Cozumel’s fixed tours can feel rushed and impersonal. Take the day at your own pace with a private sightseeing tour. Explore the town, visit a chocolate factory and learn more about the island’s history with the option to visit its Mayan ruins or a traditional ceramic workshop. Relax during your trip with tequila-tasting and time to unwind on Palancar beach, with pier pickup and drop-off also included.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at your arrival pier at a convenient time. With your party, head off on a tour of Cozumel’s attractions by air-conditioned vehicle. Begin with a tour of the town’s landmarks, then visit a chocolate factory to learn how chocolate was produced and used by the Mayan people.

Next, get a taste of tequila, a Mexican specialty, before heading to either Mayaluum, where craftsmen use traditional techniques to work clay and limestone, or the historic San Gervasio Mayan ruins (entry not included).

Then, cruise the Coastal Highway and enjoy the views, stopping to take pictures as you wish. Pause for lunch based on your guide’s recommendations (own expense), before finishing your day on Palancar beach, where you can snorkel, swim or snooze in a “hamaca” between the coconut trees. At the end of your adventure, be dropped off back at the pier for your ferry to the mainland.

Booked directly with Tours Plaza - ask for Victor!

We began the tour with driving to the Mayan Ruins (we requested to see this). A bit disappointed in this part - the history is neat, but it was just a pile of the same rocks over and over again in different forms. We skipped...More

chocolate factory

We were a half hour late getting to our excursion because our ship would not let us disembark due to a Norwegian ship docking next to ours. Not the tours fault but then after we met the guide he talked to us for about 20...More

A Must Do In Cozumel!

This was the perfect tour for our family. I booked through Trip Advisor instead of our cruise ship and saved a significant amount of money. Our driver, Julio, met us exactly where he said he would and we had no problems finding him. Our party...More

Excellent Excursion in Cozumel

You can email them with any cancellations or changes you may have. Our dates and times changed to when we would be there and everything was taken care of through email - very professionally as well.

Not sure what the tuttle rescue is but I believe you could do all 3. We weren’t able to disembark for 2 hours so we only ended up having 2 hours and we were able to go to the ruins, tequila tasting, shopping and also eat off... More
