Food is an important part of any vacation. And in Mexico, a number of resort hotels have upped the ante with culinary offerings that go well beyond the basics to create what is best described as an all-encompassing taste experience.
Farther south, at Mayakoba, the upscale resort development, El Pueblito Cooking School, offers culinary experiences that also teach visitors about culture and centuries-old Mayan techniques. A Mayan cook teaches guests how to make traditional dishes such as cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork), and guests can also join a shopping trip with the chef to a Mexican market.
