Cozumel Island Tour Excursion Reviews
Our tour guide didn't tell us one thing about the island. We just drove around and went back to the ship. Waste of time.
We chose the "Living History & Island Overview" sightseeing excursion. Nicely organized wait in the theater with clearly identified areas for each tour group. The twenty-two of us on this tour were escorted off the ship by our guide, Moy, who proved to be an interesting and engaging guide. We traveled in an small air-conditioned bus to enjoy our visit around the island. As the description of the excursion described, we did visit The Mayan Cacao Company, a Tequileria, the original small town settlement on Cozumel and scenic El Mirador. We learned interesting facts about the Mayans, Cozumel's history, the making of chocolate and tequila and enjoyed samples of each. Great excursion and not too expensive!
"Cozumel Highlights and Shopping" with Margarite as our guide. We were able to skip the "shopping". This was a wonderful all around tour. We were in Cozumel years ago and did the snorkeling and Mayan ruins so this was something new for us. Margarite was wonderfully knowledgeable and spoke understandable English. She really made the tour special. We went to Discover America and saw the Voladores Flyer Show, replicas of pre-historic landmarks, museum of popular arts, the Mayan Caco Co., El Cedra Village, Hacienda Tequila Museum and El mirado. All the stops were very brief but enough to say, "been there and done that" We got lots of great pix. $64.99 a bargain!
We had a magnificent, wonderfully romantic cruise A++++++++.
3 hour tour of Cozumel in an air-conditioned bus; would have preferred an open vehicle, but that wasn't an option for this tour. Enjoyed the history lesson by the knowledgeable tour guide, but as many tours, the stops are scheduled to look and buy. Which I did. :)
Golf course was in good shape. Wide open and not crowded. Rarely waited on any hole. Not difficult but enjoyable. Service was also tops. Newer rental clubs at a fair price $ 50.00. Cart lady was pleasant.
We rented a jeep with a tour guide, maybe 6 jeeps total. Drove all around the island. It was very entertaining. The guides was wonderful.
We rented a car locally then headed out to drive the island. We checked out quite a bit on our own including eating on the "other side". We also snorkeled on the other side in a wonderful spot that had the reef 10 feet out. It was filled with marine life and was AMAZING!
We hired a car and driver to take us on a tour of the island. It was $25 a person (3 of us) plus a $20 tip (aggregate) at it was well worth it. We visited the beach areas as well as the interior. I feel it was money well spent as we saw both the tourist side and inhabitant side of the island. It sure beat sitting around in a Senor Frog's all day.
Pretty beaches. Tequila factory was interesting. Roads are in good condition.
Our tour guide, Margarita, was lovely, entertaining and very knowledgeable. She proudly presented the Mayan ruins at the San Gervais historical site, which was also adorned with many distracting iguanas. As the bus drove through the city and countryside, Margarita tutored us on the island history and current cultures and how the old and the new have blended into the society that is existing today. We also made a very quick 20-minute stop to a beach. Of course, we would have loved more beach time but since we weren't expecting the side tour, it was a nice bonus.
A very friendly and helpful tour company who took care of us and tried hard to give us the best time while on the island.
We were taken to San Gervasio Mayan ruins which was really quite interesting. After we were taken to a beach called El Mirador which was breathtakingly beautiful, however, it was also the dirtiest beach I've ever been on. There seemed to be no trash receptacles but old curlers, trash bags, and old tubes of toothpaste were strewn all over the beach. No one seemed to mind. We also visited a touristy tequila place and another dirty place (tourist trap) where the first Catholic Mass was performed. I feel so bad complaining because the people obviously need money but there were cereal boxes, bottles and plastic containers all over the place. Just gross. No trash receptacles here either. I would never go on this tour again.
