Hi fellow Chef! What a wonderful time you and your kids had at Salsa and Salsa. The Dancing Chefs catch everybody in the act and you will be laughing all the way. We work a lot with audience participation, so there's never a dull moment. Hopefully you will recreate your Salsa memories with the free recipe sheet you received after the tour and we hope to welcome you again soon in Cabo, Cozumel or Mazatlan..... Ole!!!

“Salsa y Salsa highly recommend. So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

The two chefs talk you through making several salsas at your own table with all the ingredients ready for you. They drew some people from the audience to prepare their salsa in front of you. Competition for hottest salsa was fun. These two women have so much fun and energy. They draw the fun out of you. Margaritas were made and enjoyed! Ole!! We left for group photos in our chef hats and aprons on an outdoor patio. They cleared tables, and the fun easy salsa lesson began. The young German woman has obviously taught dance. I can highly recommend Salsa Salsa in Cabo San Lucas. I would do it again.

Hi Nancy! Thank you for sharing your experience at Salsa and Salsa. The tour is interactive and hands-on. You learn how to make the best margaritas and salsas from scratch using authentic Mexican cooking tools. The Dancing Chefs are ever-excited and their enthusiasm is contagious. Hopefully you will keep up the Salsa spirit at home and don't forget the occasional Ole!!!

“Fantastic fun for all to enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

I attended this fun excursion with my 9 year old daughter and we both had a great time. The staff were very careful to provide kiddie appropriate options for both drinks and also for ingredients for the salsa and guac (i.e. no chillis!!). We enjoyed making and tasting all the salsa's and also all the extra food provided such as the quesadilla's and flauta's. Yum! Suzanne was the perfect hostess and boy can that lady wiggle. We had a blast learning the salsa steps. The hosting restaurant was one of the nicest we have been to in the marina area of Cabo. All in this was a great way to spend a day and I highly recommend it.

Hi fellow Chef! What an amazing mother-daughter experience you had at Salsa and Salsa! The tour is suitable for chefs of all ages, because who doesn't like to experiment with food and drinks? Thank you for mentioning that we have tasty non-alcoholic drinks available throughout the tour. Hopefully you will keep up your Salsa moves at home and don't forget the occasional Olé!!! Greetings from the Dancing Chefs

“Just plain fun!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

There is no better way to spend a few hours than in Cabo San Lucas than this. We took this excursion offered by our Royal Caribbean cruise ship. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We were looking for an excursion that was not the usual shopping and sightseeing and we found a winner. Suzanne and Marilyn were the perfects hosts. We had found making salsa, drinking margaritas and learning to dance to salsa. This is definitely a unique and fun excursion. Ole!!!!!

Hi Royal Caribbean Cruiser! What a blast you had at Salsa and Salsa with Dancing Chefs Suzanne and Marilyn. The tour is unlike any other shore excursion in Cabo San Lucas. You learn how to make the best margaritas and salsas from scratch using fresh ingredients and authentic Mexican cooking tools. And the best thing: you sample your own creations with tasty snacks and free-flowing Margaritas. We hope to greet you again in Cabo, Cozumel or Mazatlan..... Olé!!!

“Not Your Routine Excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

The wife, her sister and husband, and I took a cruise and didn't want to do the normal tour the city or go to the beach excursions, we all like salsa and margaritas, and learning a new couples dance sounded like a lot of fun. We were not disappointed!

The venue, a local restaurant, was perfect. Our hosts and the restaurant staff were outstanding!

We got to make several salsas, several margaritas (non-alcoholic drinks are also available), learned a bit about the various ingredients we used, had some friendly competitions, and ended our outing by learning a simple salsa dance (which we are still perfecting).

Salsa and Salsa is definitely an excursion worth doing - you can always go to the beach, tour the city, and a few other normal touristy activities, but this is something you normally might not take advantage of, and really should.

Highly recommended!!

Hi Geri! What a wonderful surprise it must have been to walk into the wonderful world of Salsa and Salsa. The enthusiastic Dancing Chefs take you on a journey into the heart of Salsa making and Salsa dancing. Thank you for mentioning that we catch everybody in the act, even the most hesitant chefs. Hopefully you will visit us again in Cabo, Cozumel or Mazatlan.... Olé!!!
