 Cooking In The Campo: Tamales Description:
This experience includes:

A tour of Doña Juana´s property, during which she will explain the importance of the “milpa” (corn/beans/squash planting) and show the stages of the milpa´s growth, depending on the season.
Personalized instruction regarding how to make four locally-renowned types of tamales.
A break for fresh “agua de sabor”.
The opportunity to cook your tamales over an open stove in great company.
A delicious lunch that will leave you licking your fingers.
A chance to escape the urbanity of Oaxaca and experience village life.
Four (one of each flavor) of your handmade tamales to take home.
The opportunity to buy extra tamales (if you´re a local, you know they freeze well).
Transportation from/to Tlayudona at 210 C , M. Bravo Street, inside the Plaza San Cristobal next to Café Nuevo Mundo
This experience is hosted in Spanish and can be translated into English.

It is hosted from approximately 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., which includes a snack break and a full lunch. Duration: 4-5 hours in total. (Keep in mind that Oaxacan time is different than the way we conceive of time in some other parts of the world.)

Children are welcome to participate in this experience, although they are the responsibility of their accompanying adults. This experience involves cooking over and open flame, although the cooking area is secluded from the tamal-preparation and dining area. This host family has four children for your children to play with (so guests who do not appreciate children are encouraged to reserve an alternate experience).

Bathroom facilities are available, though rustic (outhouse style). If you´re picky in that respect, we suggest you go beforehand or check out one of our more centrally-located experiences in Oaxaca City.

Cost: 1450 MXN (Mexican Pesos) per person.
Children under 5 are invited to attend for free.
Cost for children aged 5-12 years: 600 MXN per child.
