History Walking Tour
Located just off the shores of Mexico lies Cozumel, a largely undeveloped island full of Mayan ruins, a robust mangrove forest and some of the best diving spots in the world. A leisurely, 45-minute ferry ride can take you between downtown Cozumel and Playa del Carmen on the mainland.
During this informative walking tour you and your small group will explore San Miguel's beautiful downtown waterfront while learning fascinating facts about the island's history and culture.
Your local, knowledgeable professional guide will take you to see the Plaza of the 2 Cultures with its Mayan ruins and tribute to the fertility goddess Ixchel. In the downtown Main Plaza, you will hear the stories behind the Mexican flag monument as well as the Cozumel clock tower and the first city hall.
Along the way you will stop for a brief history lesson in tequila making with a tequila tasting. Expand on your culinary exposure with a mouthwatering lunch at a local and popular venue to re-energize.
Following the tour you will have some free time to explore the downtown area on your own and shop for souvenirs to remember your day in Cozumel.

I learned so much on this walking tour. Cozamel is rich in culture. I liked the tequila part of the tour as well even though I am not a drinker. I believe the tour was enhanced tremendously by our tour guides knowledge. I believe his name was Arturo. He did an excellent job.

Nice casual tour, leisurely pace with lunch at a local restaurant off the beaten path. Tequila tour stop was informative and the tasting was great. Tour guide was low key and accommodating. Distance to the meeting place for the tour was farther than the stated "3 blocks" from the ferry; more like 1/2 of a mile.
On our first cruise to Cozumel we really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Arturo was so nice and extremely patient with our group he was very informative about the history of the island. The lunch was great had the pork tacos and the tequila tasting was super fun we took home two bottles!
