Guatemala Culinary Shore Excursion Itinerary

Our shore excursion starts with an early pick-up at Puerto Quetzal for 1.5 hrs. Then, transfer to Antigua Guatemala, directly to the market, where we will pick just fresh and high-quality products and get involved in the bargaining process when buying the groceries. Then, continue to our extraordinary kitchen in Jocotenango village, about 10 minutes from Antigua Guatemala.

The experience starts with the description of the products we will use to prepare the typical dish. Some options are Pepian, Kaq Ik, Suban-Ik, rice, and delicious desserts such as mole, rellenitos, or Ayote. Recipes that come from generation to generation are still part of our identity and culture.

Today you are also a chef; let yourself go and feel like an expert Guatemalan chef helping to create the typical dish, either chopping the vegetables, stirring the boiling mix of chicken with spices, making tortillas, or just enjoying a delicious glass of wine, the professionals will guide you to have the final product we want.

Now, the food is ready to be served in clay bowls created by local artisans, and feel satisfied that you have completed your first typical dish with your own hands.

After lunch, we are moving back to the center of Antigua for short sightseeing of Antigua Guatemala.

In this city, the stories and legends of the colonial times are still present along with the old paved streets; visit Central Park and the Cathedral Church. In the end, stop by the Jade Shop.

In Guatemala, we have a variety of colors of this precious mineral. Being the most outstanding Lavanda, black, jaguar green, and imperial green, these fantastic shades, make the jade a nation proud.

After the culinary shore excursion, transfer back to Puerto Quetzal on time for your set sail.
