  • Alejandra Kauachi

    Chef Alejandra Kauachi is passionate for Mexico, her culture, food, fiestas, holidays, and celebrations. She thinks she was born in a kitchen, so the decision of being a cook was natural. Her two grandmas were amazing cooks, who taught her a lot of Mexico's traditions. She grew up helping them and enjoying spices, scents, and amazing flavors. With that, she decided to study culinary arts in Mexico City. She has been everywhere in the food industry, but where she really felt complete is in a classroom, sharing with her guests.

During this culinary vacation, you will stay at a Mexican traditional boutique hotel located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, at the 5th Avenue. You may walk along the avenue and find a lot of shops and places, restaurants, and shopping malls.
