The fun begins on this Cozumel excursion as you head to Mexico Lindo Tequilera, a tequila manufacturer, to learn the origins of Mexico's national drink and the role it has played throughout Mexican history and culture. Learn how tequila is manufactured and sample several different types.

From there you will travel to Mayan Cacao Company to discover the origins of chocolate and how the ancient Mayans used the beans for currency. See the tools they used to create hot cocoa, their sacred beverage. Sample some delicious chocolate then continue to Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park.

Here you will attend an exciting Mexican Cuisine workshop where you will craft a three-course meal. Under the supervision of your expert chef you will make a variety of Mexican dishes including dessert. Once you have finished cooking your meal you will have the chance to sit down with a cocktail, your fellow cooks and a gorgeous ocean view as you enjoy the delicious fruits of your labor.

After your cooking 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.

Reviewer: Jenn Monroe
We have done every type of excursion you can think of from beach breaks to parasailing but this was by far one of our best excursions ever. We have cruised for years but I recently became a travel agent who specializes in cruises and I wanted to do something different then a beach break so I could give my clients other options. This is it! I have already booked a party of 4 for this excursion. From the moment we arrived at the storefront for check-in to the moment we got out of the van at the end the employees were professional and knowledgeable and they truly enjoyed their job! The chef and his sous chefs' were very knowledgeable and made the entire experience beyond FUN!!!

Reviewer: Tina Reno
The tequila and cocoa stops were informative and yummy. Our information stated there would be beach time available, but when we arrived at Playa Mia we were asked to choose either beach/water park or the cooking experience.This was disappointing for we were looking forward to a little relaxation time in the beautiful water. However, we were not disappointed by selecting the cooking experience. Our group had a total of 8 individuals. We had a blast preparing a wonderful meal while being supplied with alcoholic drinks from the bar. Luis was entertaining and a fabulous chef. His menu was easy and delicious. While I did not prepare the fish, I did taste another parties and true to his word it did not taste like fish. I am looking forward to trying the dish at home. Should we visit Cozumel again, we would consider a visit to just Playa Mia to snorkel and another cooking lesson.

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.

Reviewer: Angela Gittens
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!
