If you read my review of La Hacienda de San Angel, you know that I love, love, love chips and salsa. So, when my husband and I booked a Western Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy, I was ecstatic to see the Costa Maya Salsa & Salsa excursion. There was no question that we were going on this excursion. Sign us up!
After disembarking the ship, it’s a quick 15-minute ride to a beachfront restaurant for the excursion. The covered patio is set up with numerous tables and chairs set for four with a beautiful view of the ocean. Everyone, of legal drinking age, is given drink tickets to order sodas, beer or margaritas. Wes and I decided to start with some blue margaritas and then switched to beer. The margaritas were good but were not as strong as we would have liked. We realized that if we really wanted a buzz, uh…I mean, more bang for our buck, we should have started with beer. We would need a little liquid courage to get up and salsa dance later in the excursion.

The excursion lasts about 2.5 to 3 hours and is for ages five and up. There were only two kids at our excursion, and although they did seem to enjoy themselves during the piñata party, they seemed a little bored during the salsa and salsa portions. I would recommend considering this excursion if you don’t have any kids in your party. Not that kids wouldn’t enjoy it, but it seems a little more adult-friendly. If you love salsa (the food) the way I do, this excursion is a must!
