A Taste of Mexico
A Taste of Mexico
Walk along the scenic, main boardwalk of Ensenada known as Ventana al Mar, the Flag Square, and see what makes this city, the "Cinderella of the Pacific." Once you have soaked up some sun and views of coastal Ensenada, get ready to spice up your skills by learning the secrets of cooking authentic Mexican cuisine.
Your private chef will tantalize your palate with an authentic Mexican fare while teaching you the secrets of traditional Mexican favorites such as the tostada, enchilada and the king of dips, mouthwatering guacamole. Enjoy delicious margaritas during your culinary experience while learning how to prepare this world-famous cocktail which originated here in Ensenada. Learn how to properly make the classic margarita, margarita jalapeño and margarita Tamarindo.
After your Mexican lunch, enjoy a complimentary visit to the second floor, home to Tequilera Ensenada. Your private host will teach you about the origins of the 16th-century tequila beverage, its captivating history, and the intricate creation process. You will explore the differences between tequila's three most popular varieties as you sample Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo, each with its unique distillation process. You can also sample three additional liquors and purchase bottles of tequila to take home as souvenirs of your memorable day in Mexico.
Your tour will end at The Opal Mine Jewelry store where you can view and purchase Mexican Opals, known to the Aztecs by the name Vitzitziltecpal, which means hummingbird stone due to its similarity to the bright iridescent colors of the bird's plumage.
Jose was a great tour guide. Due to circumstances beyond his control, we had to make some changes on the listed tour. But he made it even better. I really felt like I got to see parts of Ensenada I never would’ve seen on your typical tour. He took us to all the hole in the wall places and we ate the best tacos. Very very personable and nice. Highly recommend this tour
