Owner description: We are MORE than just a tour that visits bars... We’re an experience that makes you feel like, well, celebrating!. Our Hop is the best way to meet new people and fellow travelers from all over the world, while experiencing some of the cool, rustic beach bars and wonderful, unspoiled scenery. Most tourists have never even seen the unique beauty of the east side, where you won't find resorts, houses, crowds... not even electricity! Cozumel Bar Hop is dedicated to showing our guests the "other side’s" stunning stretch of secluded beaches, away from the masses..."The only hop tour that takes you off the tourist trail!"

Tom met us at Starbucks, introduced us to our guide. Colleen and 14 hearty souls were on their way. Colleen is the real deal.. Very professional, very knowledgeable and a whole lot of fun. The four bars were great. All brought something different to the trip. Even if you are a sipper and not a drinker you will enjoy the views and the people (both those on the tour and the locals). We ate fish tacos at Coconuts, good price, great taste, and a lot of grub. My wife and I split the meal and it was plenty.

The spectacular views from each stop far exceeded our expectations, even though we had been to Cozumel previously. Do not miss this tour.

When my girlfriend and I arrived in Cozumel on a cruise, there were 7 cruised ships at port that day. We were lucky to book this tour and get away from the port area, which would have been overcrowded. The tour itself was reasonably priced at $49US pp, but when you include tips for the driver and tour guides, food and drinks, the cost for us was a total of $92US pp. We felt that was a bit high for this tour . The bars weren't anything special, but overall we had a good time. We would recommend it for the experience, but we wouldn't do it again if we went back to Cozumel.

We decided to go on this tour as a cruise excursion. I do love a glass of wine with dinner but wouldn't consider myself a big drinker and was a bit concerned we'd be stuck with a bunch of wild partiers. Turned out there was nothing to worry about. Tom met us, collected our fees and explained what the tour would entail and introduced Colleen and Carlos. Colleen was a wonderful tour guide. She exudes a warmth that cannot be faked. She explained some of the history and geography of Cozumel as we traveled. It is clear she loves the area. Carlos was our driver and I felt safe the entire time. The bus you travel in is a really nice air conditioned Mercedes bus. At each stop you get a shot. It really is not just a shot of liquor--more like a sample of a delicious cocktail. All of them were fantastic! Each bar was overlooking the water and had beautiful views. Our group was fantastic--we made lots of new friends and enjoyed great food and drink. I highly recommend this tour!

Had a great time on the Bar Hop. It was our favorite part of the cruise. I can't say enough good about these guys. They are so professional from the time you book until your tour ends. We were given very detailed information about meeting spot and left right on time. We were on Carnival so we had to take a taxi to the meeting spot but regardless they will drop you off right at your ship so no taxis on the way back. We got back to the ship in plenty of time and since we were doing so good on time, we were allowed a bonus stop on the tour, not another bar but a beautiful scenic spot. The tour guides were great including the bus driver who always helped you off the bus at each stop. They gave us lots of information about the island and insider tips about the bars. They also took some great pics of us with our camera. We purchased some pictures from the woman at Coconuts, she takes awesome pics! Unfortunately we left them on the bus but Tom held on to them and will be shipping them back to us! Now that's what I call awesome customer service! We had Margaritas at each place which were about $5 - $10 and were plenty strong. I can handle pretty strong margaritas and 4 was definitely enough for me! You are at each place about 45 minutes, they give you 10 minutes notice to get ready to leave. We never felt rushed. There were lots of photo opportunities so even if you're not a drinker, you will still enjoy the beauty of this tour. One of the bars had a nice pool if you wanted to take a dip. There were about 15 of us on the tour and we felt like friends with everyone by the end. It is so much fun, I highly recommend it!

Thank you Cozumel Bar Hop!!

My group of four thought this was a terrific way to spend the afternoon in Cozumel, and we'd strongly recommend it to you.

We arrived in Cozumel via cruise ship, and disembarked from the ship as soon as it cleared customs. That gave us about 2.5 hours to do some shopping before meeting up with the Bar Hop crew. They made it easy to find them, and greeted us warmly. When everyone had checked in we walked a short distance to where our new, comfortable bus was waiting.

Our guides for the day were Greg and Colleen, and they both did a terrific job of telling us about the island and what we were going to see on the tour. While we were at each bar they made it a point to stop by and see how we were doing - very friendly people!

I would describe this tour as being highly flexible - you can make it what you want it to be. If you want to enjoy the complimentary drink at each bar and then head for the beach, your out-of-pocket expense and odds of getting smashed will be low. If, on the other hand, you want to have killer drinks at each stop and enjoy delicious food, with the associated out-of-pocket expense, go for it!

Be aware that there isn't electricity on the other side of the island, so they don't accept credit cards - whatever fun you want to have needs to be backed up with cash.

We had salsa, guacamole, and shrimp and conch ceviche at the first stops, and then the coconut shrimp at Rasta's. It was all excellent, and it went down that much smoother with the awesome drinks they pour.

Greg and Colleen were terrific hosts, and Gaspar our driver carefully "drove us to drink". We had a wonderful time with the Cozumel Bar Hop crew, and hope you will as well on your next visit to Cozumel.
