Cozumel Jose Cuervo Tequila Tasting and Discover Mexico Excursion Reviews
Another 4 hour tour, where we started with a drink of Marguerittas, then we saw a short movie about the history of Cozumel. We walked around the park and were shown miniature replicas of when the Spanish came to Cozumel. Then we went to the chocolate making factory, where we made chocolate which was lots of fun and were given a taste of a hot chocolate drink made from the chocolate.. We then had a taste of 3 different types of Tequilla and then off we went to a Tacos buffet with different types of meats and of course we had a choice of drinks, one of which was a Marguerita. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was very interesting to learn all about Tequila and how it is processed.
Carlos was amazing and way better than expected!!!! A definite recommend
Have done this tour twice; enjoyed the first tour better as we spent a bit more time in the Discover Mexico exhibit and learned a lot more about the history and culture of the area. This time around the tour was fun and the tequila was great, but not much culture; did not see the inside exhibits at all. Guess quality of the tour depends on guide and also how many other ships are in?
Informative and fun.
Great look at history, geography, culture and language of Mexico. And of course great tequilas, margaritas, and tacos!
Jeeps and Tequila tour in Cozumel. Very hot but still fun. Learned everything we needed to know about tequila and then some. Always look for 100% agave on the bottle. If you shake it and it foams, it's not 100% agave. 100% agave does not need extra sugar. Sugar causes the foam. We left the Mayan village and headed to Punta Sur beach. It was beautiful and very peaceful. On a scale of 1-10, I'd say 6. Probably wouldn't do it again.
The Jose Cuervo Tequila Tasting was very nice. Our guide, Martin (with 5 r's) was gracious and funny. We paid $65 a head and it was worth every penny. The whole thing lasted 4 hours and covered Mexican history, Agave horticulture lesson, Tequila tasting, free margaritas and lunch. I highly recommend this excursion!
Nice tour!! The Discover Mexico park was informative and the artwork was a visual treat. Learned a ton about Tequila during the tasting. Memo ( Tour Guide ) did a great job.
This tour was a highlight of the trip - we had such a great time!
Learned a lot about how tequila was made and as wine drinkers it was fascinating to hear how similar it is to the wine making process. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly - the staff provided great samples of anything we wanted to try. Nice facilities, lunch included. Great way to spend the morning in Cozumel and still have some time to do whatever after.
Cozumel is an over-developed tourist trap. You are not forced to walk through a duty free shop constructed on half the pier in order to get back to the ship. The Jose Cuervo tequila experience was not that great. Over half of the tour was devoted to a lecture of Mexican history. This was not disclosed in the tour description.
The Jose Cuervo Tequila tasting is held next to the Mexican History Museum. The presentation was informative, the tequila was enjoyable and the lunch midway thru the Museum tour was tasty. A good value for sure.
