My fiancee and I recently did this tour on our cruise and it was a blast! We had a previously scheduled tour, but changed at the last minute and couldn't have been more pleased! I'm not dancer, and my fiancee and barely scramble an egg, but we had a great time nonetheless. Highly recommend!

Our hosts were amazing and made sure the entire group had a great time. We learned to make six different salsas and two types of margaritas. The salsa dancing was fun and easy. We were allowed to hang out and use the resort pool after the class to top off the day. I'm ready to do it all again!

Linda and Karla kept the class fun, yet informative. The table staff (Javier was ours, but they all were great) kept the margaritas flowing or whatever you needed/wanted. This was a great way to spend a few hours and definitely different from the "normal" excursions. Would do it again if we had the opportunity.

We had a superb day with Chris, Abi and the team. Plenty of fun, and drinks!, as we learned to make Margaritas (drink 'em), Salsa and then Salsa dancing. Highly recommended and I got a little adventure. I found that I had left my Phone in the hotel lobby, during the afternoon free time. This led to a hasty taxi... More

My husband was skeptical that he would enjoy this excursion. He now enthusiastically tells everyone it's the best cruise port activity ever. We had a ball. Karla and Melissa were warm, friendly and funny. They kept the cooking, drink mixing, and dancing lively and made sure everyone was involved. Thanks so much for a great experience in Cozumel.

The hostesses of our most recent trip, Linda and Brianna, were amazing and energetic, and really made sure everyone was involved and having a good time. The margaritas were obviously great, and the salsa was delicious; plus, the snacks they bring you every now and again help keep your energy up. You can either do the salsa dancing at the... More

Salsa and Salsa was a last minute decision for Mazatlan on our recent Princess Cruise. I am so happy that I decided to join my other friends for Salsa and Salsa. You learn how to make a proper margarita and other margaritas too, several kinds of salsa, and salsa dancing. Once that is done you have the option to enjoy... More

We did the Salsa Salsa and Margaritas excursion while on a Carnival Cruise. Loved the food, energy, and especially the margaritas we made! Linda led the class and was truly a gem and Moises kept those margaritas flowing. Ah, so good!

We had a fabulous time. Melissa and Karla were terrific chefs and teachers. We learned to make several Salsas and a few margarita's and then learned to Salsa dance.
