I would have liked to take this tour but the cruise lines have got to Salsa and Salsa so that people are not allowed to take direct bookings from cruise passengers. This type of monopolistic contract with the cruise lines is just wrong. I want to support local business and save money at the save time. Too bad I can't... More

FUN, FUN, FUN! What a delightful way to spend a few hours of our vacation! The "Dancing Chef's" created an entertaining atmosphere drawing all participants into the action. The margarita's and salsa we made were wonderful. Of course, after several margaritas the salsa lesson's were also very entertaining for those who where "dancing" as well as those who chose to...

Hi Judy! Thank you for your triple FUN rating! Salsa and Salsa is fun for chefs of all ages, because who doesn't like to experiment with food. The free-flowing margaritas (with or without alcohol) will loosen you up for the easy Salsa dance class. The Dancing Chefs get everybody on the dance floor and you will leave the tour shouting......... More

This was the first time we did this excursion with Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas, and I have to say that it was very pleasurable. You got to drink and make margaritas and eat and make salsas. The facilitators were energetic and engaging. The food and drinks were delicious. Thanks for a great time!

Hi Royal Caribbean cruiser! Thank you for sharing your experience at Salsa and Salsa. The tour is very hands-on and interactive and you will walk away with a handy recipe sheet, so you can recreate your salsa memories at home too. Keep up the Salsa spirit and we hope to welcome you again in Cozumel, Mazatlan or Cabo San Lucas.... More

You can't go wrong combining food, in this case Salsas, with Margaritas, and dancing. We were on a Oasis of the Seas with great friends and wanted a fun activity in Cozumel. This experience was awesome! The salsas we made were delicious! We were surprised how easy it was. Then the margaritas we made were the best I ever tasted...... More

We were delighted by this excursion! We are a party of 6 friends who travel together. We didn't know what to expect as our cruise director recommended this but said that sometimes it was hard to sell because people didn't understand the idea!

Hi Michele! Thank you for being a Salsa ambassador. Looks like you caught the Salsa fever in Cozumel! The tour is very hands-on and you learn how to make the best margaritas and salsas from scratch. The salsa ingredients are previously roasted and diced by our kitchen staff, so you have more time to sit back and enjoy the beautiful... More

Salsa and Salsa isn't exactly the kind of excursion my husband and I would normally have chosen to go on. We may have signed up with friends we met immediately following a bar crawl on our cruise ship and in the morning thought to ourselves "What have we done!?" We don't really like dancing and making salsa just seemed a... More
