Great value!

The tour was so worth the money and was really worth much more than what we paid. After leaving our ship, we went to a meeting spot and bused to the location. The cooking class was in a beautiful building with great cooking stations. The class was loads of fun and very informative. The food that we made and got to eat was wonderful and it didn't hurt that all the drinks including the time at the beach were included in the price. The water at the beach was a little dirty and full of seaweed but still fun. The chairs and umbrellas were included in the price also. SO WORTH THE MONEY!

Chef Moises and his assistant Wilmer were so much fun, informative, and funny! We were welcomed by Wilmer and he explained to us the process and what we would be cooking for the day. Then Chef Moises came out and we quickly began cooking. We prepared a dessert made of plantain and Chef Moises showed us how to decorate our plates with chocolate and cream. We created various shapes and animals and learned how to plate our desserts. We then prepared a sope with shrimp, veggies, and a yummy salsa. Next we prepared a yummy fish dish topped with a tamarind sauce. Chef Moises and Wilmer explained every step and we also enjoyed unlimited drinks during our class. We then ate our food in a nice room with a great view of the ocean. We spent the rest of the day hanging out on the beach. It was a great day!!

I would give more stars if I could! The cooking was informative and very easy to follow, the instructor, Angel, was a great teacher, cook and comedian all rolled into one. We got to eat all we cooked and drinks were delicious and never stopped. The only thing that would make it better is the recipes so I can duplicate the meal for my family at home, copied QR code for recipe, hoping to hear back soon!

I had this cooking class with my husband and had a wonderful time. The chefs there that teach the class are wonderful - part comedians, part cooking instructors and part history teachers. Fun, fun fun!

We were part of this tour last month while cruising on Royal Caribbean. We really had a wonderful time during the whole excursion, we had a cooking class and everything was delicious. The chef was very patient and explain very well every step, he was also funny. After we ate all that we prepared, we had a beach break that was wonderful. The beach was sandy, the water so clear and had a lot of lounge chairs and shaded areas. I really loved this place and I promised to return very soon bringing more family and friends.
