Tour Details

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 tour now for a fun and active way to gain new insights into the culture and people of Cozumel.

We had been to Cozemel before but never saw it thru the eyes of our tour guide Ruy. Very informative and very nice guy. Took us all over the place. We really enjoyed this tour and Ruy. Loved the little bar he took us to for lunch. All nice things on this tour.

Historic walking tour

Our guide was prompt and even waited for another group to join us. She was very polite and well versed throughout the tour, explained the history of cozumel from the time the spanish explorers arrived to the present time. We had a delicious lunch in a local restaurant and even stayed with us for an extended period of time. I highly recommend this tour and guide.

Walking Tour Cozumel

This tour was really great. My cousin and I ran late and the tour guide did his best to accommodate us, so definitely points there. Also the tour was informative and we got to go to a Tequila tasting session, which was superb. The guide also carried us to a variety store to get some shopping done and it finished in enough time to get a little beach time on our own. All in all, it was pretty good. Make sure to pack comfortable walking shoes though.

pleasant walk through history

Our guide was very personable and we enjoyed his history lesson of the island. The only negative was the weather. Just as we started, it began to pour. Luckily, we were inside a small church. The rain continued for at least an hour. We couldn't move. The guide called his manager several times but did not get a response. He also texted. Finally, he called his friend who took photos and his friend picked us up and took us on to the next location. It seems as if there should be better preparations when the weather is bad.

Wonderful Tour

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!
