With us you can learn more about Guatemalan food, culture, traditions and every day life.

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.
Why choose Us
Our doors are always open
Cuscun is located 1 km North from Antigua in the town of Jocotenango. The cooking school is part of a real Guatemalan home in a familiar neighborhood. From our roof top terrace we can admire the Volcan de Agua while enjoying our dinner.
Join us, we will have fun Together
Cuscun is like home. We love what we do and we put so much passion in it.
