We had a blast!! Made new friends from Louisiana and Bryan College Station, Texas. Also, enjoyed the non-alcohol option. We'll take our swimsuits for the next visit and enjoy the natural jacuzzi and beach front resort portion of this excursion. The first time we visited, I became ill due to a rare heart condition.

Our pharmacist recommended this to us. I like to cook, my wife likes to eat. You learn to make personal amounts of salsa (serves 1-4 people). You learn to make Pico de Gallo. After making a green salsa, you use part of it to make guacamole. You will also make a dessert salsa, which gets mixed with ice cream -... More

Hi Kelly, Once again the family rules! Salsa and salsa has to be the best excursion developed with the family in mind. Families ranging from 4 years - 90 + years old enjoy time spent together, laughing and joking and then even dancing.

My husband was reluctant to try this excursion because of the dancing (so were two of the other husbands at our table.) But our chefs, Stephanie and Linda, made the entire afternoon so enjoyable. We had a great time making/drinking/eating margaritas and salsa - and even learning to dance salsa. If you are looking for a unique and memorable excursion,... More

A maverick you are indeed! Ahhh, what to do with those great husbands and their left feet . The greatest joy for us Dancing chefs at Salsa is to watch precisely those who had no idea how fun salsa making and dancing could bring.

We loved this excursion. My husband was a bit reluctant about the dancing! Guess what, we were voted most fun couple in the dancing. I do think the margaritas helped! We will do again!

My husband and I went on a cruise and were initially the least excited about having to go to Cozumel; however, when reading about the various excursions, the Salsa, Salsa, & Margaritas class caught our eye!
