|From Cozumel, Mexico, we did Salsa & Salsa, and are so glad we did … we had so much fun making salsa and margaritas and then dancing … we would even do this same excursion again! It was a short drive (about 10 minutes) to a beachfront hotel. We abstained from the alcohol (except for the strawberry margarita), and they provided virgin options and iced tea instead. Our cooking and dancing instructor and the whole staff were very outgoing and accommodating. All of the raw ingredients and corn chips as well as bottled water are on the table upon arrival, and there are servers to keep refilling drinks, and bring additional hot food (cheese quesadillas and chicken taquitos) and ingredients. We made 6 fresh and tasty salsas, and were fuller than a meal! Somewhere in the middle, there is a break to use the restrooms and walk out to the patio to enjoy the view. There is an option to stay after dancing, but there really wasn’t a beach persay; there is what appeared to be a manmade sandy area with a few loungers overlooking the ocean. It’s a very pretty view, and a nice walk around the boardwalks, but not really a place to swim at the beach. The only thing we didn’t like was that transportation back to the pier was by taxi. The description when we signed up did not say this; it stated we’d reboard the bus. Basically, you walk underground to the lobby across the street, get in the line for your cruise line and they fill the vehicles as they pull in; there are cars and vans, but they tend to put large parties in the vans, so we were in a car with another party from another ship, and it was awkward and a bit scary for those 10 minutes being in an unknown area with an unknown driver and unknown passengers.|
