About

Explore the town, visit a chocolate factory and learn more about the island’s history with the option to visit its Mayan ruins. Relax during your trip with tequila-tasting and time to unwind on Palancar beach, with pier pickup and drop-off also included.

Perfect Cozumel Day
Oct 2021
One Day in Cozumel and we wanted to see it all, our list we gave to Gerry before we arrived included: Beach with Snorkeling, Tacos, Chocolate Tasting, Music, Market, Ruins, and seeing the island. We got to do everything we wanted! Gerry provided snacks and drinks and drove us all around the island, let our kids practice Spanish with him, and even showed us our church. He was very friendly and knew so many people that could get us in and set us up with a wonderful tour guide at San Gervasio. The pick up was wonderful and prompt and the drop off was great timing as well. Thank you so much for making our day so great!

Won't issue a refund

Our May cruise was cancelled and the operator is refusing to issue a refund, which is against their own policies.

Hola, due to the Covid19 pandemic, since March 20th, all the Cozumel bound cruise ships have been canceled, and no tourists are coming to the Island either. All this has caused a cash flow problem for us, and it is for this reason that we haven't been able to refund you. But please don't believe that we are trying to avoid our responsibility. We hope that the cruise lines will begin operating sometime again, everything will go back to normal and we'll be able to refund you. We are asking here for a little patience. Thank you for your understanding.

Amazing private tour...great driver
Mar 2020
From the booking with Eduardo who had excellent email communication, to meeting our driver Leo at the cruise port, our tour was organized from the start. We had fun and enjoyed our tour of Cozumel. Leo's van was clean, comfortable and with cold air conditioning. He accommodated all of our requests and needs. We wanted to experience Cozumel from a local's perspective, and Leo did not disappoint. He took us to a neighborhood restaurant to have some authentic tacos, to a tequila tasting experience, to lunch on the beach with our feet in the sand. He made sure we got back to our ship in plenty of time. When looking for a shore excursion in Cozumel, don't hesitate to book with Tours Plaza.

Another excellent private tour with Tours Plaza
Mar 2020
I can't say enough about our tour. I toured with Tours Plaza 4 years ago and booked them again when I went on a recent cruise with my cousin. Our driver was Enrique and he was absolutely fantastic. We started off with Tequila tasting and then on to the ruins, after that we went and toured an authentic Mayan village called Pueblo Del Maize. If you ever go to Cozumel this place is a "must see". We wrapped up our tour by going to my favorite restaurant and we invited Enrique to have lunch with us. He was such a nice young man and we thoroughly enjoyed his company and spending the day with him.
So if you are ever in Cozumel contact Tours Plaza and the manager Eduardo is very helpful and will return emails usually the very same day. Thank you again Eduardo, Enrique and Tours Plaza for a wonderful day in Cozumel.

Fourth Time with Tours Plaza
Mar 2020
When you find something that works you stick with it! We have used Tours Plaza on four different occasions and they have always delivered more than we expected. Leo is an excellent guide and we have requested him since the first time. He has great knowledge of the Island and always makes sure that we are getting exactly what we want out of our day! Whether it is sightseeing or just a casual trip around the loop he is your guy!

JUAN is great!
Feb 2020
We had a private AC van with Juan as our guide. He was amazing- very knowledgable of the area and very kind. We were able to see many places in Cozumel and he never rushed us. We felt very comfortable with Juan and would HIGHLY reccoment him! Thank you JUAN for making our trip a memorable one!
The directions given where to locate our driver after booking our excursion were very easy to follow and the company was great to work with.

Great time
Feb 2020
Our group consisted of 8 adults. All of our communication before hand was done via email. All of our questions were answered promptly. The only issue we had was the Mayan Ruins cost more than we were told.
Gerry was AMAZING. He was exactly were we were told he would be. The meeting location was easy to find. Gerry was very informative. He knew we wanted local Vanilla and took us to a local store and we paid a fraction of what we would have in the port. We went to Señor Iguana for lunch it was the best food we had the entire vacation. We would certainly use Tours Plaza if we were every in Cozumel again.
