon and we will have an amazing view over San Cristóbal. In the park we visit COLECTIVO LAS ABEJAS, agroecological project LA COLMENA,
We will learn how to harvest and make our own meal! During the experience in the park we are surrounded by pine and oak forest.
Don't miss out on this awesome opportunity to go to this special place in the middle of the nature but still only 30 minutes from down town!
Mexican Cooking: “El Tzitz” specializes in Mexican cooking classes with an emphasis on local produce, local varieties and specialties. Irma López, the main cook, takes pride in her cooking that she has developed over the years, continuously changing and adjusting her recipes to accommodate the seasons and local flavors. The cooking classes take place in a beautiful home in the oldest part of San Cristóbal de las Casas, close to down town, close to the main market but an oasis of beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces overlooking the town.
Whether you would like to learn about the typical, local cooking or just spend some hours in a beautiful setting, preparing and eating great food, this is the place for you. Group classes are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12 to 3 pm. The first person who
signs up determines the menu of the day. There is an optional tour to the market prior to the classes, starting at 10.30am.
If you would like to have classes on other days or times, individual classes or a particular menu, please contact us.
