Cozumel Bar Hop Excursion Reviews
The Cozumel Bar hop tour was a great way to experience the other side of the island! We had a great time with the staff and really got to enjoy the lovely beaches of Cozumel. Rastas was our favorite by far; next time, we are getting a cab and heading straight over there for the day!
The Bar Hop was great! Coconuts was my bar. The staff were extremely friendly and we met some friends that ended up doing the same exact excursions we were doing at other ports. The views were beautiful! Drinks were strong (except at the first bar) and the food was delicious. Be sure to get the coconut shrimp at rastas and the salsa at Coconuts!
We booked the Cozumel Bar Hop. an independent company that takes people around to bars on the gorgeous undeveloped side of the island. We met at Senor Frogs and went to 4 different bars. The drinks were strong (with names like Mayan Sacrifice, The Iguana, and Rasta Punch) and the salsa and guacamole delicious and plentiful. We were feeling no pain at the end. I missed dinner that night and slept straight through Belize!
Another great day. Beautiful weather, great group and great tour. This tour is the one where they take you to the uninhabited side of Cozumel to experience a true Caribbean island. No resorts, only a handful of people and beautiful views. We stopped at 4 bars and each one you get a different "shot". Basically a mini-mixed drink. Great tour, very relaxing, hassle-free way to enjoy Cozumel.
This was the best excursion of our trip! Highly organized and a ton of fun! They took us by air conditioned bus to the "other" side of Cozumel where there is no electricity (therefore no credit cards so bring plenty of cash for this one) and took us to 4 beach bars. Each bar was unique and offered gorgeous beaches and a free shot upon arrival. We had a blast with our "babysitters" Coleen and Sylvia and are happy to report that we are officially "fo ho's"! Will definitely do this again next time we are in Cozumel!
We did the Cozumel Bar Hop and had a great time. You might look at the name of this tour and think booze cruise on land, but except for 4 sorority girls that were entertaining and interacted well with the older group, this is not a booze cruise. Yes you were provided a shot at each of the stops, but they were more juice than booze, and you were not forced to drink them, but they were tasty. Each stop offered a great view of the rugged side of the island, and the stops were more restaurant than bar, and the food choices were quite good! Only complaint is that the sound system in the van did not work, so we were not signing between stops and the trip back to the ship. If you want a stress free tour of the other side of the island, I recommend the Bar Hop, even if you do not drink.
The port of Cozumel is really nothing more than thousands of trashy souvenir stores and bars. Great for the first time you visit, boring after that. We elected to visit the east side of the island, 30 miles of absolutely uninhabited coastline. (It is ALL a national park) What has been permitted is a FEW small, simple beach bars. The best way to see them is the Bar Hop. Fun, laid back, unhurried, and NOT the drunken mob I was fearing. A great way to spend the day.
The Bar Hop was a lot of fun. We took a cab down town to meet the operator, and took an air conditioned bus to the other side of the island. We learned about the island, and stopped at four different places. Afterwards we were dropped off at the port and did some shopping.
We booked the Cozumel Bar Hop, before we left home. This is a tour of the island of Cozumel that also stops at 4 beach bars on the uninhabited, beautiful, quiet side of the island. Each stop included a small welcome drink that they are known for locally. The only bad planning on my part is that this tour departs from the Punta Langosta pier, over 2 miles from Puerta Maya, where we were docked. A 5 minute or less cab ride is $8! We decided to save the cash for drinks and walk it. It wasn't bad.
We met up with Tom, whom I had corresponded with online, and our guide Colleen @ Starbucks. Tom and Coleen were incredibly welcoming and nice people. The ride from town over to the 'other side' was quick and included a short history lesson of Cozumel that was interesting and informative. You also get a free shirt! I almost forgot about that. Built in souvenir in the $57 pp price. The 4 stops are all fantastic in their own unique way. Great food and drinks at all the stops. Warning: Stop 3 has a crazy size drink that will do you in! I will recommend this to friends as well as clients in the future. I may even do the hop again myself, in the future.
