We are locals. We support locals.

Cuscun literally means food, so Guatemalan cuisine is our main focus. We are a cooking school, but our aim is not only to cook. We also provide authentic experiences. With us you can learn more about Guatemalan food, culture, traditions and every day life. Join us on our custom made cooking classes, evening street food tours or be part of our off-the-grid tours around the city of Antigua.

This is Us, Cuscun



I consider myself a good host and a foodie. I do what I love the most, so I always do it with a smile. My biggest goal is to share my passion with people around me.



Cooking has been always part of my life since I am a kid. All The recipes I know have been passed down from generation to generation and I am happy to share them.

I love learning always something new but what I like the most is sharing what I know with other people. Cooking is so much fun and thanks to my mum Carolina, I am improving day by day.
