Puebla is a Mexican city in central Mexico. I first traveled to Puebla with my father in the fall of 2018. It was supposed to be a short trip, but after our two days, I knew that it hadn’t been enough time. Puebla is visually stunning, and filled with so much rich history that helped us understand just a little bit more about our Aztec roots. I originally wanted to visit Puebla to understand and know the town that fought and won the battle against the French on Cinco de Mayo.
Known for being the originating place for mole; Puebla is a culinary dream with many special dishes native to this city, such as tacos arabe, cemitas, and of course their mole. I learned so much from culinary expert Rocio Carvajal, who took me on a history and food tour when I first visited. This city has a lot of history that makes me so proud, which is why I want to share it with you.

Travel Day! This is the day when you’ll arrive! As you get in, I’ll help get you checked in and settled. We will enjoy the evening walking around el centro so you can get acquainted with the city, and know where how to get back to the hotel if venture out by yourself. We will meet as a group for a delicious authentic dinner, talk about the trip details, get to know each other and cheers our time together.
We are getting started bright and early. We’ll have a light breakfast together, before a full day of walking. Put your walking shoes on for a food tour of Puebla City. We will stroll throughout the whole city learning about it’s history, colonial architecture, and eating along the way. I promise you, your stomachs will be so happy.
After the tour, you’ll have a chance to rest a little at the hotel before heading out for a light dinner, a night walk before enjoying a ride on Puebla’s giant ferris wheel called “estrella de puebla” where you can see the whole city.
Buenos dias! We’ll meet together again for breakfast before we get some learning in. Based on attendees choices, we will be offering a workshop where you’ll learn how to make a mexican dish. (Pan mexicano, salsas, chile poblano, mole)
After our workshop, we will have a chance to rest and explore Puebla City a little slower. We can enjoy the mercados, and street food before having dinner together.
Domingo! Breakfast before we go out to Cholula. Another day of walking and exploring. Cholula is a nearby town in the state of Puebla. It’s a must-visit, especially on a Sunday. There is a very famous church on the top of a pyramid that we’ll walk up to. Once up there you have a view of some volcanos and most of Puebla. We’ll go inside the pyramid which is pretty cool if you’ve never been inside one. Once outside the pyramid, you can look at the excavation process that’s happening outside the pyramid.
There’s also a little mercado with vendors selling souvenirs, food, and drinks. There’s usually entertainment going on too, especially on a Sunday. We’ll enjoy dinner at a nice restaurant before going back to the city.
After breakfast together, we have an off-site adventure to tour Mexico City to explore more food techniques as we get experience in the field and actually prepare our meal.
Adios! This will be your travel day back home. We enjoy one last breakfast together, before checking out. We’ll stay with you until you depart and help you with your last minute travel details to make sure you’re en route back on time.
