We booked this tour with little information .It turned into the funniest tour we have ever done.Karla was fantastic ,informative but above all the ultimate engaging Hostess. Our group was small but she and the staff were fantastic and welcoming.
We made salsa , drank great margaritas,more salsa , more margaritas and learned to salsa dance.
The area for making salsa overlooked a beautiful ocean,sand
with warm Gentle breezes.Rosie our tour guide was also excellent involved with us throughout the tour.
Absolutely ,the most enjoyable cruise tour we have done!

You learn to make margaritas and salsas from scratch and enjoy your creations with tasty snacks. Thank you for mentioning that the Salsa venue has a beautiful view on the mesmerizing blue sea. We hope you will come back soon for a refresher class. Ole´!!

I signed up solo for this as a shore excursion from our recent cruise, as my husband wanted to go fishing - his loss! Next time (and I will be returning) he will be joining me. It was a great experience, first rate in every way. The hotel that hosts the event is beautiful, and the "class" is held in an open air restaurant on the second floor that overlooks the water. The hosts/teachers were young, talented and the entire time flew by. The margaritas were delicious, and the salsa recipes were easy and doable. All the ingredients were laid out on each table for eight and the organization was impressive. There were unlimited margaritas, bottled water, chips, salsas as well as hot appetizers that were passed. I was totally impressed with the cleanliness and professionalism of the entire event. And by the way, the Salsa dancing lesson (after the margaritas!) was a blast too. When it ended, we had the choice of returning to the ship or staying and using the facilities at the lovely boutique style hotel. My new found friends that were my tablemates and I agreed that it was a highlight of our vacation.

Greetings to Florida! Thank you for your extensive review where you left no detail undiscussed. The tour is lots of fun for singles, couples or groups. You're seated with 8 chefs on a table and like you said: you quickly find new friends after drinking, eating and laughing together for 3 hours. We will welcome you and your husband with a big smile and a margarita when you're coming back for a refresher class..... Olé!

A great, fun experience. Pleasantly surprised to find my favorite margarita recipe is their recipe. Learned how to make some great salsa and guacamole too. This is an excursion not to miss while in the area.

Hi Kirk! Thank you for sharing your experience at Salsa and Salsa. During the tour you learn how to make authentic margaritas and fresh salsas, using only natural ingredients. You also learn how to dance Salsa like a pro (well... almost!). The enthusiastic Dancing Chefs will have you laughing all morning and you will leave shouting..... Olé!!!

Greetings to Texas! What a blast your family had at Salsa and Salsa. The tour has something for everyone: free-flowing margaritas (with or without alcoholic), spicy Salsas made by the best chef (YOU!) and an exciting dance class. It's great to hear that you've already used your Salsa skills at home too. We hope to welcome you again for a refresher class soon...... Olé!!
