A fun way to spend the day if you've "been there, done that" in Cozumel. Pros: Great setting, friendly hosts, delicious food, nice pool Cons: Script feels over-rehearsed, we were in the great seaside location, but others were indoors, with no view, I highly doubt that the free margarita refills had much if any alcohol.

The Dancing Chefs welcome you with a big smile and a bottomless margarita, but keep you standing for the fun Salsa dance class.... More

My wife and I visited Salsa and Salsa as a cruise excursion on March 16, 2015. What a fun day that was. When we arrived at the destination in Cozumel, our hosts Karla and Daphne as well as the many wait staff welcomed us warmly. This excursion and activity is clearly a very well oiled machine – but I say... More

We did this excursion after great reviews from my boss but found we did not have at all the same experience. Maybe the group was too big, but we left very unsatisfied. Only one of the margaritas had tequila in it, the others had to be virgin. The 5 salsas we made from scratch were great but did not fill... More
