La Villa Bonita, Tepoztlan, Mexico

Do you want to take part in what Coastal Living Magazine calls a “vacation that will change your life”? Then spend a week in the kitchen with award winning Mexican chef Ana Garcia in her specially designed boutique culinary hotel La Villa Bonita. Set in the beautiful mountain village of Tepoztlan, Vogue Magazine has said that “this tiny cooking school is a dream for any traveller”. You will see why when you join her shopping at the local markets and preparing delicious Mexican cuisine such as chiles en nogada, pescado a la talla, red and green mole, cochinta pibil, homemade corn tortillas, and tamales.  She also offers weeks at a beach front location, and a week of Yoga and cooking, and we love that this company is woman owned and local!
