If you are looking for a FUN excursion in Cozumel, I would HIGHLY recommend the Mexican Cooking Clas with Luis! 10 of us just did it last week, and had the BEST day! We cooked and then ate what we made. We had all the margaritas, pina coladas, beer or soda we wanted while we cooked, and laughed the whole time! Luis, David & Moises were very patient and had as much fun as we did (I think, they did!) while we played in the kitchen. It is worth every bit of the $79.00 it cost to do this excursion - a really fun & unique way to pass the day in Cozumel!
I am interested in this excursion, but wasn't sure if I'd like it. What did you cook? Where was the cooking done? Hotel, ??? Is it an all day excursion? I need some time for shopping.

We made an appetizer, a grouper main dish, and a rice tower dessert. Then, when we were served our food, they added a rice side dish to the main plate. It was really good! It was done at Playa Mia, a little area that has all kinds of beach activities. After it was over - about 2 - 2 1/2 hours - some of us stayed at the beach & some went back to town to shop. The ones that went back early got a taxi at the entrance to Playa Mia. Definitely time to do everything!
We booked this through our cruise line. There were 4 other people in the class from 2 other ships, and they also booked through the cruise. There are 20 spots for the class, so being a "single" isn't a problem. It is just more fun with a group. But, the cooking stations are set up for 4 people at each one, so you are cooking with a partner even if you come alone. Then, when you sit to eat, the tables are set up for 10 at each table, so again, you aren't by yourself. I would say do it - it's so much fun!
We were on Carnival. We booked the excursion several weeks before the cruise because we had to secure places for 10 people. But there were 6 open spaces in our class, so I am guessing that the other cruise lines did not fill their quotas. You will have a ball! Take lots of pictures so your family can see how talented you are!
