History Walking Tour
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.

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.

Off the beaten path with a small group, which is a good thing when on a cruise. Isra was a great guide and very knowledgable of the history. Personable and a good sense of humor. The tequila tasting was interesting (and tasty) but a bit of a sales job - which is OK if you're ready for it. There wasn't a lot of pressure to buy (but we did anyway). We enjoyed the free meal, too, but be ready to pay tips. I recommend this for those seeking a more historical type of excursion. Try to get Isra!

Met our tour guide at the Air Force Monument and proceeded on a very worthwhile and interesting walk through the area.
This was a very nice walk back to town, with Daniel, pointing out the historical sites and giving us the historical significance behind the sites Ended with Tequila tasting and lunch. Very good tour, 4 1/2 stars.
