The name Tentiko is derived from the Papiamento language of Curaçao and the word oútentiko, which means “authentic.” Launched in 2012 by Cyd Crouse and Jim Chesebro, Tentiko often features unknown experts such as Master Walker Jonathan Stalls, who leads a neighborhood walk.
Occasionally there is a minor celebrity at the helm, such as author Pam Houston, who offered a Read Between the Wines experience. The workshops, which are often seasonal, are broken into groups like Family Fun, Eat & Drink, Create and so on for different ages, skill levels and interests. Experiences tend to sell out fast, so book early.
