Our most popular tour in Suchitoto!

If you have been in El Salvador for more than a day you most likely have tried the national dish, Pupusas. Now learn how they are made, most of the ingredients can be found around the world so if you want to make your own pupusas when you get home, don’t miss this hands-on experience. You will also have the chance to make tortillas, somewhat easier than making pupusas but still a challenge for the novice.

One of our clients sent photos of the pupusas she made with family and friends back in Australia.

It always makes us happy to hear that those who have taken Tita´s pupusa classes make them on their own!

Reservations for groups of any size can be arranged, remember we don’t just show you how to make pupusas but we let you prepare your own with the ingredients that you want. Our pupusas classes lets you prepare up to 3 gourmet or standard pupusas of rice or corn dough, included in the price, a beverage.

Available beverage options include national beer, sodas, bottled water, coffee, tea or one of our famous fruit smoothies. Rates: We charge $20/person which includes your 3 gourmet pupusas and one beverage. Time: About 45-60 minutes for groups of 1 to 3 people.

If you are interested in more than pupusas we can develop half and full day cooking sessions and teach you about local flavors and ingredients. Cooking classes can be arranged for with variable menus of Salvadoran typical dishes and appetizers. Please ask about prices and we do try to limit these classes to a maximum of 3 participants. Prices for 4-hour cooking classes start at $150 this for groups of 1-3.
