Salsa, Salsa and More Salsa!
After meeting your tour guide at the designated meeting point you will depart for your Cozumel shore excursion, and make your way to Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park. After a short ride, you will arrive to where the fun never ends.
This deluxe package with buffet and open bar included is for the person who does not want to have to worry about anything on their port day in Cozumel.
Start your Cozumel excursions by learning the secrets of how to prepare salsa. Combine your freshly made salsa with a sampling of delicious quesadillas, corn chips and fried tacos. Enjoy your salsas with tasty margaritas, both made for and brought to you from a bar. Outside the class enjoy an international buffet and domestic open bar.
Next on your Cozumel tour, it's time to learn how to salsa dance! Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in the Caribbean. The movements of salsa have their origins in Cuban Son, Cha-cha-cha, Mambo and Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena as well as other dance forms.
After the dance lesson, be prepared to enjoy the best of the Caribbean; relax and let loose with top-notch services, facilities and exciting activities for all ages. This famous beach park is the ideal place to swim in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, sunbathe on the white-sand beach and have a blast in the brand-new water park. Explore Buccaneer's Bay kid's area; a lagoon-pool chock-full of fun activities including a pirate ship, water cannons, water sprays and animal slides. Relax with your favorite drink at the Oasis Island Pool and Hydro Massage Tub or make a splash on the 200-foot long Twin Twister Waterslides.
In addition to the white sand beach and beautiful Cozumel water, there is a shopping area, swimming pool, lounge chairs, beach volleyball and soccer courts, ping-pong tables, restrooms and dressing rooms, kayaks, paddle boats, water bicycles, floating mats, and the amazing floating park. Under the ocean, there are sunken Mayan relics you can snorkel over.
For an additional fee, the following activities and items are also availabile at the park: drinks at the espresso bar, beach umbrellas, snorkel gear, other water sport equipment, outdoor massage, hair braiding, a fish spa, parasailing, and more.
If you cannot find something to do at Playa Mia, then you are not looking.

What a great time! This one our favorite excursion of the cruise. Tequila, Delicious Mango and Tamarin Margaritas, Salsa, Guac & Quesadillas, need I say more? The cooking class was a blast. The guide really incorporated fun aspects throughout. The dance portion was very basic, which I'm ok with! Afterwards we had hours to explore everything else Playa Mia has to offer, pools, all you can eat-drink, beachfront, inflatable obstacle course, water slides, and more. I would absolutely do this again!

My adult kids were very skeptical of this excursion but it ended up being the most favorite thing we did on our 1 week cruise! I loved making and eating the salsa we made and the margaritas very out of this world. Highly recommend this as long as you don't have young children.

Upon arrival we were all greeted by the staff everyone in the group was asked to wear a name badge. We were asked what cocktail we wanted a choice of mango or tamarind. I picked tamarind....what a drink it knocked the socks off cocktails I’ve had before.... you didn’t just get one you got refills. The food preparation was excellent, I now know how to make authentic salsa. You were also given the email address to get the recipes. What made the event was we were all told every time you went to sip your drink you had to say ‘salute’ so you can imagine in the heat and getting caught up in talking you would forget, well the penalty was a tequila shot and the ensuing laughter of the group. We then had a short salsa dance lesson to end the day ( having had lessons before it was nice to brush up) the leader was excellent going at a slow pace for everyone. I have never laughed so much. If I ever visit Cozumel (I’m from England) again via a cruise this shore excursion would be it for me.

This was one of our best excursions! The staff were wonderful and very attentive. The salsa we were taught to make was very tasty and so fun to make. They were kind and patient with the dance lessons as well - which we needed. Definitely a fun day and one of the highlights of our trip!
This was the best excursion that we booked the whole trip. Everyone Is nice, and helped us out the entire time. The tequila is smooth, and unlimited. You never run out. Food is good too.
