Learnt a lot about Mexican cuisine, lifestyle and even general cooking tips. The behind the scenes crew worked very hard to ensure everything was kept clean and that all... More

Coty and her crew were entertaining and made us very welcome. It was like hanging out in a friends kitchen and she puts you to work helping with dinner.

Very professional and thought out menus designed to make sure everybody could do the recipes in their home town. Chef Coty rocks!

I travelled to Playa with my two adult girls and my husband suggested taking a cooking class as the weather was not cooperating. What a great idea, and to spend the afternoon with Coty and her crew made it a day to remember! The authentic recipes were explained with attention to detail and a love of Mexican cuisine.

I recently returned from a visit to my friend's home in Playa. She arranged for us to take a cooking class at CoCos.
