Ana Garcia is one of the most vivacious traditional Mexican chefs and teachers in Mexico today. The inspiration for Chef Ana’s recipes and hospitality grow out of her long, rich family history in central and northern Mexico. She has taken this extensive knowledge and incorporated it into a culinary repertoire that includes traditional central and northern Mexican specialties, as well as nouvelle Mexican cuisine using traditional ingredients in new and gastronomically adventurous ways.
The vacation will take place in Tepoztlan, Mexico. Tepoztlan, a “Pueblos Magicos” (magic village) and one of Mexico’s most unique destinations is located about 5,280 feet above the sea level and roughly one hour 15 minutes south of Mexico City making transportation easy. Tepoztlan is a year-round destination where award-winning packages take place in the specially-designed culinary hotel of La Villa Bonita.
Tepoztlan is made up of stubborn townspeople and subsistence farmers who vigilantly guard their traditions from the change which makes it an ideal destination for the “foodie” and the traveler seeks to experience a rich culture. “Tepoztecos,” as they are known here, appreciate the foreign tourist because you appreciate their culture. You can walk anywhere day or night and people will say “hello” to you, be cordial, but not overburdening.
This magic village with its mystical vibe is known as the “Sedona of Mexico” and consists of a very small, tight-knit community where people are very content with their lifestyle, a full social calendar that consists of constant cultural events, celebrations, and festivals during both the week and weekend. While the media tends to paint Mexico with broad strokes without definition, Tepoztlan is a piece of art without comparison, exquisite but not commercial.
In Tepoztlan, you will hear the enveloping sounds of the community, the church bells, the rooster crowing, the occasional fire-cracker, and the music wafting through the valley.
La Villa Bonita is located on the upslope of the Tepozteco mountains with a privileged perch above the town and an incredible view of the content below. They are a 15-minute walk to the central downtown circuit so there is not an excessive amount of traffic in front of La Villa Bonita but they are just steps away from the Centro and Zocalo.
You will taste Chef Ana’s famous home-made breakfast every morning with biscuits made from scratch, locally made pastries, home-made jams and jellies, a different main breakfast dish every morning, fresh fruit of the season, coffee and fresh juice, yogurt, and granola. Daily breakfast, cocktail and appetizers upon arrival, and lunches of dishes prepared are included in the prices.
