Cooking classes in Vanuatu

Looking for a fun activity while you are on holiday in Vanuatu?

Marcus operates the Papaya Loco Island Cooking School from Papaya Villa


“Class here is a relaxed fun session making some great food and having a whole lot of laughs,” says Marcus. “There’s nothing formal about it. It’s about getting to know the local food and having fun.”

Join Marcus among the scent of saffron and bay leaves… A glass of our own special tropical sangria and some of my favorite mambo tunes.
After your class you might want to take a quick swim… we are at right on the ocean with our very own private beach! So bring your bathers and a towel …

What to bring

Everything is supplied so just bring your appetite and a big smile! You may not want to plan dinner as you will be eating the fruits of your labor…
