Immerse yourself in the Wayuu Culture with our Traditional Indigenous Cooking class!  Get the opportunity to meet the native community and visit their residential area, a Ranchería!

About the experience

Vanessa, our local host, and the Wayuu community in La Guajira designed a special and unique activity that will allow you to experience and understand their culture in the most delightful way- by preparing and tasting the typical dishes from their region!

The experience will start at their Rancheria, where the native community will receive you with an introduction about their culture, wildlife, and vegetation and then you’ll be led to a hands-on Traditional Indigenous Cooking class, where you will learn about the process of preparing their traditional dish, Chivo con Bollo (goat meat with a native bun).

You will also get the opportunity to learn about the artisanal process of creating their local drink: Chirrinchi, known as the ” liquor of the dessert”. This beverage comes from the sugar cane or panela and it is a really important drink in the Wayuu culture as it makes part of special events and funerals.

About the Community and the Non-Profit Organization.

The Wayuu community is the native Community of La Guajira, the largest indigenous population in Colombia. By purchasing this activity you are helping to over 200 young natives that are being supported by the non-profit organization, El Origen. This organization helps local young people in danger who are looking for studying opportunities and new ways of undertaking projects that have a positive impact on their community.

Tasting Colombia is the best! I took a cooking class of Colombian food, and it was amazing. They have a great
variety of Colombian dishes, such as patacones and merengón. I tried these two, and for me, it was the best decision I ever made. I fell in love with the merengón, the flavor and the fruits blew my mind. Everyone should try this one! You’ll never forget it. Thanks Tasting Colombia!


Loved it!

The fruit tasting experience was super fun! I took my girlfriend that was visiting Colombia for the first time and we had a really good time. We learned about bunch of fruits we didn’t know existed and the exfoliation was really great. This is a great experience for people that want to have a very ‘local’ experience.


Thank you!

Thanks Tasting Colombia! I celebrated muy daughter’s birthday with them and it was such an amazing experience. My 9 year-old daughter wanted to invite her friends to cook, which is difficult for me not just because have no idea 🤭, but because it were 10 girls. So I looked for a place where she could have the most unforgettable celebration. I contacted #tastingcombia and they got me this baking class. My daughter and her friends spent the whole afternoon making cupcakes 🧁 and brownies @ a professional bakery. It was perfect! I strongly recommend it.
