Cozumel Taco Culture and Beach

Amazing Experience
August 23, 2023
My son (17 YO) and I both loved this experience. Our guide was very attentive and wanted to make sure we had a truly enjoyable time which we did. Everything about our experience was really fun and very personalized. The Tequila tasting, hands on chocolate making, a little beach time and quick walk to the top of the light house but especially the lunch with the family who cooked for us (tacos, guacamole, salsa) and shared a meal in their lovely back yard setting. My son got to help which he really enjoyed doing. What a really special and sweet experience.

Cozumel Taco Culture and Beach Excursion
June 28, 2023
Loved everything about this excursion! The tequila tasing was fun and educational. Sightseeing in El Cedral was short but nice. Our favorite part was the delicious taco lunch in the backyard of a family home. They were so nice and welcoming. My whole family enjoyed it. Our guide Clemente was the best...super nice, informative, and funny. The last stop was the beach. Very beautiful, wish we had more time there, but the water was too rough to get in anyway. Thank you for a great time in Cozumel.

Cozumel Taco Culture and Beach
June 04, 2023
We booked the Taco Culture and Beach excursion in Cozumel, Mexico. We started our tour with a drive around the island accompanied by the island’s history. Next, we had an organic tequila and chocolate tasting. Then, we drove to the historical town El Cedral, known for being the oldest Mayan settlement in Cozumel. After having a quick town tour, we visited a local family and had a wonderful authentic lunch, which included delicious tacos, salsa and guacamole. Next stop was the Beach. It was beautiful and very scenic. The beach wasn’t crowded and included lounge chairs, changing rooms, and showers. Special thank you to our tour guide/driver Isla. She was very accommodating, attentive and personal. She even brought delicious cupcakes for lunch to celebrate my birthday. It was a really nice touch. Isla definitely made our tour brighter and more interesting. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our day in Cozumel. Highly recommended!

Perfect Day!

Great tour start to finish. It was easy to find the meet up location just outside the port gates. One friend was had a bad ankle so we used a ship wheel chair for the day. Jorge, our driver was knowledge and his personality made the trip relaxing and fun. We started with a stop at an educational chocolate and tequila tasting. The tequila was very good and the gentleman that conducted the tasting was hilarious. Next up was a drive to a small village in the center of the island that is home to a 4th generation Mayan family. The wife made the food and we participated and the husband explained about the culture. You cook in their outdoor kitchen at their home and eat in the back yard amongst fruits trees. The food was amazing, come with an appetite! The town is very charming with a large gathering spot and some ruins next to the church. Last stop was the beach on the other side of the island, rugged with a nice breeze. You can swim but we didn’t. Highly recommend!

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide, Luis, was friendly, courteous and tailored the tour to our needs and wants. The local vendors at the venues were equally friendly and attentive. The taco lunch was a wonderful mix of food and culture. The Cardenas's made us feel like members of the family. Great way to see a lot of the island in one day.

This was such a unique, non-touristy excursion we could have picked. It was amazing. Our driver was interesting, knowledgeable and fun to be with. Miss Elvira(?) and her son were so welcoming and gracious. The tacos, guacamole, and salsas were the best I’ve ever had. I can’t say enough about the whole day. Fabulous!

Great Way to Experience Cozumel!

We had a wonderful time exploring Cozumel on this excursion! We were so pleased with all we were able to do and see in the time we had. The highlight was the fantastic lunch we were served by a local family. They treated us with such kindness and were very welcoming. The lunch was so delicious, and it was fun to participate in the preparation as well. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledge as well. A fun way to see Cozumel, relax on one of their beautiful beaches, and learn some unique history!

Completely Satisfied
January 28, 2023
From the drive around the island, the history of the island, the tasting of tequila, and especially the taco making and tasting - my daughter and I had a wonderful time. We saw the beach and got photos but didn’t want to spend our time there. Luis was absolutely fantastic. Very attentive, informative and accommodating. We met a lovely family while tasting tequila. William (I believe was his name) was interesting and funny. But the best part of the excursion was having lunch with Martine, his lovely wife and her sister. The food, while simple, was delicious and plentiful. Sitting in their back yard while eating pork tacos with homemade guacamole and salsa was very relaxing. And while the excursion was almost a full day, we still had time to visit some shops for items to take home. Thanks Luis for a great visit to Cozumel - little bit of everything.

Cozumel Taco Culture and Beach
October 27, 2022
This tour was awesome. It was not what my wife and I expected, it was so much more. I had thought we arranged this through the cruise itself, but we were wrong. It is a local tour that showed us around Cozumel. We went around as much of the island as we were allowed. Clemente was awesome. He was extremely informative and personable. He took us to a nice beach so we could go swimming. . It was a little rocky, but beautiful. He then took us to the middle of the island to an charmingly small village. He took us to a friends house where his friend and his wife cooked us the most amazing tacos we had ever had. We made fresh guacamole, fresh salsa. She made fresh tortilla from masa. There was pork that had been marinated in a really sour orange. It was just awesome. It was an amazing experience.

Authentic Cozumel Experience
July 11, 2022
It was a great experience. I had a great day with Isa. She picked me up by the Pemco gas station and we headed north of the island. She was able to give me a historical account of the island and how it was founded. Our first stop was the Flavors of Cozumel. I had the most delicious chocolate made from cocoa beans and 100% agave. Amazing. Then I had the authentic corn tortilla with home made Mayan salsa. Then on to the best thing. Tequila tasting. They will give you how real tequila is made. My favorite were the flavored tequilas. Next stop the Beach... it was beautiful and very scenic. I loved the fact that that side of the island was not commercially developed so you get the authentic island feel. Then it's lunch at a local home of the Martin Cardenas. It was an amazing meal of pork, home made tortillas, chips, guacamole and salsa. If you are looking for an authentic Cozumel experience, this is it. You will make friends for life.

Best tour ever!
May 29, 2022
This was so much fun! Got a tour all around Cozumel with a fun beach stop at an amazing famous Mojito bar where you get to see it made right in front of you with a mortar and pestle. Learned lots of history and learned all about the Mayan Goddess Ixchel of Cozumel. The farm visit was so educational- learned all about how to make Tequila, with lots of sampling of tequila and horchata, and saw lots of farm animals and fruit trees. We made salsa and guacamole and are delicious sopes. But the best part is the tour guide/owner- Clemente. He is the best tour guide ever - makes you feel like family and is so welcoming the entire time. Never a dull moment and he was the perfect host and guide! Highest rating for this tour!
