What You Can Expect

Combo Tour: Cozumel Island Tour, Mayan Ruins and Playa Mia Beach Park

El Mirador lookout in Cozumel

Board your air-conditioned coach at a central location in Playa Mia and relax on the 45-minute drive. Your first stop is the archeological site of San Gervasio, once the political, cultural and commercial center of the Maya on Cozumel. Follow your expert guide on foot around the island’s largest and most significant Mayan city, inhabited from 200 AD to the Spanish conquest during the 16th century.

Visit several temples, including a structure dedicated to Ixchel—goddess of fertility—and imagine the Mayan women who made their pilgrimage to this sacred place from the mainland. Hear about their offerings for fertility and abundant crops as you admire the site’s engravings amid lush jungle foliage and brilliantly colored flowers. Your guide will point out an altar located on a sacbe (ancient road) leading into the ceremonial center, where multiple statues to Ixchel have been discovered.

After your 45-minute tour, hop aboard your comfortable coach and head to the western side of Cozumel on a 1-hour scenic drive. Take in the Caribbean views from Cozumel’s uninhabited side, making a quick stop en route at El Mirador—a vista point with fantastic photo ops! When you’ve completed your route around the island, arrive at Playa Mia Grand Beach and Water Park for two hours of fun in the sun.

Enjoy the best of Cozumel at this top-notch facility, which offers a range of activities for all ages. This famous beach park is the ideal place to swim in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, sunbathe on the white-sand beach and have a blast in the pools at the water park. Take the kids to Buccaneer’s Bay with a lagoon pool, which includes a pirate ship, water canons, water sprays and animal slides. Make a splash on the 200-foot (61-meter) long Twin Twister waterslides or head to the underwater Mayan city.

With unlimited non-alcoholic beverages from the still drinks fountain included, relax with your favorite drink at the Oasis Island pool and Hydro-massage tub. When you’re hungry, enjoy an international buffet at La Velaria Restaurant, where you’ll find a variety of salads, side dishes, entrées such as Veracruz-style fish fillet, roasted suckling pig, barbecue chicken and beef fajitas—plus dessert!

Your tour ends with drop-off in the shopping district of Cozumel at 5pm.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was an excellent trip. The guide was brilliant with history and we put many pieces to the puzzle together regarding the Mayan people. The Island tour was very scenic. Playa Mia was the best beach we visited in the Islands. The facilities and activities are second to none. Thank you

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Our guide was very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable of the area, especially the Mayan ruins. The departure place was a little difficult to find, but we just kept asking for directions. Only a short 5 minute walk. Love having just two other passengers on our semi-private tour...........
