"Our excursion at Cozumel was the Mayan Ball Game with lunch and Mexican folkloric dancing at the Kun Che Mayan Historical Park. It was really terrific for a group with diverse interests. The cooking demonstrations (tortillas, tamales and chocolate), the ball game itself, the Mayan blessing, the tequila tasting and the dancing were all fascinating and the buffet lunch was lovely."
