Irma's Chef Services

Enjoy private chef services in the comforts of your beach home. Our chef offers local fresh​ ​local food prepared with traditional Mexican, Mayan, and Aztec flavors. Irma uses only the​ ​freshest local ingredients and purchases her fish from the local fish market.

Her choice of fish, vegetables, and fruits are inspired by what is in season.​ ​Meals are served family-style. Please choose one menu for your group, unless someone has a​ ​dietary restriction.

We arrange Irma’s services to make things easier for our guests, but she is an Independent​ ​Chef and not an employee of Mahayana. Please respect the mealtimes and have the space​ ​clean for her to work her magic.
