Hacienda Petac Offers New Culinary Experiences

Hacienda Petac

Hacienda Petac, a private estate 30 minutes from Merida in the Yucatan, has always been a culinary destination due to its hands-on cooking classes taught in a modern teaching kitchen, and excursions to nearby markets to shop for ingredients. 

Notable chefs and cooking tours have now discovered Hacienda Petac, bringing small groups together for a Yucatán culinary adventure. In a curated week of cooking classes and excursions, guests explore the cuisine of the Yucatán, as well as the cultural offerings of the region. Complementing the daily cooking activities, guests have the chance to tour the Mayan ruins at Uxmal, picnic at a hacienda museum, and go swimming in one of the Yucatán’s many cenotes. They also spend time in the city of Merida, at the market to shop for cooking-class ingredients.

For those foodies who would like to put their own small groups together, the Hacienda offers package suggestions that feature all-inclusive accommodations, a host of traditional Yucatan cooking classes, tropical drink demonstration classes, market tours in Merida, and more. All packages include a full staff to address every need.
