The Basics

Stroll through the sacred gardens of the goddess Ixchel, explore the large Ka’na Nah building, and visit nearby cenotes (natural swimming holes). Most Cozumel island tours visit the San Gervasio ruins, along with other local attractions such as a tequila factory and a chocolate factory. Some combo tours allow you to see the ruins via dune buggy and may include a snorkeling or beach excursion as well. Private and small-group tour options are available.

Luis was an island native and very knowledgeable about the island and its history. He took us anywhere we wanted to go. We asked him to take us to a local place for lunch and had a fabulous meal. I highly recommend this tour

Cozumel Mayan Ruins and Beach: Private Tour
Birgit was so easy to deal with and communicated regularly providing details for our tour. Gerson was a fantastic tour guide! The BEST! He was very knowledgeable about the San Gervasio Ruins and Mayan Culture. When we were hungry for lunch, he suggested a wonderful beachside restaurant in San Miguel that served us the best ceviche, guacamole, chips and sizzling fajitas. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and will highly recommend him! Muchas gracias Gerson y Birgit!
