If it's your first time in Cozumel, choose this tour, you won't regret it!!!!! What a wonderful excursion! Whenever I go somewhere for the first time, I like to the the full introduction to the city (or island in this case). I've been to Cozumel once before and always regretted only visiting just one beach. This excursion was just the ticket to remedy the situation.
We started at Hotel Cozumel, where our guides took us to our buggies. The cars are a bit of a challenge - no power steering and a tricky tranny (4-speed), but it was fun driving it around. I prefer this approach to a van any day. Fresh air, great views ... A blast in one word.
Our tour commenced with a nice drive to El Cedral - the oldest town on the island. The drive is scenic. There we met a Mayan woman who fed us some authentic Mayan food - who knew that pumpkin seeds can be made into a delish chutney?! We got a brief history lesson, stuffed our faces with yumminess, and took off to a beach.
At the beach there is food, drinks, mariachis, a few masseuses, and a nice swimming area naturally blocked off by the rock formations (makes swimming more enjoyable as you don't need to battle the waves).
Last stop was back at the Hotel Cozumel. There they take you snorkeling (beware of fire coral - my thigh still burns two weeks later) and our guides would dive and take photos of us under water or get us little creatures to look at. Sea urchin was my fave!!! The tour ended with a nice Mexican lunch (included in the tour price) - fajitas, pico de gallo, seafood salad, etc.
We had enough time to do some shopping after :) and took our time getting back to the ship. The tour was well worth it and I'm so glad to have been able to check out the whole island and see all it has to offer!!!! Btw, our tour guided rocked!
