"Perfect for the solo cook!"
Jon and Estalla have created a wonderful experience for an individual or for small group - I'd love to come back for a girls week! Casa Carmelita is safe, the instruction/cooking is straightforward and the resulting food delicious and actually very healthy. Jon was very helpful in organizing afternoon trips; there is a lot to see in Tlaxcala and surrounding areas and not very many tourists. The property is really beautiful, quiet and very secure. As a solo female traveler, I never felt at risk at any time. The driver (Jose) who picked the guests up at the airport was very nice and spoke a little English, and although our drive ended up as a bit of an adventure (the toll road was closed, turning a 90 minute drive into a 3 hour one), at no point did it feel unsafe and we were in constant communication with Jon. The cooking lessons are hands on and you will eat what you cooked for lunch and dinner (along with margartias or other drinks to your liking). I highly recommend this trip to anyone who has an interest in authenic Mexican cooking and is looking for something a bit off the beaten path.
