Don’t miss this tour. Come hungry, leave happy - Douglas

Loved this tour. Got picked up at my hotel and headed to four different spots to try local cuisine and beverages. Diego R was extremely knowledgeable about each spot, the family that runs the restaurant, and the ingredients of the food. No joke, this guy really should have his own show on the food network based on his expansive knowledge of food and overall charismatic personality. I wish I was in Cancun longer to try out the cooking class.

Excellent tour; good food; nice way to get out of Cancun tourist bubble - Oregondollar

Pepe led a great street food tour. Perfect way to see a little bit more of authentic Mexico in a tourism-only town (Cancun). Ate great food and learned about culture through our stops. His English was excellent. We've been on probably 15+ food tours around the world; this one easily held its own considering Cancun is not a cultural mecca.
