It was a large group of us including two younger children. We booked through our Cruise Line and quickly decided we had made a great choice. The staff were friendly and attentive. The entire experience was great- from learning how to make several different types of salsas and guacamole to margaritas. By the time we got around to the dancing,... More

We booked this as a cruise ship excursion. We were sent over in a mini bus taxi to a restaurant that had a beautiful beach. We were sent upstairs to a big hall type area. The girls leading the excursion were lots of fun. The margarita's were plentiful throughout. They do have non alcohol drinks and those were great. We... More

This is the tour to take if you love to drink and dance. We were given lots of (OK but not great) magaritas and got to make one of our own. We also made 5 salsas, 3 of which I liked. The floor was cleared and people were given the opportunity to dance with lots of "fun" but little instruction.

We booked this excursion through our cruise line. From the description we had no idea that it was going to be as entertaining as it was. Linda and Laura were delightful hosts. The food was delicious, the margaritas virtually endless, and the dancing was a great way to cap it off.

We enjoyed this tour as part of our cruise stop in Cozumel. We met the tour coordinators at the pier and from there took taxis to the hotel where they were hosting the Salsa and Salsa tour. When you get there you are welcomed with a frozen margarita. For non-alcohol drinkers they provided a drink called Jamaica which one of... More

The excursion was well worth the money and SO much fun. We got to all make five different salsa from scratch and two margaritas. All while they kept refilling our margarita glasses (maybe had 7?!) and we were given quesadillas and homemade chips to snack on. Then we got to learn salsa dancing and then swim on the beach! So...
