Enjoy a broad and pleasant overview of Cozumel island on this private 5-hour shore excursion. After pickup from the cruise-ship or ferry pier at a time of your choosing, your personalized guide takes your group (up to nine people) by air-conditioned van to a variety of sights on Cozumel, which translates in Mayan as the ‘Island of Swallows.’
Hear the history behind the landmarks downtown on a city tour. Then, stop at a chocolate factory to learn about how the Maya people made and used chocolate. Follow your chocolate lesson with a tasty tequila tasting.
Next, you have the option of visiting either Mayaluum, a traditional clay and limestone craft factory, or the San Gervasio Maya ruins. Continue along the coastal highway, stopping for photo ops as you like. This stretch of the tour is a good time to purchase lunch at one of the beachfront restaurants, and your guide will have recommendations on hand.
Finish your outing at the beach of Palancar, where you can swim, snorkel, or just relax in a hammock under the coconut-palm trees. Your shore excursion ends with return transport to the pier.
