We did this and had the time of our life. We were the only two on the tour so the Chef was at our table showing us everything. We made our desert, a shrimp appetizer.and a baked fish plate. Learned a lot and laughed a lot.( The 2 large pina coladas that were include made for a fun time ).Would highly recommend this excursion.

We had a group of 17 people and we all had a blast! The tequila tasting and cooking class were the best part. The only criticism we all had was there needed to be more ventilation because it gets really hot as you are cooking. The chef and his team were awesome and the food was FABULOUS!
Was an awesome tour. My kids got to cook and eat their own lunch. They had a blast!

This was a great excursion! We only had 5 on our tour which made it like a private tour. It was every interesting at the tequila place, fun at the Cocoa place and had a blast cooking with our private chef. This was a wonderful tour!

This excursion "Taste of Cozumel with Mexican Traditions" was absolutely the BEST ! We were able to ride through Cozumel, stop at a village ,watch and taste how chocolate and tequila are made and then prepare our own Mexican 3 course meal ....topped off with time spent on the beach !
