Great experience and highly recommended. Been in September 2018 and August 2019. Both times it was incredible. Here again on the island July 2021 and appears they are closed. I hope they reopen like everything else is…everyone needs to see the many wonderful things they offer for education and entertainment. Plus the gift shop had some of the most unique items I was unable to find in any shop in town.

We did the Mexican Tastes and Traditions Interactive Excursion at the Discover Mexico Park in Cozumel at our Cozumel stop for our cruise and simply loved it! This is the perfect tour for the intellectually and culturally curious or the non-beach lovers. It would also be great for a more relaxed day. Miriam was our guide and she was outstanding! She reminded me of one of my favorite Spanish professors (and I believe she said she has a teaching background). This woman is simply a wealth of knowledge and her passion is contagious. We learned so much during the tour and Miriam gave us a lot to think about! We loved painting the alebrijes and hearing the history of the art form. The chocolate workshop was delightful and it was so cool to make your own chocolate! The voladores de papantla were amazing and their history was fascinating. The food was delicious (we did the taco buffet) and it was nice to eat something traditional instead of the primarily Tex-Mex food that most of the local restaurants seemed to serve the tourists. I would highly recommend this tour to any of my friends and family visiting Cozumel! It was my husband's favorite excursion on our entire cruise, which says a lot since he is primarily an active person rather than a museum person!

We took a taxi to this place as we called months in anticipation and asked about details and they said we needed no reservation. When we arrived it was closed and security guard said it was like that for at least a whole good year. Luckily we were able to take a different activity on that date.
I would consider calling before venturing yourself to go.

We recommend getting the whole package and making sure Martin is your guide!

We did the museum guided tour, the chocolate making tour and lunch. All in all we spent about 3 hours, but we could have stayed much longer.

Martin is a wealth of knowledge and he is happy to answer questions while teaching TONS about Mexican culture, history and geography. Just an amazing guide! He also took great photos for us throughout the park... above and beyond service for sure.

The chocolate was a delight! We made our own bars while we were spoiled with chocolate drinks (they can make with or without alcohol) and treats! We were given homemade mole and chocolate dipped candies.

Lunch was also amazing! Perfectly seasoned grilled chicken “street” tacos with fresh guacamole, salsa and corn chips... I’m still full!

Please don’t miss this tour! The detail they have put into this museum is just wonderful 💕

We took a Norwegian Cruise excursion to the park.lead by Wendy, our tour guide. The Joy of Chocolate excursion. We had a great time learning the history of chocolate and even made our own chocolate bar. Afterwards, we toured the park. Wendy did an excellent job from start to finish. She was always checking to see if she had everyone in the group. She was very informative about everything. She knows her history of chocolate and of Mexico very well. She spoke very good English and was very happy. The joy of her country is contagious. She did a fantastic job!!

Miriam was the best guide we have ever had. My husband and I did the chocolate and alebreje tour. She was phenomenal. She really knows her job and is a true artist and historian. The park is immaculate and they take great pride in their facility. The lunch was the best we have had on a tour. Would recommend this for any age. The experience was so much more than advertised.

Have visited several times. Last time was in 2019. Went on a Carnival cruise this past week. Im sorry to say Discover Mexico is closed. Grass and weeds have taken over and the property is for sale.

While there were a few cultural experiences, the highlights were the generous Jose Cuervo tequila tasting and the fresh made lunch with homemade tortillas, AND the margarita! This was just a fun and low key excursion. I would do it again! It was not a far drive from the cruise port, the van picked us up at the port. Not much walking and our young tour guide, Brian Sterling, was AWESOME!

Visited as part of a shore excursion on the Carnival Liberty. Loved it! Fun and interesting! Well worth the $69 per person. A short (5 min.) ride by van from the port provided as part of the tour I booked. If visiting on your own, it is not walkable, but should be a cheap taxi ride. The "park" consists of a small museum, scaled down replicas of numerous ruin sites and other landmarks throughout Mexico, a gift shop, and it is home to the Jose Cuervo Tequila Tasting. (Clean restrooms, too) The tour included the museum and grounds, a tasting, and lunch. The tasting takes place in air conditioned, renovated cargo containers and included a detailed explanation of tequila production and the differences in types of tequilas. You taste three different tequilas - similar to a wine or beer tasting - look, smell, sip, etc. After the tasting, we had a margarita and talked more about various tequilas. Of course, there is an opportunity to buy some :-) Lunch was provided, and it was great! Tacos, rice and beans, and sweet potatoes with chorizo plus one beer and one soft drink. If you're looking to buy tequila - I found that the prices there were cheaper than the duty free shops and my ship; something to consider. Cash and credit cards accepted in the gift shop.
