On a food tour you expect to enjoy your sense of taste. Otehlia made sure all senses were heightened! The smells of food, beach, jungle. The sights: lush plants, lovely water, animals particularly the fish when snorkeling. The sound of the birds, waves, sea breeze, even a howler monkey! Not only eating the local food, helping make it while learning about the culture behind it. Super fun tour! SO glad I went!
