Salsa, Salsa And More Salsa!

Enjoy a hands-on experience and learn to make a variety of authentic salsas including the world-famous guacamole, the classic "Pico de Gallo" and more. Then, participate in an exciting and fun salsa dance lesson that will fill your day with lasting memories! Finally, enjoy the beach, sun, and sand at Playa Mia.

Salsa, Salsa and More Salsa!

After meeting your tour guide at the designated meeting point you will depart for your Cozumel shore excursion, and make your way to Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park. After a short ride, you will arrive to where the fun never ends.

This deluxe package with buffet and open bar included is for the person who does not want to have to worry about anything on their port day in Cozumel.

Start your Cozumel excursions by learning the secrets of how to prepare salsa. Combine your freshly made salsa with a sampling of delicious quesadillas, corn chips and fried tacos. Enjoy your salsas with tasty margaritas, both made for and brought to you from a bar. Outside the class enjoy an international buffet and domestic open bar.

Next on your Cozumel tour, it's time to learn how to salsa dance! Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in the Caribbean. The movements of salsa have their origins in Cuban Son, Cha-cha-cha, Mambo and Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena as well as other dance forms.

After the dance 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. This famous beach park is the ideal place to swim in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, sunbathe on the white-sand beach and have a blast in the brand-new water park. Explore Buccaneer's Bay kids area, a lagoon-pool chock-full of fun activities including a pirate ship, water cannons, water sprays and animal slides. Relax with your favorite drink at the Oasis Island Pool and Hydro Massage Tub or make a splash on the 200-foot long Twin Twister Waterslides.

In addition to the white sand beach and beautiful Cozumel water, there is a shopping area, swimming pool, lounge chairs, beach volleyball and soccer courts, ping-pong tables, restrooms and dressing rooms, kayaks, paddle boats, water bicycles, floating mats, and the amazing floating park. Under the ocean, there are sunken Mayan relics you can snorkel over.

For an additional fee, the following activities and items are also available at the park: drinks at the espresso bar, beach umbrellas, snorkel gear, other water sport equipment, outdoor massage, hair braiding, a fish spa, parasailing, and more.

If you cannot find something to do at Playa Mia, then you are not looking.
