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
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
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.

Some tables were moved out of the way to create a dance
floor and a handful of us followed Francisco’s step-by-step instructions on
learning the salsa.
We were taught
four different steps and it was actually pretty fun.
This was the one part of the excursion my husband was not
looking forward to but the liquid courage really helped him have a good
After our salsa-dancing
lesson, there was time for some relaxation on the beach.
There was also a piñata so the kiddos
could have some fun.

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

seems a little more adult-friendly.
If you love salsa (the food) the way I do, this excursion is a must!
