This excursion was SO MUCH FUN!!! It was a beautiful location overlooking the water, delicious salsas, and energetic instructors. The hands-on opportunity of actually making (and tasting!) your own salsas and margaritas was perfect... combine that with the free recipe cards given to us at the end of the class and I know I can replicate them all at home!...

Booked this excursion through NCL. Had a really fun time making salsas and guacamole. The free-flowing margaritas were so good! The first margarita we made was on the rocks and it tasted so good! I loved just using fresh lime, tequila and orange liqueur. It was not as sweet as the frozen margaritas they already had made. I'm not a... More
