Cozumel
Dec 2019 • Family
Loved that we had two tour guilds to tell us all about the island and its history. They first took us to San Gervasio Mayan ruins where they got us a guild to take us through the ruins and tell us it's history. Then they took us tequila tasting. Third stop was a nice restaurant on the beach where we had a delicious lunch and we got to have fun on the beach. Our guilds were wonderful and so much fun. Thank you for a great day on Cozumel.

Unforgettable Experience
Jul 2019 • Friends
Went on a cruise July 27-August 4. This was my first cruise experience with my friend. We did our research on ways to save money and be smart while booking excursions. We reviewed excursions through cruise line but there were no customer reviews. We researched through trip advisor by looking at reviews and comparing prices. Booking this excursion online was very easy. Schedule of activities, contact information, and meeting directions were very clear. Once we arrived at port the meeting location was within walking distance and there was no need to take separate transportation. We met with our tour guide “Taz.” He had a sign for us and called us to double check we were at correct meeting location. Once we got on vehicle Taz went over tour schedule and gave us options on different activities available. My friend and I decided to see architecture site, tequila making tour and tasting, and time at the beach for snorkeling with lunch included. Taz was very knowledgeable on area, history, good food, and popular locations. Wonderful service and very punctual. I recommend taking lunch and snorkeling at the end of tour. It was a very unforgettable experience. I’m planning on taking another trip to Cozumel and will definitely book again with “Taz” through trip advisor!

Enjoyable Shore Excursion
Jul 2019 • Family
I was trying to find a better shore excursion than what was being offered through the cruise line that would be interesting to my 10 and 13-year-old. This was it! It was only the 3 of us, which made it even better. Tas (cab driver) met us at the pier and took us to the ruins where we met up with Ivan. Ivan is very knowledgeable and answered our questions thoroughly. Next up, lunch and snorkeling at a private resort.

Impressive ruins
Oct 2018 • Couples
One of the most impressive archaeological sites on the Mexican peninsula and the only ruins near the coast. It is advisory to take head cover because the temperatures can reach over 40 degrees Celsius. The Mayans were small people so when you enter the buildings make sure you lower your head because there isn't much headroom at the entrances. Our guide was very informative. The temple is out of bounds due to erosion and lack of respect for the building. The beach is one of the best on the coast and is free of seaweed

Cruise shore excursions
Jun 2018 • Family
We were in a Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas Cruise, we stopped at Costa Maya and went to this shore excursion, about 90-100kms from the Costa Maya Cruise Port we paid $100 for the taxi and ($5 i dont remember for the entrance on the Ruins), it started raining and the floor was slippery but the natives told us that the rain was the blessing of the Gods and once we got wet we were blessed by the Gods, unfortunately we couldn't explore a lot because of the rain and the slippery floor, was raining a lot and the driver prevented running and it took us long time to arrive there and go back to the cruise.

Shore Excursion from cruise company.
Jun 2018 • Family
Booked & paid through cruise company. "Mayan Ruins, Island Tour and Beach" ... With guide & narration, a bus ride to San Gervasio site of ruins. This is a smaller site; part of national park. Our tour was very good; enjoyed it; our guide was knowledgeable & professional. Gift shops opportunity. After ruins, bus took us to beach & beach side open-air restaurant. Lunch cost extra. Kids swam there. It was about 4-1/2 hr tour. Waiter, guide, driver --- all look for gratuities. .... there are other groups offering tours, but I was glad to be directed by cruise company.

Nice tour
We went on this tour early in our trip. The site was interesting. We would have liked to have gone to some of the ruins on the main land but we didn’t since the state department advised against taking the ferry.
The beach was beautiful but the waves were really rough! The food at the beach was okay and the service was a little slow but all in all we had a good time.
The tour was more private than I expected which was nice. It was just us with a private driver who was nice. He dropped us off at our hotel at the end and he was able to tell us about some of the sites around the island.

Nice overview of local Mayan archaeological site and relaxing lunch
My son and I signed up for this excursion for the afternoon our cruise was docked in Cozumel.
Our driver was Karima, and she was very friendly and a wonderful guide, telling us about Cozumel on the drive to the Mayan site and bringing us to Tortugas afterward.
At the archaeological park, our guide was Louie. We'd only signed up for the guided tour which was in the close vicinity of the visitor center. If we'd had more time, I'd have liked to walk to the further points. Louie gave us many details and was able to answer all my questions about the site, and also provided us his interpretation of motifs and numerological themes recurring in the ancient Mayan culture with respect to the Ixchel worship that occurred here. Very informative!
Tortugas was a nice stop. Not overrun with tourists, very laid back, and the food was very good. I didn't use the snorkeling gear, and my son brought his own, so I can't comment on what they might provide there for gear. It was nice to swim with the schools of fish and get some underwater photos/video.
Things I'll keep in mind for next time: remember the local time zone may vary from ship's time, take water shoes (or use flippers) since the coast is a stone base and some spots are rough on the feet.
