What people are saying about San Jose del Cabo

Overall it was an amazing experience. From the start we could see that Chef Fransisco was knowledgeable in his field. He showed us how to pick the most fresh produce and meat for the recipe that day. He took us to his house and was very hospitable. We learnt how to make a classic margarita from scratch and drank a few of those which certainly elevated the experience lol. Having worked in a restaurant for a few years I was impressed with his instructional techniques and how easy he made it for us. The food spoke for itself. It was delicious and had the entire group munching away silently. Definitely recommend this activity if you're visiting San Jose del Cabo.

My Wife & I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure! The hospitality from our guide whom drove us round trip to the Boat Captain and Snorkeling guide, all were helpful, informative and patient! Water was clear so coral was vibrant, sea life was plentiful to the point we even saw a Sea Turtle! Our Guide Carlos and Captain Gato even took us to see a school of Big Eyed Jack which was intense with the large swells, but not once did we feel unsafe! Locals even fed us food after, which hit the spot!!! Bring plently of cash to tip!!! Incredible experience

What an amazing tour opportunity! Not only was the food amazing but our guide, Gilberto Herrera, was EXCEPTIONAL. He is very knowledgeable in the history of the area and has a wonderful personality. He explained about the historic buildings and the different types of food. All around a great way to spend a few hours.

It was just my partner and I so a very intimate class- lots of chatting and sharing of cooking histories in our respective countries, lots of laughter, drinks and delicious food! We even got to sample items from their lunch buffet in addition to our heavenly grilled prawns. Would definitely do it again!

Gilbert was our guide. He was excellent. We really enjoyed all of the different sea life we were able to see.
