For something different, I highly recommend the ship's "Jose Cuervo Tequila Tasting Experience" which we thoroughly enjoyed. Instead of a big bus, they taxi small groups of guests to Discover Mexico Park, where we were greeted with a tequila sample to start things off on a winning note. Our guide was "Bou", who was charismatic, engaging and funny. He obviously knows his tequila and explained to us where it comes from, how it's made, and how to drink it (mixed or sipped - no shots!). Our small group was then taken to a tasting room where we sampled three varieties using the three senses, very much like wine tasting. Next came an exciting aerial performance by the "Papantla Flyers", actually an ancient ritual of sorts, followed by a delicious margarita and tacos. Even though there were lots of people here for the tasting, because we toured with a small group, it never felt crowded or overwhelming. Last stop, of course, was the gift shop, where Bou explained how to shop for authentic tequila. There was no pressure to buy, but we couldn't resist snapping up a bottle to take home! I was skeptical that this would be a touristy kind of experience, but it was far from it. Instead, it was both fun and educational! Our niece and her fiance; booked a jeep tour off the ship and said they had a blast. Read Less

A trip that can be arranged by CruiseOne. We went to a tequila presentation, a chocolate presentation and a great cooking class, where you are taught cooking techniques, make your own lunch and drink margaritas! Very good time.

We had a lot of fun in Cozumel, the trip to the tequila tasting was quick, even though we came into downtown instead of the other port. Our tour guide, Gian, was funny, entertaining and very knowledgeable. We had a great time learning the proper way to taste tequila, and the taco buffet was delicious! And even better, it got us back to port with enough time to poke around the shops! Read Less

We are so glad we picked this excursion - it was a fun, festive thing to do as a couple on Christmas day. The tequila tasting was well done - we actually learned a lot and enjoyed the tasting itself. After the tasting we got small free margaritas (excellent, with an opportunity to buy larger margaritas if you wish), nice taco buffet, and opportunity to browse and buy at a good gift shop. Be forwarned that there are lots of "opportunities" to tip many people along the way, though, so bring small bills. Read Less

We went to the Hacienda Antigua tequila tasting after a taxi driver picked us up and recommended it. It was amazing! My mother (who absolutely hates tequila) loved each one! We learned that the tequila in the US is generally watered down and crappy, which is why it has a sour taste. Good (read: authentic) tequila is smooth and sweet. The tour is free (we tipped) and the staff is so nice! We'd go back just to get more tequila! Read Less
