You can book this tour with confidence, knowing all of our hosts are thoroughly vetted before receiving permission to welcome guests into their homes.

So often in life we accept customs as they are without considering the WHY. This tour will discuss the origins of Mexican culinary traditions with an extremely knowledgeable teacher. You might want to come prepared with questions.

From the moment you meet your host at the local market, this will be a day devoted to fun, historical perspective and deliciousness. Stroll the aisles of the market to choose the best seasonal and dried ingredients to later transform into traditional Mexican favorites.

From the market, a short taxi ride will give you a chance to get to know your host. In the blink of an eye you will arrive at her traditional-style home, a lovely spot, complete with all the amenities needed to prepare family recipes. As you work together, your host will guide you through the process of creating traditional recipes, handed down through the generations. In addition, this creative chef will add her own special touches for a contemporary flair. If you prefer, let your host demonstrate as you sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

And now, the moment you've been waiting's time to sit down with your host and enjoy the fruits of your labors. Whether it's chilis, peppers, soups, cactus or moles, your taste buds will be delighted. Pace yourself, there's dessert coming, either a traditional flan or rice pudding.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
