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.

Book this 3-hour tour now for a fun and active way to gain new insights into the culture and people of Cozumel.

I really enjoyed this tour. Turned out to only be 3 of us on the tour as others didn't show. We walked back to town hearing all of the history of cozumel. It was interesting and tour guide Rocky was amazing. We had a wonderful lunch and afterwards we chose to walk back to ship. It was a great way to spend our time in Cozumel. HIghly recommend.

We had a fabulous experience in Cozumel. I have been there two other times and never took this kind of excursion but it really was a great history informational tour, we got to learn a lot and I really really appreciate your tour guide she was great took us to a little out-of-the-way place for lunch and everything was just a wonderful experience. She even took us to a place for my husband to get a tattoo and let me say we couldn't have asked for anything better thank you so much for making our stay in Cozumel so wonderful!

The walk wasn’t too long although it was very hot. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. We were only four people so it was really a private tour. Lunch was wonderful.

Arturo was a great guide. Finding the spot to meet was a bit challenging. We were early, so we went accross the street and had guac and margaritas first.

Like others have said, the meeting location wasnt where the information told us to go. I quick call and we were good to go. Once at the meeting location everything was great. Our guide Katy was excellent. She is very nice, knowledgeable and patient. We will definitely ask for Katy again if we visit Cozumel in the future. We learned a lot, bought some locally made items, had an excellent cup of coffee at Coz Coffee Roasting Co and had a great lunch at La Choza. Overall at great tour.
