What you'll do

I recommend this experience to those who are interested in enjoying an unforgettable afternoon in the Cuban style, among cocktails, rums and the rich Cuban food. Ideal for your first day in Trinidad, I will give you details on excursions, historical routes, places to visit and how to do it! Our meeting will be special, in a single afternoon you will try various typical drinks and cocktails that represent Cuba. I will teach you how to prepare the mojito, the cuba libre, the canchanchara and others. Beyond a class we will have a cultural exchange, because I will talk about the cultural, gastronomic and even religious traditions of Cubans. We will talk about the Rums of Cuba, the Cuban coffee. I will explain the ingredients that we will use and its history, then I will do the demonstration and explain step by step, everything you must do, then, with my help or alone, you will prepare your first drink. We will bring happiness. Finally, my wife Yaneisi, a passionate cook, will serve a typical traditional Cuban dinner at the table, so that you can enjoy the flavors of authentic and traditional Cuba. This dinner is made with ingredients grown by local farmers. It will be an unforgettable encounter, in a common neighborhood and outside the tourist area, which will allow you to see the other (non-tourist) side of Trinidad.If your group is large they are also welcome
