A Cultural and Culinary Wonder: Ka'ana's Maya Cooking Class
At Ka'ana, we are proud to offer a wide selection of extraordinary experiences for our guests. With our property at the doorstep of ancient Maya cities and rich cultural heritage, we find it imperative to include this narrative in our experiential offerings.
Along with thrill-seeking adventures and wildlife excursions, expand your horizons and explore the wondrous world of the Maya with an interactive Maya Cooking Class hosted right on our property! Bringing the very best of history, culture, and cuisine, our Maya Cooking Class is an experience that seamlessly showcases our love for authentic and local.
Authentic and Awe-Inspiring
Hosted by local Maya women from neighboring village, San Jose Succotz, the Maya Cooking Class is an interactive session that explores the many traditional practices and staple ingredients used by the Maya. Learn to prepare corn, turning it to "masa" (dough), and then cook it like an expert on the "comal" (stone or clay griddle for baking)! In our own Maya hut overlooking the tropical rainforest, you'll hear stories about the daily lives of the Maya women and learn from the experience and knowledge they share that have been passed down for generations.
When the "fogon" (fire hearth) has finally done its job, you'll enjoy the dishes you've prepared with a greater sense of understanding as to how each flavor blends together and how the traditional cooking practices make a difference in creating the delicious dishes. Enjoy authentic Maya dishes such as caldo, corn tortillas, tamales, and more!
Vibrant and flavorful, this experience is a hands-on experience with the rich Maya heritage and delicious culinary delights.
