Adios, Taco Bell! Real Mexican Cuisine from Chilies to Chocolate

The destination: Mexico
The experience: Grab your gal pals and explore the culinary cultures of Oaxaca, Veracruz, and the Yucatan on a MexicaChica Getaway (www.mexicachica.com). The tour takes you from fragrant market stalls to a colonial kitchen, where you'll learn to slice and dice your way to fresh, locally sourced Mexican dishes, like tangy ceviche, queso Oaxaca with pumpkin flowers, and mole negro (a thick sauce of peppers, nuts, and chocolate). Top it off with a potent lime margarita.
Memorable moment: Cooking with locals is the first step in going from foreigner to friend. When the tour ends, you'll not only leave with new recipes, but plenty of new amigas too.
Cost: From $2100 for 7 days
