If you're looking for a cruise ship excursion in Cozumel and you've had enough beach time for the week, this excursion is really fun. My group of 6 went into this not knowing what we were getting into but wanted something besides snorkeling and beaches. They provide unlimited margaritas and the margaritas are actually very good. You also make margaritas... More

If you are 21 and you enjoy drinking you have to do this ! The minute you walk in a margarita is handed to you and it keeps getting refilled, even when you don't ask. The ladies are great! You sit at a table with 8 people and you and a partner share a cutting board and ingredients to make... More

Let's face it, making salsa and margaritas in Cozumel would not seem like foodie stuff, but the recipes were surprisingly tasty. We really enjoyed making the salsa and learning some things along the way. Even more fun was learning how to make a margarita from scratch (very tasty!) while sipping as many frozen margaritas as we wanted for a couple... More

The first thing I noticed was that the entire TEAM, did everything possible to make sure the touristas and cooking students were HAPPY! Everyone, did everything they could to put some SMILES on everyone's face! Free flowing Margaritas were available. Some techniques many probably were not familiar with were offered. Overall, a fun time!

We learned to make two different types of margaritas, a huge variety of salsa's, and how to dance the salsa in 3 fun packed hours. My wife and I shared bottomless chips, margaritas, 2 quesadilla's each, and 2 deep fried taquitos each, to pair with... More
