This is case of looking above and beyond the original need when looking at any space. Upon arriving in Mayaoba the space which is now a Cooking School was approved as a Satelite kitchen for the hotels to use when catering to events at El Pueblito. My idea – come up with a Kitchen that could fulfill 2 functions the literal kill 2 birds with one stone! – a cooking school and a classy one at that while also having the felxibilty to function as a satellite kitchen – thus El Pueblito cooking school is born.

Set in El Pueblito this professionally set up cooking school can hold a máximum of 12 students at a time each with their own private working área is the latest member of El Pueblito Family. A dynamic calender of Classes ranging from one of sessions to more complete 3 day classes with guest Chefs offers the Culinary lover yet another unique experience in Mayakoba.

One of my favourite sessions are the afternoon cooking classes followed by Dinner with my classmates on the Terrace of the Cooking School. While the principal focus is on Mexican cuisine the talented group of guests Chefs from around the globe offer students a unique and wide arrange of learning opportunites. So should you wish to hone in on your culinary skills during your holiday or organize a great team building event for your group our Cooking School offers the perfect setting. For the full calender of classes and special events visit for the full calender. A special thanks to Diane Dimeo who curated the project from the outset.
