A Taste of Mexico

Guacamole receipt

Have you ever heard the expression, “cooking soothes the soul?” Not only can it be therapeutic, but it is a meaningful and unique way of connecting with a destination through its flavors. At UNICO 20˚87˚ Hotel Riviera Maya, we embrace the flavors and ingredients from our surrounding regions. If you’ve ever visited our hotel and participated in one of our cooking classes or dined at our Mexican rotating-chef restaurant, Cueva Siete, you might have tasted our traditional guacamole that is always handcrafted with our love for Mexico.

If you are missing the unique flavors of UNICO 20˚87˚ or simply looking for inspiration in the kitchen while you are home, here is an easy-to-make recipe for homemade, traditional guacamole. Feel free to add your own twist with any additional ingredients you have at home.


  • 4 Pieces of Avocado
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • Salt to Taste
  • Pepper to Taste


  1. Take the pulp out of the avocados, and place them in a bowl.
  2. Mash the avocados with a fork, until you achieve a creamy mixture.
  3. Add in the remainder of the ingredients, and mix together.
  4. Enjoy with tortilla chips, or feel free to substitute for veggie sticks if you are looking for an alternative.
