Add to Itinerary

Join a group of folks all bent on seeing the best that Cozumel has to offer. Your tour will begin as you board your bus and head off to the water park for some fun and relaxation.

During the afternoon, you will learn how to make a 3-course Mexican dinner and each step of the way you will enjoy your demo and then apply the lessons personally. This extremely organized experience will deliver an appetizer of corn tortillas with shrimp in a tomato and chipotle sauce with a topping of the traditional cheese, lettuce, and cream. Shrimp can be replaced with chicken breast or potato if you prefer. A lesson in entrees brings you fish covered in sautéed veggies with a tamarind and chili powder sauce, all wrapped in foil and grilled. This is definitely a useful recipe to take home with you for entertaining. And always there is a dessert! Enjoy caramelized plantains with cinnamon and sugar and drizzled with a chocolate and tequila sauce.

Along with your entire time at the facility, you will have a national open bar included. Purified bottled water, draft beer, assorted soft drinks, juice, mixed drinks with tequila, mezcal, brandy, rum, vodka such as margaritas, piña colada, rum punch, daiquiris assorted flavors, American coffee, and Mexican wine.
