“Traveling is part of our life…as we personally host our guests as we cook, eat, play and travel our way through San Miguel de Allende,” said Linda Meyers, co-owner of Cook in Mexico. “It’s always so exciting to be selected by Travel Weekly for our destination tours, we’re truly grateful,” said Meyers.

Cook in Mexico was born out of the Meyers’ love for the Mexican scenery and food, and requests from their Cook in Tuscany guests about other culinary tour locations; they immediately thought San Miguel, Mexico was the perfect site. Retired United States Air Force pilot, George Meyers and his wife, Linda, now a retired Prince William County school teacher are natives of New Orleans and high school sweethearts. The Meyers’ shared a long-time passion for good food. The Meyers personally take guests on all tours, creating an immersive experience in Mexican cuisine and culture. The week-long package tours are all-inclusive of hotels and food, not including air fare.
