We enjoyed our trip to the Discover Mexico park. You can see models of Mayan ruins and other important buildings as you walk through the park. We ground cocoa beans to make our own chocolate to bring home. There were samples of margaritas, lessons on tequila, and tacos for lunch. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and fun. There is a gift shop where you can buy locally produced items. I brought home a black clay vase. There are locals who will make bracelets with your name for a suggested price, and you take pictures with a burro, but they only take $$, so bring some. I would do this tour again. It is geared towards those of drinking age, but I think youngsters would like the chocolate making and the models. We took a cab from where our cruise ship berthed (about $10), but the site provided a cab back. We could have walked, (only a couple of miles), but with the hot sun, decided to go with the cab. That was probably a wise decision after the margaritas and the tequila!

This was one of the best on-shore excursions we ever took. Our tour guide, Ruy, was professional, funny and very knowledgeable about tequila, chocolate and the Mexican culture. Highly recommended.
We wanted to do something for all of us ranging from 9 to 70 years old and this was perfect. The chocolate making was fun, the tequila tasting was informative (with lots of tequila!), and the tacos were great. The educational component around the ruins was cool too and made me want to go back to Mexico and do a tour of all the temple ruins. Also, our tour guide was super nice. Just really sweet. There are also delicious passionfruit margaritas (more tequila!) at the end. Note if you walk here, it's not that far, like 15 min, but you do have to run across the street once you get there.

We were delighted to find out that we had a private tour. Our tour guide Bou, was amazing. He was full of knowledge and was able to answer questions and gave us a great experience. We never felt rushed or that we were pushed through any part of our tour (I think we were there for 4 hours). We learned so much about Mexico, tequila and chocolate. The taco buffet was delicious and the drink tastings and other food tastings were amazing. You won't regret this one!!!

We were surprised to find that we had a private tour. Our guide filled our heads with interesting facts about each exhibit in the museum. Then, he explained the discovery of cocoa and showed us how to make chocolate. We had an amazing tequila tasting that made us experience the finest tequila in a way that we had never before! Next, we had a delicious kiwi margarita after taking photos. Afterwards, we had an authentic plate of shredded pork tacos with all the accoutrements. Finally, we witnessed a "rain dance" by descendants of the Tiano Indians. It was amazing!
