This was a shore excursion offered by the cruise ship. We have taken several cruises but have never pay to do these. This was our first and we had a blast. It may have ruined my ability to avoid shore excursions in the future. This was so worth the money (but especially since we had some shipboard credit available to us aas well). The ladies/girls made this fun! No need to find lunch - you eat what you make and if I were buying drinks on the ship the included margaritas more than paid for half of the excursion. (Can you tell I am an accountant). There was even time left over and I did a littel snorkeling off the hotel's beach area (I brought my mask & snorkel with). Unfortunately it started to rain and the ladies could not lie in the sun. The salsa making and dancing are in a second story covered veranda so the weather is no issue. If you do not think you can dance, it does not matter, they make it easy and the margaritas always help as well.

Hi John! Your review really made us laugh. From an accountant's point of view Salsa and Salsa the best way to spend your day in Cozumel: you can't argue otherwise.... Looks like you'll be coming back for a refresher class soon. Happy cooking! Greetings from the Dancing Chefs

My husband and I selected this Cozumel excursion from our cruise. A very short drive from the pier and we arrived at Hotel Cozumel Resort. We met our Salsa and Salsa team in an open air room looking out to the sea. We learned to make 7 kinds of salsas and 2 kinds of Margaritas. Our margaritas were continuously refilled. We all enjoyed the salsas, guacamole and now have authentic recipes. After the salsa demonstration, we learned the basic Salsa dance steps. Amanda and Alexis were wonderful. No pressure. When we were finished we spent an hour at the resort pool (or you could use the beach). It was so nice to have just a 10 minute drive back to the pier and shopping. Do this tour next time in Cozumel

Thank you for mentioning that after the tour you can use the pool and beach of the hotel, free of charge. See you on your next trip to Cozumel. Greetings from the Dancing Chefs...... Olé!!!

This is a great excursion. You make wonderful salsas and they give you unlimited margaritas to drink while you do it! It is very well orchestrated and everyone has a super time! It is in a beautiful setting too. The salsa lesson was also lots of fun. Afterward, you can leave or stay and swim. We had a fun, fun, time.

Hi Julie! Looks like you found the perfect way to spend the day in Cozumel: making 7 yummy salsas and sampling them with quesadillas, taquitos and tortillas chips while sipping on tasty margaritas. You will enjoy the beautiful view of the Caribbean while you dance the afternoon away. Happy cooking and hope to see you again soon. Greetings from the Dancing Chefs

Salsa and Salsa was the best fun I've ever had on a cruise excursion! I highly recommend it to everyone. The staff did a wonderful job keeping us informed on how to make our salsas and margaritas and they also made sure that our glasses never went empty! If you don't want to do snorkeling or shopping, this excursion is worth your time! Ole'
